It’s been 22 years since the death of the late Selena Quintanilla, and on Friday the “Queen of Tejano” was honored with a wax figure at Madame Tussauds New York.

The wax figure of the ‘Queen of Tejano’ is the latest addition to the New York collection. The figure is an exact replica of the one that made its debut at Madame Tussauds Hollywood in August.

Suzette Quintanilla, Selena’s sister, said they chose the outfit because the bustier was an iconic staple in Selena’s wardrobe.

“I thought this was awesome. What an honor and what a great way to have her here and to represent Latinos,” Quintanilla told NBC News. “They could have chosen anyone; the fact that they chose Selena, I think, it speaks volumes. She’s definitely a legend.”
