Bruce Jenner is no longer with us. Caitlyn is who appeared on the front cover of Vanity Fair as a woman.
The former Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete and star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, appears in women’s clothing under the headline “Call me Caitlyn”.
She was photographed by Annie Leibovitz.
Caitlyn Jenner told Vanity Fair: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.'”
Jenner appeared on the cover in a white corseted bodysuit, with shoulder length brown hair.
Jenner’s stepdaughter Khloe Kardashian said on Instagram: “We were given this life because you were strong enough to live it. I couldn’t be prouder. Caitlyn, You are beautiful.”
The photo shoot at Jenner’s Malibu, California, home and comes on the heels of her two-hour ABC interview with Diane Sawyer in which she confirmed her transition to a woman. The much-anticipated “20/20” interview on April 24 was watched by more than 17.1 million viewers.
The Olympian who married and divorced reality show “momager” Kris Jenner has appeared for years on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Jenner’s own still untitled docu-series chronicling her transition is scheduled for the same network, E!, beginning July 26.
In addition to the corset, Vanity Fair released a black-and-white video on the making of the cover. It shows Jenner getting her hair done and posing in a long, off-the-shoulder gown with ample cleavage.
Vanity Fair posted a preview of Buzz Bissinger’s story, for which the writer spent “hundreds of hours” with Caitlyn. Jenner reveals her progress in transitioning, having undergone a 10-hour facial-feminization surgery in March. Bissinger also spoke with Jenner’s four children from her first two marriages who detailed Jenner’s absenteeism from their youth. “I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce,” eldest son Burt Jenner stated. “I’m very much looking forward to that.”
