Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is the first Pinay to get her own wax figure in Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.

Pia Wurtzbach is now a Madame Tussauds wax figure.

The unveiling happened earlier today, March 28.

Pia's wax figure is a spitting image of herself during her final walk as Miss Universe back in January 2017.

It dons a replica of the memorable royal blue Michael Cinco ball gown, which the designer himself made.

It also holds up the Mikimoto crown that Pia passed on to French beauty queen Iris Mittenaere when she was hailed Miss Universe 2016.

During the unveiling, Pia wore the same blue gown, and made sure to take a selfie with her wax figure.

She captioned, "This couldn't be more perfect for #ThrowbackThursday!

"Feels like I’m reliving my crowning moment back in 2015!

"It's surreal to see my wax figure in the flesh...and I'm really really honored to be the first Filipino to be part of Madame Tussauds!

"Dedicating this to my family, loved ones, and to all Filipinos! Maraming salamat sa suporta all these years."


On Pia's 29th birthday last year in September, the beauty queen announced that she will be getting her own wax figure at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.

She is the first Pinay to join over 100 wax figures of famous people—Brad Pitt, Princess Diana, Madonna, to name a few—in the popular wax museum.
