We feel correct in saying that it would be hard to tell this is the California Gurl if it wasn’t for the bright blue bangs from the music video and public appearances. Is she in pain? Is that part of the outfit? It’s hard to tell.
The smile is limp and lifeless – like she’s putting on a smile for her fans but she isn’t really feeling it. The eyes are similarly unfocused, though the makeup looks on point. A flat chin and standard lumpy wax figurine cheeks complete the look for this knock-off pop star.
Be honest: if you didn't know who this was supposed to be, would you have figured it out? The figure is standing in a soccer goal and is wearing a footy uniform, but even that doesn't narrow it down as much as you might think.
His forehead looks like it's been sanded down, the lips look like they came off a Mr. Potato Head, and the entire face looks like he's been covering himself in a creamy clay layer. We could have told you this was almost any soccer player (except for MAYBE Pele) and you might have believed us.
What in the good gracious. Obviously, it's not like people are trying to portray this axis leader's strong chin and baby blue eyes, but it looks like all the air's been let out of his face! Or, like, someone decided to give the poor guy a shave and sneezed in the middle of it.
Plus, even if he didn't have all that, it STILL doesn't look anything like Mussolini. It looks a little bit more like Sean Connery pulling a turn as a Bond villain for a different Bond. That would be pretty fun. Alas, we lost the chance.
It's hard to get unique beauty right, which is why the wax figurine of Selma Hayek looks the way it does. Either that or there's more than one famous Selma Hayek. There's certainly an aspect of Hayek's famous Latin features, but other than that it's hard to find anything that looks correct.
The nose is sharper than a hatchet, the jaw and cheeks are whittled down, and the forehead is far too big. The hairline is lofty (and lacks Hayek's ever-present part). Granted, this could be an outfit from a role, but there are still lots of ways they could have improved this example.
As the world's second most-famous Kylie, Minogue is also the highest-selling female Australian artist of all time. Kylie's look has changed over the decades she's been active, but we don't think she ever looked like this wax figure is trying to tell us she did.
Beyond that fact, there's definitely something off about this face. The eyes, while sparkling, have a little too much color – at the same time, the face is far too pale. It kind of looks like the figure has been biting its lower lip. There's also the wig situation, which we aren't going to address right now because we only have so much time and so many words in the English vocabulary.
