Rihanna is the latest celebrity to be immortalized in a waxwork by Madame Tussauds.

Museum bosses erected a body double of the Umbrella singer wearing a black lace corset, fitted jacket, pants and black silk heels in their Washington, D.C. location on Tuesday morning.

Rihanna was not on hand for the big reveal, but a spokesperson for the museum confirms the star got a sneak peek last week, and gave her final approval, telling People.com Rihanna “absolutely loved” her look-a-like.

The singer follows Glee star Jane Lynch and Michael Jackson as the museum’s most recent waxwork honoree.
