Richard Branson Loses a Bet, Dresses Like a Lady

Yahoo Celebrity

On Sunday, Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson dressed up as a female flight attendant, rocking a bright red pencil skirt and blazer, fishnet stockings, red patent leather flats and a face full of makeup, including false eyelashes and a bold red lip. The female ensemble was the hilarious result of a lost bet to Tony Fernandes, Air-Asia's group chief, over whose Formula One racing team would win the 2010 Abu Dhabi race.

The billionaire made good on the bet, chatting with passengers, making announcements over the intercom, and even serving drinks, all the while in drag for the six-hour flight from Australia to Malaysia. Richard Branson may be a super-unattractive woman, but we have to say, we love a man of his word!

And Richard had some fun of his own, getting back at his betting mate, Tony. Check out the vid to hear how he got even!
