Underwood Sees New Wax Figure Of Herself In NY

By  | 

Country music star Carrie Underwood now has a double.

Underwood visited Madame Tussauds in New York on Thursday to help unveil a wax figure of herself. The 25-year-old Checotah, Okla., native posed for pictures beside the likeness, which will be added to the museum's "VIP Room."

The wax figure depicts Underwood standing with her hands on her hips and wearing a short, sparkly pink dress, which she wore to the 2006 Country Music Association Awards show. Underwood received her first CMA female vocalist of the year award that year, and picked it up again in 2007.

Underwood donated a replica of the dress to Madame Tussauds. A team of wax artists worked on the Underwood likeness earlier this year after she modeled for it.

"It was mainly just a couple of people met us out on the road and like did a lot of measurements, a lot of picture taking," she told The Oklahoman. "I had to stand still for a long time while they did their thing."
