Caitlyn Jenner is stunning, and was shot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz for the cover of Vanity Fair’s July issue, which includes the cover line, “Call me Caitlyn.”
The photographs are classy and thoughtful, with a retro feel to them. But there’s also a behind-the-scenes video that shows Caitlyn posing for several photos, wearing a selection of outfits including a gorgeous long black dress and a classic silk bodice.
“The last few days of doing this shoot was about my life, and who I am as a person,” Caitlyn says in the video. “It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving me a ‘that a boy Bruce’ pat on the back. OK. This is about your life.”
She continues, “Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie, every day. He always had a secret from morning to night. Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.”
It’s a powerful statement, and at 65, Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce, has finally become who she has always wanted to be. Watch the video below.
Caitlyn has been enjoying the full support of her family, too. The Kardashian/Jenner clan has taken to Twitter to show their support.
Kim tweeted a beautiful message about being proud to live the way you want, and Khloé shared similar sentiments.
Kylie Jenner took to Instagram to show her support for her “angel on earth.”
Kendall Jenner commented about being free (a sentiment Caitlyn shared during her shoot with Vanity Fair) and how impressed she was with the cover.
Lady Gaga also hopped on Facebook to show her support.
