Grandpa Style!

When 72 year old Liu Qianping went to visit his granddaughter in the Chinese city of Guangzhou, he had no idea fame would find him. His granddaughter Lu Ting, an aspiring fashion designer, was distraught over the cancellation of her model (those flaky supermodels) on the day of the photo shoot for her online business “Yue Kou”. When grandpa showed up to show his support for the clothing line, he tried on a jacket and thought it was funny. One thing led to another and he stepped in as their model.

Now his pictures have gone viral and the on line store is booming. Liu Qianping, now referred to as “MaDiGaGa”, is a star. He has received several modeling offers, and made his first TV show appearance last week.

“I never dreamed of lucky things like these happening to me. Now, my name has spread to everywhere in the country,” he said.

As for now, he is not taking any other modeling jobs but will continue to be the face of his granddaughter’s business.

I love this story, this is something my grandpa would have done to support me.
