After it was announced on Saturday that Bruce Jenner would be revealing his new self (or ‘Her’) to the world via the July issue of Vanity Fair magazine, the anticipated cover was unveiled this evening.
Bruce Jenner is now formally known as Caitlyn Jenner as she has completed her transgender process and become a female. And we have to say, we think she looks amazing.

Caitlyn looks almost unrecognisable (we did a double take when we saw the cover), but the shot really looks fantastic. It can’t have been an easy thing to do, so we say fair play to her. Renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz shot the cover, and in an interview with the magazine, Jenner haad this to say about her remarkable journey: “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.’ ” “I was probably at the [Olympic] games because I was running away from a lot of things,” she said. “I’m very, very proud of the accomplishment, I don’t want to diminish that accomplishment. The last few days of doing this shoot was about my life, and who I am as a person,” Caitlyn continued. “It’s not about the fan fare it’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you ‘That a boy Bruce’ and a pat on the back. This is about your life.” Kim Kardashian tweeted her message of support to Caitlyn, as did many other celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Sam Smith. We’re delighted that Caitlyn has been so well received.
