His granddaughter, who owns a girl teen fashion store, said that her grandfather, Liu Xianping, first began putting on her merchandises as a joke but got surprised when they found out that his photos went viral.

The images of an elderly man in bright pink capes, striped tights and over the knee socks, with plenty of lace, ribbon and frippery have been widely circulated overnight. As a result, the shop's sales have increased fivefold. 

According to some fashion gurus, his long slim legs and slender physique accentuate the clothing line features, according to the Daily Mail.

``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,'' Liu said.
