Former Olympian Bruce Jenner introduced herself as Caitlyn in an exclusive cover shoot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for July’s issue Vanity Fair.
After undergoing hours of facial-feminization surgery, breast augmentation and hormone therapy, Jenner has revealed a new identity which shows a large photo of Jenner as a woman with the caption “Call Me Caitlyn.”
The stunning images where of Caitlyn were taken in Jenner’s Malibu home.
“[Bruce] was always living that lie,” Jenner says in a behind-the-scenes video for the photo session.
“Every day, he always had a secret, from morning ’til night. Caitlin doesn’t have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.”
For Caitlyn, 65, the shoot was about “my life and who I am as a person.”
“It’s not about the fanfare,” she says in the video, which features her in various looks including a tiny bodysuit, a form-fitting black dress, a silky satin robe, a glam off-the-shoulder evening gown, and an eye-catching sequined floor-length number.
“It’s not about people cheering in the stadium,” Caitlyn continues. “It’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you a, ‘Thatta boy, Bruce!’ pat on the back.”
Jenner previously discussed his future surgery plans in his two-part Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce special, which aired earlier this month. The former decathlete shared that he’s planning to have an operation to change the shape of his forehead and to alter the shape of his jawline. He already previously revealed that he’s had a nose job, an upper lip lift, and an Adam’s Apple reduction.
