Gwen Stefani Speechless over Her 'Crazy' Realistic Wax Statue

Looks like Gwen Stefani really took her song “Don’t Speak” to heart on Wednesday. Or was that the wax figurine of her exact likeness that didn’t speak? It may be a little more difficult to tell who the real No Doubt singer is and who has been immortalized in wax. Stefani, 40, was in Las Vegas Wednesday as her body double was unveiled at the Venetian hotel’s Madame Tussauds. And when the curtain dropped revealing a midriff-baring Stefani to the real Stefani, the songstress said, “That is so me.” For several minutes the mother-of-two stood in awe at her wax statue, touching its abs, staring into the eyes and putting her arm around the figure. “That is so weird,” she told her friends. “I can’t believe it. Can you believe it?” The figure is said to have taken over 500 hours to sculpt and mold and reportedly cost $300,000 to make. “That is crazy,” Stefani said while viewing the statue, six months after sitting down with sculptors for measurements in London. Madame Tussauds organizers said the Stefani was consistently one of the most requested wax figures that customers wanted to see. –Mark Gray

Gwen Stefani (the real one) has never looked better! I can’t believe she is 40. She gets better with age.

The wax figurine is amazing. Great job done by the creators of this exact replica of Gwen.

Wow, I love her new wax figure, it looks great!

I saw No Doubt last year in concert, wearing this outfit (I don’t remember the neon green bra though). Her abs are to die for!

Yay!!;) Gwen has deserved this for quite some time, now!! After all, Kim Kardashian got one, LOL!!! I’m NOT a hater, but I definitely think you should prove you have some TALENT before you get a wax figure or a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame!!!! I love, love, love Gwen!!! :) …..and remind me again, what EXACTLY is Paris Hilton’s talent???!!!! Oh, yeah, nothing!:( …..LMAO!! (UNLESS you consider “partying” a talent!!!)

Kim on

Wow, that’s amazing!

She seems like a nice enough person, but boy is she ever IMMATURE! That “Bananas” video is ridiculous — watching her prancing around like she’s in high school. She needs to learn how to make age-appropriate songs and videos. I know she’s attractive and all, but seriously grow up.

She looks a bit sickly; way too thin and pale.
