Have Beyoncé’s wax figure makers ever actually seen Beyoncé?
3:45 p.m. ― In response to critics, Madame Tussauds defended the work of its wax sculptors Wednesday afternoon and offered up an explanation for the appearance of one of its Beyoncé figures. Fans of the pop star had suggested she appeared too pale at the museum, dressed in a sparkly blue outfit.
Madame Tussauds said in a statement provided to The Wrap:
At Madame Tussauds, our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately color match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted. Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the color of our wax figures which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage.Real Housewives star Joanna Krupa finalizes her divorce from Romain Zago
Beyoncé is one of the most recognizable women in the world ― she’s covered countless magazines, appeared in plenty of music videos and shared tons of photos of herself on social media.

Michelle Lee, editor-in-chief of Allure, shared a pretty convincing theory as to why over Twitter on Tuesday night:
Seriously, what is going on there? Not one of those wax figures look like the Beyoncé we all know and love. We’d even argue the blonde one, which appears to be located at the Madame Tussauds wax museum in Orlando, looks more like a weird cross between Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.
