Ryan Lochte is officially ready for Rio.

The swimmer debuted a brand-new hairstyle on Sunday as he prepared to head to the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.

“New look…. Here We Go #Rio#2016 thanks @jennjonesatl #turnup#lightblue,” Lochte wrote, showing off his more-silver-fox-than-light-blue hair on Instagram on Sunday.

Ahead of his big color reveal, Lochte teased his new look, sharing a photo of himself in full peroxide-mode in his hairstylist Jenn Jones’ chair.

Me hungry!! @jennjonesatl #newlook #dye

Lochte, 31, has a big week ahead of him. He is expected to arrive in Rio this week ahead of the Opening Ceremony, which will take place on Friday. After that, the swimming schedule kicks off with men’s and women’s heats beginning on Saturday.

(Hopefully Lochte’s swimming cap will be enough to protect his newly bleached hair from the chlorine.)

And if the new ice-blue hair is working for you (and you are still harboring your 2012 Olympics crush for Lochte) take note — the athlete revealed last week that he is currently trying his luck on Tinder.

“I’ve been matching up with a bunch of gorgeous women who are smart, they have professional jobs and everything,” he said in an interview. “I’m like, ‘Wow, this is perfect.’ So I’ve been on Tinder lately. So far I haven’t had any dates or anything. I’ve just been talking with a couple [women].”

Watch out for the next blue-haired guy you swipe left on, he might just be an Olympian.

What do you think of Lochte’s new look? Let us know below!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
