Some people dream of being famous and being followed around by cameras trying to catch their every move.
Most of us like our quiet lives, but others were really born for the spotlight. Fordham University professor Lyn Slater is a little bit of both. Slater was out for lunch with some of her friends during New York Fashion Week, and what happened next changed her life forever.
Slater was suddenly surrounded by journalists from outside the U.S. who thought she was a different person completely — a fashion icon.
Slater is totally fashion forward and stylish, so she dubbed herself the Accidental Icon online. She has more than 175,000 followers on Instagram.
