Granddad Who Models Women's Clothes

Rocking the Frock

Your granddad ever embarrass you with tall tales of trekking miles through waist-high snow drifts en route to school? Well, imagine if he paraded around in women's clothing? Liu Xianping models ladies fashions for his granddaughter's online clothing store. He's 72.

"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," said Liu.

According to an article in Gawker, Liu's "modelling career" started when he held up an article of clothing and chimed in with his advice on how it should look. The camera started rolling, and hasn't stopped.

So the next time your granddad wants to wax lyrical about the good olden days, indulge him. After all, it could be worse. He could be wearing one of your skirts and a pair of your sheer stockings.

Liu, you carry on rocking the frock in the name of family!
