Lyn has always been into fashion and loves dressing up in edgy outfits. One day she was supposed to meet a friend for lunch outside the Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week. The place was packed with photographers and journalists and suddenly, all cameras turned to Lyn and they started photographing her assuming she’s a fashion icon.
