Amy Winehouse‘s wacky – and waxy – likeness has now been officially immortalized, along with her tattoos.

The singer’s parents, Mitch and Janis, unveiled their daughter’s wax figure at Madame Tussauds London on Wednesday, with her father calling its likeness “perfection.”

“This is the reward for her musical achievements and her talent,” he told reporters.

The waxwork’s outfit replicates the one Winehouse wore to 2007’s Brit Awards – a bright yellow mini-dress with towering black heels.

Microphone in hand, the figure stands in the museum’s “Music Zone” among such other chart-toppers as Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Kylie Minogue.

Although the real-life Winehouse, 24, was a no-show at Wednesday’s little ceremony, her father said she plans to see the figure for herself in the next two weeks.
