Painter Lisa Burton poses for pictures with a new waxwork figure of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II at Madame Tussauds in London on May 14, 2012. The figure is dressed in a recreation of the white and silver lace dress covered in 53,000 Swarovski elements with blue silk sash adorned with The Queen's Garter Badge, topped off by a replica of the diamond and pearl George IV State Diadem.
