Shortly after the doors opened at the Ralph Lauren show yesterday morning, Anna Wintour took her front row seat, flanked by the Vogue team. That meant it was time for the show to begin. Usually, the crowd floats around her without gawking or saying hello -- it's just not how she rolls. But one intrepid young man wasn't afraid of her: Ryan Lochte, in a perfectly-tailored Ralph Lauren suit, marched right up to Wintour to say hello. There was a minute's hestitation, until he decided to lean down and kiss her on the cheek. He went for it, and she was surprised. Even better, Lochte's manager Erika Wright was on his heels and captured a shot of the moment. And, from the looks of it, Lochte is definitely touching Anna's bare knee. No wonder she had a huge grin on her face as he moved on through the crowd.
