Mistaken Identity Turned An Unknown Teacher Into A Fashion Icon.

Fordham University professor Lyn Slater’s story recently went viral after millions of people stared in awe as this gorgeous 63-year-old flaunted her incredible looks in a series of photoshoots that could easily belong in Vogue. And if you thought you were looking at photos of a model/fashionista icon strut her stuff in the streets while attending her business, you’re not alone. Lyn was accidentally photographed by a group of spectators and journalists when she was walking about, minding her own business, as they believed they had spotted a celebrity. Ironically enough, those photos ended up changing her life and catapulting herself, her immaculate fashion sense, and outfits to fame. She’s now working with Elite models, and managing a blog that gets as much traffic as she gets stares.

In the beginning, it almost felt like an identity crisis for gorgeous Lyn.

The Fordham University professor would’ve never imagined that dressing the part (and then some!) could skyrocket one’s career as much as it did. Especially when being a model and blogger wasn’t exactly her job or career at the time!

At 63 years old, Lyn is definitely confident in her body, and her attitude seeps through every pore.

She’s not admired solely due to having the financial freedom to purchase expensive clothing, or having enough fashion sense to choose avant-garde and edgy clothes, which is really hard to do, to be honest. Good taste is innate, but confidence is what sells the garment. Confident is what makes thousands admire this gorgeous woman. Just seeing her pose makes you wonder if she was a supermodel in another life.

Well, sort of. See, she had put on an outfit that would make Andy Warhol, Mark Jacobs and Tom Ford give her a standing ovation. She epitomized art, fashion, and looked so on fleek while she waited to meet a friend at the Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week.
