All eight Lady Gaga wax figures were unveiled at once, with each Madame Tussauds tableau revealing a different portrayal of Lady Gaga. Additional foreign cities to see the garments that this rock star inhabits include London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

“A team of expert artists then accurately recreated color and skin tones, replicating every freckle, mole and dimple,” she adds (we won’t comment on Lady Gaga’s skin!), “before the make-up, artists, hairdressers and stylists finished off the variety of looks.”
The painstaking process took four months to complete at a cost of more than $300,000 per figure, adding up to grand total of $2.4 million for all eight figures. And that’s in 2010 dollars, they year they were installed to commemorate Lady Gaga’s win as Billboard’s Artist of the Year.
