Gorgeous dress, high heels, stylish shades — all these may seem to belong to the younger generation, but one 80-year-old granny from Chongqing wears them better.
When the old woman visited her grand-niece, surnamed Lin, who lives in Shenyang, she was surprised to find out that Lin had prepared a special gift for her favorite grand-aunt, Xinhua reports.
For her grand-aunt, Lin had booked a photo shoot and painstakingly selected seven different styles for the old lady to rock. In addition to some hot dresses and accessories, Lin even arranged for the old woman to wear some high heels. Lin told reporters that she was afraid that her grand-aunt might not able to hold up in a pair of 10 cm high heels, so she asked that she only be made to wear them for a few photo sets. However, the old lady insisted on wearing high heels the whole time, to achieve a better effect.
Additionally, the makeup artist didn’t try to cover up any of her wrinkles, preferring the natural look instead.
Lin told reporters that her grand-aunt actually enjoys taking lots of pictures and has the spirit of a much younger person. While some people thought that the old woman would soon get worn out, she only grew more excited as things went on and they didn’t finish snapping photos until 9 p.m. Later, Lin asked her grand-aunt if she felt exhausted from all the excitement. “I’m not tired at all, it’s all a lot of fun,” the elderly lady responded.
Whether hip-hop, traditional Chinese or Western style, the old lady couldn’t help but look absolutely fabulous.
Her chic pics went viral on the Chinese internet last week. She is just one of many Chinese grandparents that are out to prove that age is just a number, and fashion is nothing but an attitude.
