Ryan Lochte took time out from his busy schedule of racing Prince Harry in a Vegas pool, mumbling on camera and courting Miss USA to rub shoulders with some of fashion’s elite.
According to Page Six, the Olympic swimmer recently had dinner with a “gaggle” of Vogue editors at the Lion in NYC, before leaving to meet designer Richard Chai for drinks.
It’s no secret that Lochte wants to get into the biz–he’s an aspiring fashion designer, don’t you know–and ever since he won the gold at the Olympics, he’s been steadfastly increasing his fashion profile.
Could he have been meeting with the Voguettes to ask for advice on his new line? Or perhaps they’re collaborating on a new feature for the magazine. After all, he and Anna Wintour are basically already best friends. Then again, maybe a Richard Chai-Ryan Lochte collaboration is in the works. So many awesome possibilities…
What do you think their dinner meant?
