Fashion: How this ordinary-elderly couple became billboard celebs
Wang Lijin and Huang Caozhen were just an ordinary-elderly couple living their little known love story in Handan, Hebei, until recently when Lijin decided to make their 64th wedding anniversary special. He ordered for a fashion shoot to make his lovely wife happy.
But little they knew they would soon become celebrities in their own rights. Now, their photographs are plastered on billboards across cities as adverts for true love.
Lijin first met Caozhen, who used to work as a seamstress, in 1952 when he commissioned her to make him a new suit. Caozhen has been making her husband’s suit ever since, reports Hebei Daily.
Their special photo shoot led to a warm family get-together where Lijin thanked his “wife, mother of their children and grandmother of their grandchildren” for her love and companionship.
Also, Lijin posted those pictures on Weibo and they got noticed. Now, they are everywhere in Hebei, sharing love on billboards.
