Madame Tussauds in New York has unveiled a wax figure of Michelle Obama in a one-shouldered white gown inspired by the one she wore to the inaugural ball.

The first lady's likeness joined a wax tuxedo-clad President Barack Obama on Tuesday. His figure was unveiled at the museum last year.

In about two weeks, the Obama wax figures will exchange their formal wear for everyday wear.

The museum says Michelle Obama will be clad in a mint green J. Crew skirt and an embellished cream cardigan. The president will get a business suit.

The museum's Washington, D.C., and London sites also feature the first couple. But New York is the only location to show them in the inaugural attire.

The first lady's real gown was designed by New York designer Jason Wu.
