Olympic swimmerstood out from the crowd as he recently sported his own green and yellow high-tops at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team Trials last month in Omaha, Nebraska.
Most of us know Lochte for his swimming triumphs like the five gold medals he pulled off last summer at the FINA World Championships in Shanghai, China and posed with proudly on his birthday August 3rd! But did you know that Ryan is also quite stylish in his own right?
Yes, Ryan Lochte is quite the fashionista – one look at his shoe wardrobe alone, a peek at which was provided during his recent interview with– he loves fashion and designing clothes and has designed his own shoe collection!
That is, Ryan Lochte’s snazzy metallic Speedo shoes which will fit right into fashion trends right around the corner for 2013 which feature a lot of metallic pieces for men by designing houses like Burberry to Roberto Cavalli!
And you can catch him poolside in a myriad of stylish trunks by Speedo including a rather splashy pair of violet, coral and neon yellow trunks he wore in London yesterday July 25, 2012 at the Aquatics Centre in Olympic Park, standing next to Australian swimmer, or in the floral pair the day before…
Ryan was also seen sporting a Speedo I heart BREAST T-shirt, no doubt in support of both the breast stroke and women’s causes.
But what about Lochte out of aquatic centers? The 27-year-old swimmer is quite the snazzy dresser when not in a pair of swimming trunks and favors stylish touches such as camouflage bottoms, a square-studded belt and a fedora.
Attending the 2011 Golden Goggles at JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE on November 20, 2011 in Los Angeles, California, where he received his Male Athlete Of The Year and Male Performance of the Year awards, Ryan Lochte wore a crisp white tuxedo jacket which showcased his swimmer’s tan, dressing up the look with a spotted black and white scarf. Mom Ileana also wore spots on her LBD (little black dress) sleeves.
The previous year, Ryan Lochte wore the most unusual black tuxedo with studded lapels at the 7th Annual Golden Goggle Awards in New York City, picking up his Men's Race of the Year award.
And Ryan Lochte is no stranger to the fashion world, having made the rounds of several fashion weeks, attending shows for designers Tommy Hilfiger, Chris Han and Max Azria.
Lochte’s also known for his diamond mouthpiece, a diamond grill with two flashing rows of diamonds, which at first sight may seem to some like an orthodontic treatment but nevertheless makes quite the fashion statement. Ryan Lochte – the man with the diamond smile!
Ryan was also featured in the June 2012 Vogue issue where he posed with model Karly Kloss. And you could say that Lochte is a model in his own right, being featured in ads for Gillette, Gatorade and AT&T and on the covers of magazines like Men’s Journal and Men’s Health…
But no doubt, Ryan Lochte looks his best in his (somewhat controversial) Team USA 2012 Olympics uniform designed by but made in China.
The London Olympics Opening ceremony will be held tomorrow night July 27, 2012. Here’s wishing Ryan Lochte all the luck and every success at the London Olympics. Enjoy the slideshow of Ryan Lochte’s style…
