UPDATE as of March 28, 2019: The beauty queen's wax figure is finally here! Check out these photos of Pia Wurtzbach and her "twin":
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is once again making history with her very own wax figure! Her wax statue will stand at the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong Wax Museum. But, before it finds its spot there, the wax Pia will be unveiled in Manila!
The announcement about the big reveal came from the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong IG account: “It took months to make Pia Wurtzbach’s wax figure, but it’ll be only one more week before you get to see it in Manila! Mark your calendars because on March 29, the Queen herself is dropping by the SM MEGA Fashion Hall for the big reveal! See you there!”
Even Pia is super excited about her statue. It’s a dream come true for her. Upon news of the big reveal, Pia got emotional and took to Instagram stories saying: “I can’t wait for this! I can’t believe I’m gonna be immortalized in Madame Tussauds!”
Back in September, we already broke the news about Pia getting her very own wax statue. We reported then that the wax Pia will be wearing her blue iconic Michael Cinco gown. Designer Albert Andrada said that Pia’s wax figure might be posed relinquishing the crown, “so people would have photos as if they are being crowned by Pia.”
We can only imagine the hordes of Pinoy tourists who will flock to Madame Tussauds Hong Kong to snap a pic with the kween. Heck, we’d fall in line, too: Imagine Pia crowning you Miss Universe—so epic!
