According to an interview with Ms. Lv, it all started when one day her grandpa Liu came to help with unpacking: “He picked up one piece and tried to give some advice on how to mix and match. We thought it was fun so we started shooting.” Who said elderly men in China didn’t have a sense of fashion? According to Ms. Lv, many of the looks in the pictures were her grandpa’s ideas – he surely knows how to make teen girls look cute and stylish.
What does hot grandpa think? “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. We were very happy on the day of the shooting. I’m very old and all that I care about is to be happy,” Liu told the journalist. And he was absolutely right. The store’s sales have increased 5 times since his pictures went viral and there was even a special “grandpa promotion style” currently featured at the store. Reactions from Chinese netizens have been overwhelmingly positive – they thought Liu was cool, open-minded, fun, extremely stylish and had the perfect camera face.“
