Ahead of this Sunday night’s Oscars, Best Actor nominee George Clooney is getting a make-over.

Madame Tussauds’ in London is updating Clooney's wax figure to ensure that he looks dapper for future visitors.

The star's waxwork double will be swapping its usual dark suit for a black and white Hawaiian shirt in recognition of his Honolulu-based character Matt King in The Descendants.

Hair stylist Gemma Sim and colourist Gemma Fee have also updated his hair to reflect his current "silver fox" look.

Clooney has previously won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Syriana and it could be third time lucky for the Best Actor award following previous nominations for Michael Clayton and Up in the Air.
