Grandfather hits the big time after modelling women's clothes online
You're never too old for a bit of modelling, cross-dressing or even some Gangnam Style posing.
When Chinese grandfather Liu Xianping was jokingly asked to wear outfits designed by his granddaughter, Lv Ting, for a fashion shoot, he thought he was doing nothing more than helping her store.
Little did the 72-year-old realise that photos of him in women’s clothing would go viral overnight.
It may have begun as a joke, but the publicity caused a fivefold increase in sales of her Yuekou label.
Nothing seems to faze him as he strikes poses wearing miniskirts, tights, lace, capes and scarves.
Countering criticism, Mr Liu said: ‘Why is it unacceptable for someone like me to wear women’s clothes?
'Modelling 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.’
Miss Ting said: ‘We thought it was fun so we started shooting.’
Weighing just 50kg (7st 12lb), Mr Lui’s slender figure and long legs certainly do justice to his granddaughter’s designs.
One online admirer wrote: ‘He has such a good figure, especially those legs.
Being Transgender or Gay is not a choice, being Transphobic or Homophobic is, so don't be a Twonk
