Waxworks of Lady Gaga are to be simultaneously unveiled in eight locations around the world, Madame Tussauds has announced.

Each figure of the pop star will be dressed in a different outfit made famous by the flamboyant singer.

The models, which will go on display next month, are being made in the same London studio at a cost of £1.2m.

"She is the perfect subject for the biggest figure launch in Madame Tussauds' history," a spokeswoman said.

Fans of the chart-topping singer will have to wait until the day of launch to discover which figure is displayed in their city.

They will be in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Madame Tussauds added that the styles chosen for the waxworks would be "classic Gaga".

Among the looks that are set to be unveiled are the singer's latex body suit with Minnie Mouse-style buns worn on a visit to BBC Radio 1.

A lace body stocking and face mask topped off with a Marie Antoinette wig, which she wore at the Brit Awards earlier this year, will be another of the looks.

But Lady Gaga's dress made from raw meat, which she wore at the MTV Video Music Video Awards in September, will not adorn any of the waxworks.
