Finally: Madame Tussauds To Unveil Wax Michelle Obama In Tribute to Her Status as Budding Style Icon

Sure to be as stiff and unappealing as the original.
Madame Tussauds wax museum is adding Michelle Obama to its collection of famous figures in Washington.

Museum officials released pictures of the design process Wednesday and said the full figure will be unveiled in March. Designers will have spent six months on the figure, studying photos and video of the first lady.

General Manager Janine DiGioacchino says having an image of Obama is an honor because "as our nation's first African-American first lady, a proud working mom and budding style icon, Mrs. Obama is a role model to women around the corner and around the globe."
A budding style icon? Apparently they've never seen her in public wearing those drapes.

It was just a month ago when Madame Tussauds unveiled her husband to adoring fans.
