Since 2014, Zoe Tay has been immortalised with a wax figure at the popular Madame Tussauds gallery in Singapore, along with some of our biggest stars like JJ Lin, Stefanie Sun and the late Huang Wenyong.

Then, she was dressed in the strapless canary yellow Gucci gown she wore to the Star Awards in 2013. A few days ago, her wax figure underwent a makeover and is now clad in the sexy black Versace outfit from last year’s Star Search Finals.

The 52-year-old announced the costume change on Instagram yesterday (Oct 22).

“Madame Tussauds contacted me to give my wax figure a new look, and we went along with this classic, timeless look. I was elated to see myself again,” Zoe wrote in her caption. “I remember the moment I saw my custom-made wax figure six years ago — I couldn’t believe that I had made it to Madame Tussauds’s list of celebrities.

Ah Jie then went on to share her experience with the museum’s latest attraction, “Behind The Magic”, a 90-minute workshop where visitors go behind the scenes with wax artists and try their hand at wax shaping, oil painting and hair insertion.

“I remember the sitting very clearly and how meticulous the wax making process was. It was a great surprise that I actually could get my hands on a small bit of the process of making a wax figure. It was unreal to see how hairs are actually inserted, it was definitely an eye-opening experience!” Zoe said in a press release.
