A 72-year-old man from Hunan province
has become a celebrity in China modeling women's clothes.
Liu Qianping's cross-dressing antics
have taken the nation by storm.
The retired rice farmer in November
agreed to model the clothes for his granddaughter's online clothing
store, Yecoo. He's now one of China's hottest fashion models.
“This one time she got in a big
shipment of clothes,” Qianping told The Wall Street Journal.
“I pulled a few pieces out, thought they looked good and threw
them on. After I threw them on, she said: 'That's great, they look
really good.' So then, she took my picture.”
“The day after we posted them,
netizens started spreading the pictures like crazy,” said Ou
Linfang, co-founder of Yecoo. “After that, TV stations and media
from everywhere asked for interviews.”
Qianping said he gets to choose his own
“I choose my own outfits,” he said.
“They have to be colorful and look good. I like deeper, brighter
colors better. That's what I wear.” (A video report is embedded
