Elderly Chinese man becomes fashion sensation; Liu Xianping, 72, models teen-girl clothing with flair
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Liu Xianping found that he had the perfect figure for fashion after he began modeling for granddaughter, the owner of fashion boutique for girls.
He's thin. He's got style. He's 72 years old.
Liu Xianping has become an international sensation after his granddaughter decided her would make the perfect model for her ladies clothing shop.
His granddaughter, known as Ms. Lv, told China Newsweek that her grandfather had come to help her unpack some ladies clothing -- and had some ideas of his own.
“He picked up one piece and tried to give some advice on how to mix and match," she said. "We thought it was fun so we started shooting.”
Liu models dresses, skirts, tights and handbags, all while striking poses that are straight out of Vogue.
The foxy grandpa says he's just happy to help his granddaughter with her business -- which has quintupled in sales since he began modeling her fashions.
“Why unacceptable (for someone like me to wear women’s clothes ? Modeling for the store is helping my granddaughter and I have nothing to lose," he said "I’m very old and all that I care about is to be happy."
