Michelle Obama Wax Figure

Michelle Obama certainly has a nice glow about her, doesn't she?

Perhaps that's because you're looking at the first wax likeness of the first lady, which was unveiled at the Washington, D.C., branch of Madame Tussauds earlier today. Unlike some of the other stars in the museum who posed for their figure, the statue was created based entirely on images of President Barack Obama's wife.

While she is only the third first lady to receive such a tribute—Jacqueline Kennedy and Hillary Clinton are the others—the commander in chief is the first person to have a wax figure in all eight Madame Tussauds locations worldwide. Quite an honor, to be sure!

Now our fingers are crossed for the faux-fun of seeing Sasha and Malia get the wax treatment.

See if you can tell these Celebrity Dummies from the real deals!
