Ryan Lochte's first taste of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week appeared to go quite swimmingly.
The Olympic gold medalist scored a front-row seat next to Twilight stud Kellan Lutz today at Joseph Abboud's spring 2013 show at the New York Public Library.
The eight-day whirlwind of high fashion, parties and celeb-watching doesn't officially kick off until tomorrow, but try telling Lutz and Lochte, who appeared to be studiously studying the menswear that came down the runway.
Then again, Lochte may also have just been sitting there wondering, "Hey, where are all the girl models?!"
Zero Dark Thirty actor Frank Grillo and Vampire Diaries cutie Daniel Gillies, both of them dressed to the nines as well, shared the front row with Lochte, Lutz and some other lucky spectators.
