A 72-year-old man in China found himself to be an internet sensation after he started modeling women’s clothes from his granddaughter’s online store for fun.

Accessorizing himself with with a pair of aviator sunglasses, Liu Xianping pulled off the clothing—designed for teenage girls—with much panache.

A refreshing change from the regular pretty, perfectly-groomed models typically used for fashion shoots, people are responding exceptionally well to this cool, “drag-queen” grandfather.


In Liu’s words: “Modeling for the store is helping my granddaughter and I have nothing to lose. We were very happy on the day of the shooting. I’m very old and all that I care about is to be happy.”

Since he started modeling for the web-store, sales has increased five-fold.
