|Regret that bet?|
Last weekend, the 62yr.old billionaire entrepreneur donned a skirt and a full face of make-up on a public flight to Malaysia.
Branson had lost a bet with fellow airline owner, AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandez, two years ago. He'd put off fulfilling the bet until now, due to his heavy work schedule but, true to his word, he donned a hostie uniform and wig and carried out the responsibilities of a flight attendant.
The funds from the flight went to the Starlight Foundation for ill children, but as to how far Sir Richard would go for charity...? He said he'd keep his famous beard. However, he did shave his legs for the flight, served drinks and pledged to clean the toilets onboard, all while sporting the red AirAsia uniform.
Pulling his blonde locks back into clips, Branson completed his fresh new look with a sweep of red lipstick and a fetching set of false eyelashes: "Have you not seen a stewardess with a beard before?" Branson laughed: "I've done some outrageous things in my time but this will be up there with the best of 'em! I had to practice walking in high heels first!"
