72-Year-Old Man Models Teen Clothes for His Granddaughter's Label China's Yuekou brand goes classic
The right look for your models can make or break your fashion label, which is why it's surprising that Chinese teen-girl fashion clothier Yuekou is using a 72-year-old man as the face of the brand. Turns out that Liu Xianping is the grandfather of the owner, Lv Ting. One day he picked up an outfit and tried to give Lv advice on mixing and matching, so they started shooting for fun. What came out of it was a new look for the brand, and even more surprising, a good look. Liu is an excellent model, the sort of person who truly owns whatever style he's wearing. He also has great legs. More images below.
