Communist Party head Xi Jinping is working hard on his image as a powerful leader, but it seems many Chinese care more about what he’s wearing!
While attending the opening ceremony of the 2014 Nanjing Youth Olympic Games on August 16, Xi’s tie attracted more attention than the acrobats forming the impressive Dream Tower.
A blogger zoomed in on the photo of Xi opening the games, revealing a dark blue tie covered in cute little dolphins. The picture was shared over 21,000 times, and got more than 6,800 likes.
One netizen wrote: “I guess the First Lady picked it. Boss Xi didn’t take a second glance before putting it on!”
