Madame Tussauds just added another big star to its repertoire of celebrity wax figures.

The museum unveiled its first-ever Priyanka Chopra Jonas wax figure in New York City this week. The actress was on hand for the reveal and posed with her figure, which will also launch in London, Sydney and Asia later this year.

Chopra Jonas, 36, worked closely with Madame Tussauds artists, including a private session inside her New York City apartment, choosing to recreate her 2016 Emmy Awards look with a stunning custom red gown by Jason Wu.

And of course, the figure wouldn’t be complete without some very important bling: a replica of the star’s diamond ring from her nuptials to Nick Jonas.

The Quantico alum and Jonas, 26, held a Western wedding at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur on Dec. 1. The next day, they wed again in a Hindu ceremony at the palace.

Before the wedding, the bride and groom held a colorful Mehendi ceremony, where they both had elaborate henna designs applied to their hands, and celebrated with a Sangeet, an over-the-top party with performances in honor of the couple.

“I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up,” Chopra told PEOPLE exclusively. “We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalized them in a way that made sense for us. It’s been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.”
