We recently said Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively may be the hottest couple ever.

Ryan Lochte and Olivia Culpo (Miss USA!) might give them a run for their money.

If they're even a couple, of course. The Olympic swimming stud and reigning beauty queen were spotted at New York's Fashion Week together. #JEAH!

Ryan Lochte and Olivia Culpo continued the night together at NYC hotspot 1Oak where they were seen sitting and chatting at a table around 1 a.m.

According to news reports, the not-unattractive duo met last Wednesday at shoe designer Brian Atwood's party at the Four Seasons restaurant.

Hopefully Ryan's not just rebounding now that his crush Blake - who he wanted to cameo on Gossip Girl just to meet - is off the market for good.

Either way, Olivia's hardly a consolation prize. She's Miss USA, people! What do you think ... do they make a cute couple? Lochtulpo? Rylivia?

Olivia Culpo is Miss USA 2012.

The 20-year-old Miss Rhode Island won the 61st annual pageant Sunday and will go on to represent the United States in the Miss Universe pageant later this year.

She topped a field of 51 contestants on Sunday to take the title at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip to take the coveted title.

First runner-up was Miss Maryland Nana Meriwether, while second runner-up was Miss Ohio Audrey Bolte. Congratulations go out to all three lovely ladies.

There can be only one winner, though, and it was the beautiful brunette , a student at Boston University who donned a stunning purple Grecian-style gown.

Throughout the night, Culpo discussed her love of music - she played the cello for 13 years and was an avid band camper - and for quoting celebrities.

Culpo's best moment was when she explained why it would be fair if a transgender woman - like Canada's controversial Jenna Talackova - won the title:

"I do think that would be fair, but I could understand how people could be apprehensive to take that road," she said. But, "there are so many people who have a need to change for a happier life. I do accept that because I believe it's a free country."

Well said, Olivia Culpo. Well said.
