As part of Chinese New Year celebrations, those at the very top of some of China’s largest corporations will be dressing up to appear as the star of the company gala. Here’s a selection of some of the best outfits from previous years.
A frequent staple at the annual gala are figures from Chinese history. Here is Giant Interactive president Shi Yuzhu’s tribute to the Jade Emperor.
And Xiaomi founder Lei Jun’s took the role of Caishen, the Chinese deity of wealth.
Netease CEO Ding Lei turned up as a “Chinese zombie” to his company’s event in 2014.
Baidu chairman Robin Li once masqueraded as Zorro back in 2012.
He also happens to be a pretty awesome drummer.
But despite the stiff competition, the man to steal the show is everyone’s favorite internet tycoon Jack Ma, who delighted audiences when he turned up in a lovely frilly dress.
Who is the fairest of them all? You decide. We just hope that 2016 will live up to expectations.
