Now that the hot swimmer guy is on the verge of becoming a hot designer guy, Ryan Lochte's really working the Fashion Week circuit—and gathering up all the industry advice he can get.

According to a report in Page Six, the Olympian was spotted shmoozing at the Sherri Hill show with 81-year-old Carmen Dell'Orefice, the world's oldest working model.

The seasoned fashion veteran (who was an Olympic swimming hopeful back in 1948!) told Lochte that intense training is just as important for models as it is for athletes.

“If you’re gonna last, you better be an athlete at home,” she said. She also told him models need “strength to walk in heels and have control of [their] body.”

Hmm... Does this mean Lochte might be modeling for his own line? We can only hope so.

In other really, really important life-changing news: Call it destiny or fate or whatever you will—as we were sitting down to write this story, lo and behold, guess who walked into StyleBistro HQ totally unexpectedly?

Ryan Lochte in the flesh and blood! No but seriously. He really did. We have proof:

Apparently he was filming something with Olympic gold medalist Conor Dwyer—the other swimmer guy in the photo. We can now die happy.

What would you do if you met Ryan Lochte? Not going to lie—we kind of giggled... A lot. Lauren might have cried a little bit. Let us know in the comments!
