Karlie Kloss and Ryan Lochte BFF’s forever

They’re like a match made in genetical heaven. She’s one of the top models in the world, signed to Next models and walking runways for the likes of Christian Dior, Zac Posen and Diane Von Furstenberg. He’s a super-fit Olympic champion. And they’re best friends.

That’s right, American swimmer Ryan Lochte and face of Juicy Couture Karlie Kloss are like totes BFFs forever, y’all. Explaining their meeting Karlie told Style.com, ‘It was in Miami, where we did the shoot, and we went out to dinner one night.’ Seems pretty standard to us.

And it seems Karlie is so enamored with her new mate that she’s even ready to support him should he release his own fashion line (this could actually happen: Ryan has appaz been inundated with offers since the games ended last week), she said, 'Even though I am 20 and already have a career, I realize it is important to have normal friends and I think he is the same way. He is just a normal guy. He was really interested in fashion, actually; he wants to have his own line. I was surprised by how in the know he was,’ adding, ‘I will walk in his show for sure.’ Lucky Ryan eh?!

Maybe she feels guilty for missing him at the Olympics? Karlie revealed that despite having planned to hot-foot it over to Britain she never made it, ‘I was supposed to go to London to watch him in the Olympics, but I didn’t make it, so I was rooting for him—and all of the Olympians I met on the shoot—from Denmark. I was texting with Ryan, though—such a sweet guy. We Leos are crazy!,’ she said. We don’t really know what she means about Leos but oh well, there’s always Brazil Karls.
