July 20 (UPI) -- Fans gathered this week to see Kylie Jenner's wax figure unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Los Angeles.

The 19-year-old reality star was honored with a statue Tuesday at the museum's Hollywood location. Jenner confirmed her figure sports the silver Balmain dress she wore to the 2016 Met Gala.

Jenner had shared several posts, including a photo of a paint palette, while posing for the figure in February. She responded on Snapchat after critics accused her of darkening the skin tone for her statue.

"I'm not trying to make my wax figure darker than I am, you [expletive] idiots," the star said.

"They were mixing all those colors on a palette, not me. Stop reaching," she added. "I don't even have a say in this, so leave it to the professionals, people!"

Music superstar Beyoncé also made headlines for her wax figure this week after her statue was moved to Madame Tussauds in New York. Fans said the figure looks nothing like the singer and accused the museum of lightening the star's skin tone.
