Rihanna is the latest famous face to have a waxwork made in her honour.

The replica of the We Found Love singer was unveiled at London’s Madame Tussauds museum yesterday.

A Madame Tussauds spokesperson said: "We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to Madame Tussauds London. Her inclusion couldn't be more timely as her Loud tour arrives in the capital this week.

"Rihanna is one of the biggest music stars of the moment and is a perfect addition to the 'diva dream team' of female artists we have here at the attraction."

The model, which cost £150,000 to create and took four months to finish, wears the same long black dress – with a slit up to her waist – that Rihanna rocked when she sang her duet with last year’s X Factor winner Matt Cardle.

The Barbadian's waxwork also sports a fiery red mop of curls and bright pink make up.

Wax artists worked to make her as lifelike as possible, replicating her many tattoos.

Another waxwork of the Umbrella star went on display in Berlin in August.

The singer’s UK shows begin tomorrow (October 5) at the O2 Arena, where Calvin Harris is also on the bill.
