PHOTOS: Olympians Hit The Red Carpet For The Expendables 2
Last night in California, Olympic champions fresh off the plane from London joined action movie stars and a slew of C- and D-list celebs for the Los Angeles premiere of The Expendables 2.
Though athletes Danielle Scott-Arruda, Jessica Steffens, and Brenda Villa all sported their gold medals on the red carpet much as some stars might wear Van Cleef & Arpels or Harry Winston, grill-loving swimmer Ryan Lochte eschewed the two golds he won at this year’s Games in favor of a simple chain. He also looked substantially dressier than in his previous red carpet appearance, opting for a black sweater, shiny nylon jacket and matching pants. Wonder if the all-black ensemble is his way of setting the stage for his inevitable entrée to the fashion industry? In any case, lookin’ good, Lochte.
What do you think — did any of the athletes rival their competitors as best-dressed Olympian on the red carpet?
UPDATE: It’s unclear if Lochte’s ensemble is made up of pants, a sweater, and matching vest, or if the vest is actually just part of a mixed texture jacket. Thoughts?
