San Francisco, California: Zendaya returned to the Bay Area on the eve of her American Music Awards appearance this afternoon to unveil two brand new wax figures from Madame Tussauds. Styled to reflect Zendaya’s appearances at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards and 2014 BMI Hip Hop R&B Awards, one figure will remain in Madame Tussauds San Francisco, while the other will be featured at Madame Tussauds Orlando.
Zendaya is best known for her starring role as K.C. Cooper in Disney Channels’ K.C. Undercover, and for the platinum single hit off her 2013 self-titled debut album, “Replay”. She is currently working on her second studio album.
With a strong belief in body positivity and individual beauty, Zendaya’s impeccable style and confidence has won her wide appeal among teens and young adults. With the launch of her figures, she has joined an exclusive group of celebrities whose figures are a result of extensive requests from fans eager to see their favorite stars immortalized in wax.
“This is a major, major honor and it’s so cool to have it in the Bay where I’m from,” said Zendaya of the reveal. “This is the best trip ever. I get to be home and be with my people…and also my twins!”
