So common sense tells us that there never was an opening
for a Nefertiti figure, a vacuum for a Nefertiti type to fill, and
nobody who had power like Tiye did was going to allow
anyone else to take it from her anyway.
As for physical evidence, the famous bust of Nefertiti, for
example, doesn't depict a young beauty at all, but a
mature, wrinkled woman. Yes, she's got wrinkles!
Here are five high-res photos of Nefertiti each at a different angle:

How in the world do you find wrinkles on that face?

I didn't. I've never been within 10 feet of the original.

The wrinkles were actually high profile, winning lots of
coverage at the time. I'm surprised you're even asking
about it.

You could have answered your own question using
Google in less time than it took you to post...
