La madame

I'm originally from France
But I never really stayed there
You can find me in Las Vegas
You can find me in Times Square
I have my own private island
Though I really am not that shy
I even let people visit
But do you know: Who am I?

Hints

Hint 1:

I've aged very little, but I've changed so much.

Hint 2:

Some may say that I have thin skin, but I am not hurt by any insults.

Hint 3:

I'm imitated by many, though the impostors just don't size up.

Hint 4:

In fact, the impostors simply don't hold a torch to me.

Hint 5:

I wear a crown, yet I am not royalty.
