He might be one of the most powerful men in the world, but Sir Richard Branson was the brunt of a thousand jokes a few days ago as he donned a skirt and a full face of make-up on a flight to Malaysia.
The billionaire entrepreneur swapped his boxer shorts for a pair of stockings after losing a Grand Prix bet with AirAsia chief executive Tony Fernandez two years ago.
The Virgin boss – who even shaved his legs for the flight – served drinks and pledged to clean the toilets on the special flight – all while sporting the red AirAsia uniform, which included a skirt suit and crisp white shirt.
All for a good cause of course. The funds from the flight went to the Starlight Foundation for ill children. It’s nice to see the best of them willing to go through great lengths for a good cause. Hear! Hear! Sir Branson! You look FABULOUS!
‘I’ve done some outrageous things in my time but this will be up there with the best of them,’ Branson added before he boarded. ‘I’ve just got to practice walking in high heels first’. –Sir Richard Branson.
