OMG: Journalists Accidentally Confuse A 63-Year-Old Teacher With A Fashion Icon

At 63 years old, Lyn Slater is not exactly a typical haute couture model, but that’s part of her appeal. She decries age-based discrimination in both the fashion industry and in everyday life, including the tired notion of ‘dressing for one’s age.’ “I think, if you are comfortable in what you’re wearing, no matter how old you are and you’re owning it, you’re going to look completely fine,” Slater told Refinery29 in a 2016 interview. She is currently signed to Elite London, the world’s leading modeling company, and has worked with brands such as Mango and Uniqlo.
