Ryan Lochte Is The Mad Hatter For Halloween!

Ryan Lochte and his fiance Kayla Rae Reid go all out for Halloween with their Alice in Wonderland costumes at the 2016 Casamigos Halloween Party on Friday night (October 28) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The newly engaged couple met up inside the bash with Derek Hough, his girlfriend Hayley Erbert and lifestyle guru Lauren Conrad.

In his latest blog, Derek opened up about Halloween week on DWTS: “I don’t know what my Halloween costume is going to be in real life, but we’re doing a spider theme for the dance.”

He added, “She’s [Marilu Henner] a black widow and I get trapped in her web. It’s kind of cool the way it starts. We’re going to kind of make the web. I went to a fabric store on Tuesday and bought some white elastics and we’re going to do this choreography with them.”

FYI: Ryan and Kayla are wearing costumes from Yandy.com.
