Ryan Lochte in NYC for Fashion Week

Actor Kellan Lutz, U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte and actor Daniel Gillies attend the Joseph Abboud spring 2013 fashion show.

“Jeah!”

Do you really think a diamond grill-wearing, shoe-designing, magazine cover-gracing Olympian would miss out on the world’s premier week in fashion?

Swimmer-turned-celebrity Ryan Lochte is in New York City to take in everything Fashion Week has to offer and do a little reporting for E! while he’s at it. He was spotted in the front row of the Joseph Abboud menswear show at the New York Public Library last night.

He later attended an party for the opening of opening of designer Brian Atwood’s new Madison Avenue shoe store. Lochte mingled with the likes of Kim Kardashian.

The self-proclaimed fashion lover is also set to film a cameo appearance for the hit show “30 Rock” today. Lochte told New York Magazine that he will also be a guest on “Live! With Kelly and Michael!”
 
Lochte has dabbled in designing himself, collaborating with Speedo on a pair of shoes he’s been spotted wearing around the pool. He’s famous for the diamond-studded grill he often wears to celebrate his coveted wins.

He appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair before the 2012 London Olympics and told the magazine that his real dream is to become a clothing designer.

Since winning gold in London, Lochte has continued to make sure he is front and center in pop culture as he reportedly mulls over several offers for reality television, including “The Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars.”
