Despite spending July 4th in St Tropez with his buddies surrounded by leggy blondes, Ryan Seacrest's mind was clearly elsewhere.
Julianne Hough, star of "Dancing with the Stars" was flying from the USA via Rome and Genoa to be with Ryan.
Julianne, who hopes to make it as a country singer, ran up the gangplank and gave Ryan a "full body hug", planting a lingering, romantic kiss on his lips.
The couple were locked in an embrace until Ryan took Julianne's hand and they cuddled together on a couch in full view of passers by.
After Julianne freshened up and changed into a colorful but simple dress and silver flip-flops, the lovebirds went onshore and strolled together along the seafront of the tiny, romantic Italian harbor of Portofino.
They were joined by friends, Ben Silverman and fiancee Jennifer Cuoco at a simple seafront restaurant and after a late lunch were picked up in the boat's tender. They spent the rest of the day on Ryan's yacht.
The boat left for a cruise in the direction of Monte Carlo.
