As fashion icon, BFF with Elton John and international swan, this lady is Houston's best ambassador
Just home from New York where she attended the Princess Grace Foundation board meeting as a founding trustee, she was able to catch a performance of Tristan & Isolde at Houston Grand Opera for which she has served as executive committee vice chair for more than 25 years. And today she's finalizing plans for two summer visits with Sir Elton John (her best friend) at his home in England. There are so many reasons why Lynn Wyatt can't think of being anyone else other than Lynn Wyatt.
"I love my life," she responded, declining to even consider being anyone else.
Lynn is on a first name basis with Oscar de la Renta, Karl Lagerfeld and Carolina Herrera, no surprise for this International Best Dressed honoree and fashion icon. Her houseguests have included Placido Domingo, Mick Jagger, Liza Minnelli and Elton (who composed a song just for her). She counts among her close friends Andrew Lloyd Webber and Renee Fleming. Through her years as Houston's leading hostess, Wyatt has entertained these big names as well as presidents, stars and numerous European royals.
In fact, Houston could not have a better ambassador. The French long ago recognized her cultural and philanthropic leadership and her international savoir faire, naming her an officier of the French Legion of Honor.
While Wyatt travels frequently, this third generation Houstonian has never faltered in her appreciation of the city or her participation in its cultural milieu. Among her active involvements, she serves on the executive committees of the Alley Theatre and Houston Ballet. She is a lifetime trustee of Star of Hope and a founding trustee of the Museum of Fine Arts Film Department.
Lynn is a glamorous fixture on the social scene, her mere presence contributing an enviable status to every event.
