How To Dress Up As Ryan Lochte For Halloween #SorryNotSorry

Ryan Lochte was one of the year's top trending figures--after scoring gold medals in the Rio Olympics, Ryan pissed off an entire country when he alleged that he was held at gunpoint in Brazil when really it was his own drunken shenanigans to blame. He fled Brazil, got banned from swimming, apologized, and landed a spot on "Dancing with the Stars," which was met with protestors. Phew. It's been a *really* big fall for Lochte, which is not good for him--but very good for those of us looking for a pop culture Halloween costume this year. Olympics Halloween costumes are always big--remember the Gabby Douglas one from 2012 (hey--it's still relevant!). Need more proof that the Ryan Lochte Halloween costume is a good one? Well, first of all, Jimmy Fallon already showed how hilarious and recognizable it is when he dressed up like Lochte at the MTV Video Music Awards this month: Everyone, including Lochte's own teammate Michael Phelps was *DYING*. Jimmy hilariously started his speech, "Is it too late now to say sorry?" then launched into a hilarious series of ridiculous claims, such as "I directed all five nominees," and "I taught Drake the Hotline Bling dance." LOLZ! Anyways, if you're set on being Ryan Lochte this year, let me tell you exactly what you'll need to get a gold medal in the costume department: His hair: Lochte dyed his hair for the Olympics--some say the color is gray, some say silver, others say platinum blue (which later turned green from the pool-yikes!). Whatever color you think his Olympic hair was, you absolutely need to get it for the costume. If you're a girl being Ryan, just put your hair up in a high bun, or try to find a gray haired male wig that you can use (I wasn't able to find any good ones online, so it might be tough!). To get the color, use this Silver Ash Hair Wax 3.53 oz ($21.50) that I found on Amazon. You could also use white or silver spray-on color. READ MORE: Barb From Stranger Things Halloween Costume His Olympics track suit:  If you're taking the costume REALLY serious, like Jimmy Fallon did, you should buy some official Olympics gear from the Team USA store. This is the exact zip-up that Fallon wore to the VMAs and Lochte wore during the medals ceremonies--it's obviously pricey, but you could sell it online or give it to the guy in your life after Halloween: Men's Nike Navy Team USA Stadium Full-Zip Jacket ($249.99) On the bottom, you can just wear any exercise pants or joggers. They have lots of bottoms for men and women on the Team USA store (so you could get a navy blue one to match the zip-up jacket), or you can pull something from your closet, or you can buy something like these Nike Jogger Sweatpants ($65) that I found. READ MORE: Dauntless From Divergent Halloween Costume His swim gear:  Let's not forget that Ryan is an Olympic gold medal winning swimmer here (hah!), so to pull of the costume you'll need some accessories for the sport. Amazon literally sells Ryan LOCHTE Speedo Latex Swim Cap ($12.23), and I think it's worth grabbing one for $12--especially if you're a girl with long hair and want a way to work around the whole short hair thing (just shove your hair in the cap and you're good!). Ditto for the goggles--you'll definitely need a pair. You can buy kids goggles and wear them around your neck if you want them to be cheaper--of you can buy an adult pair that you might actually one day use to swim. These Resurge Sports Anti Fog Racing Swimming Goggles ($19.99) look profesh and like something Lochte might actually wear. READ MORE: Ghostbusters Halloween Costume If you don't like the swim cap or hair dye ideas, you could also buy a cheap Olympics Team USA hat and wear that to be Lochte instead. I found this one: DEBBIE Unisex USA Rio Olympic 2016 Baseball Caps Hat One Size ($12.78). Fallon wore the exact bright yellow Nikes that Team USA wore to the Olympics--if you want to top off the look, you could splurge on a pair, too. I mean, it's definitely something you'd wear long after Halloween/get your moneys worth out of. I found these Nike Golf FI Impact 2 ($139.99)--they're pretty cool. Or you can just wear any sneakers from your collection (keep it sporty!). This is absolutely non-negotiable--you have to get a Gold Medal with Ribbon ($1.49) to wear around your neck to make it especially clear that you're Lochte for Halloween. The medals are so cheap and are definitely one of the most distinguishing features of the costume. So, there you have it! Everything you'll need to make a Ryan Lochte Halloween costume this year. Just don't forget to go around singing "Is it too late now to say sorry?"  

Ryan Lochte Apologizes For Rio Robbery Lie–Read His Statement

ICYMI (while hopefully lying out on a beach somewhere away from all this nonsense), Ryan Lochte claimed he was robbed in Rio with a bunch of his teammates on Sunday night, August 14. There was a lot of drama surrounding this story as no one could get their facts straight. The USA and International Olympic Committees got involved, as well as the Rio police. Turns out, the 32-year-old swimmer kind of lied about the whole thing... Yeah, this drunken frat boy night is overshadowing major accomplishments, like Team USA's Ashton Eaton winning his second Olympic decathlon and the first medals sweep ever for the American track and field women. Anyway, here's Lochte's apology for his actions: Don't forget to check out: what to wear with slip-on sneakers and the best cult beauty products under $5 [Photo: Splash News]

VIDEO: Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte And The USA Olympic Swim Team Do Carpool Karaoke

Back in 2012, the USA Olympic Swim Team made this hilarious video to the year's biggest hit, "Call Me Maybe," and now there's a 2016 version for the Rio games. Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and the rest of the team did their version of Carpool Karaoke sans James Corden. And you know what, they don't need him! (But we do love you, James.) There's something for every music fan in this video: Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Zac Brown Band, even the Pokémon theme song. Yes, the Olympic swimmers are trying to catch 'em all in between practices for the biggest competition of their lives... hey, whatever helps them bring home the golds!

Meet The New ‘Fierce Five’ Gymnastics Team Heading To Rio

It's crazy to believe that four years have passed since the last summer Olympics, but here we are! At the beginning of August, we're heading to Rio, and we can't wait to see one sport in particular: gymnastics. We all remember the "Fierce Five" women who won medals for us back in London, but this time around, the team has some fresh faces. We wanted to take some time to get to know these lovely ladies before the games begin. So here we go, now introducing... Simone Biles. This 19-year-old from Columbus, Ohio will be heading to Rio as the first African-American woman to be an all-around champion AND the first woman to win three consecutive world all-around titles - woah. Make sure to check her out here and in Rio! Gabby Douglas. You will definitely recognize this familiar face from the 2012 games. Gabby, at only 20 years old, won a gold medal in London in the individual all-around (she was the first African-American woman to win that event) and in the all-around team competition. Dubbed the "flying squirrel," we're sure that Gabby will continue to make headlines this summer in Rio. Madison Kocian. This 19-year-old gymnast from Dallas, Texas is sure to do big things in Rio. She might be new to the Olympics, but this 2015 World Champion on the uneven bars can do amazing things! Look out for her in August. Laurie Hernandez. The youngest of the group, Laurie is only 16 years old - what?! This newbie to the Olympic stage was a fan of the 'Fierce Five' back in 2012 - and now she gets to be in it! Keep an eye out for her in Rio. Aly Raisman. Last but certainly not least, this 22-year-old gymnast is read for another Olympics! As the captain of the 2o12 team, Aly won gold medals in the team and floor competitions, as well as a bronze medal in the balance beam. After starring on Dancing With The Stars for season 16, Aly is ready to take on the Olympic stage again! We'll be looking out for her (and her parents!). These fabulous five women will be taking us to Rio in hopes for gold! They will be joined by alternates MyKayla Skinner, Ragan Smith and Ashton Locklear. Make sure to check them out in starting on August 5th on NBC!

Johnny Weir Is #Winning The Olympics With His Bad A$$ Outfits

In case you forgot, there's something called the Olympics going on right now in Sochi, Russia. But I really wouldn't blame you if totally forgot about it. Not only is it the wrong season where the games are taking place (52 degrees does not mean winter), but there's hardly any big-name athletes on Team U.S.A. to get excited about. Sure, everyone over there is super talented, there's no denying that, but what happened to the Michael Phelps' and Michelle Kwans of the world? There's not even someone like Ryan Lochte for comic relief. The only dude I can think at Sochi that's on the same level of fame as these names is Shaun White, and he has yet to win a medal. Which brings me to my point. The real winner of this year's games for Team U.S.A. is Johnny Weir. The former Olympic ice skater turned NBC news caster has been stealing the spotlight from all the athletes over in Sochi with his sartorial choices. From green leather Rick Owens wedges, to a seriously bomb-ass pink Chanel blazer, Johnny has been killing it with his #OOTD, which he obvi puts up on Instagram. Johnny tells Philadelphia Magazine that his personally selected attire is Hunger Games-inspired. More specifically, he wants to be the real life Caesar Flickerman (aka Stanley Tucci's character), minus the whole, you know, reporting on kids fighting to the death thing. If you haven't tuned in to his broadcast with co-anchor Tara Lipinski, you're seriously missing out. This guy is single-handedly keeping Americans watching the games. Just so we can see what crazy vintage designer item he wears next. Click the slideshow to see all of Johnny's outfits so far, and check his Instagram daily for more looks!

10 Things To Watch Out For At The Sochi Winter Olympics

Between Fashion Week and the Sochi Winter Olympics, this week is CRAY. But we're pretty pumped that the games are finally here. I don't know about you, but I tend to get a little emotional during the opening ceremony. It's just so inspirational to see all the countries in the world come together under one roof. There are always tear-jerking stories, really interesting uniforms and crazy stunts, like when the Queen parachuted in to the stadium for the London Olympics (we hope you know that wasn't real). Could you imagine dedicating your whole life to something, and falling short just one second or one point? And what about getting injured during the biggest moment of your life? Talk about pressure! Yeah, it would definitely be cool to say that you went to the Olympics, but we're pretty happy watching it in our pj's and on our couches. Here's what you need to look out for if you're doing the same: - The Jamaican Bobsled Team: They qualified, but didn't have enough money to travel. But luckily for the Olympians, a chiropractor in Cincinnati donated the funds so they could achieve their dream. - Where the $51 billion went: To date, this is the most expensive Olympics ever. So basically we want to see where all that dough went. - Vladimir Putin: This dude just has such a bad-guy name, so we can't really see him smiling and welcoming all the guests. Who knows how he'll enter the opening ceremony? - Will there be real snow? We have NO idea why the Olympic committee would select a city that isn't cold during February. Sochi is basically a subtropical resort. - How Russia will handle safety: This is the topic on everyone's mind right now. We all want our Olympians and spectators to stay safe. - Potential Protests: Putin passed a law back in July which many people viewed as anti-gay. It basically said that citizens will be fined for spreading propaganda that encourages homosexual relationships. - Who will be the face of the US team? Last winter Olympics, Apolo Ohno and Lindsey Vonn dominated. But for this year, Ohno retired and Vohn got injured, so who will be the leader? - Shaun White: Does "Friends With Benefits" come to mind when you think of Shaun White? Well, he's also going for his 3rd straight gold medal this year for the halfpipe competition. - Quad Jumps: They're the new challenge for men's ice skaters, and whoever lands one will probably get gold. - Henrik Lundqvist: We don't have much to say about this Swedish hockey player, other than that he's beautiful. Oh, he was also voted to GQ and Vanity Fair's best dressed lists. For other lists, check out 30 things you can't wear once you're 30, 10 things to know as an Intern, and 25 things that would make a 25-year-old's day [Photo: Instagram]

Get The Exact Dress Venus Williams Wore To The Olympics Yesterday

Venus Williams took to the courts yesterday wearing a tennis dress of her own design.

Not only did she look sharp on the courts, but she has made her exact tennis dress (pictured above) available to all on her website EleVen by Venus. The best part? It's under $100. That's cheaper than a tennis lesson, and call us crazy, but we're pretty sure wearing a dress Venus designed would improve your tennis game equally as much.

See the dress Michelle Obama wore to cheer on Venus' sister Serena (it's still in available), stock up on red, white, blue with the Topshop x Opening Ceremony collab, and check out these necklaces that are almost as cool as a gold medal.

The Tracy Reese Dress Mobama Wore To The Olympics Is (Somehow!) Still In Stock

We love that she shops off the rack, but Michelle Obama is like Kate Middleton: everything she wears sells out immediately.

Olympics-Inspired: This Season, We’re Loving Sporty-Chic Bags

With a little over a week til the London Olympics, we're starting to feel a bit self-conscious about our own sporting abilities. While we may not be able to throw a javelin, or swim 100 meters (or, let's face it--swim 10), one thing we are good at is channeling athletics with fashion (art imitating life, right?).
