When Caitlyn Jenner posed for the cover of Vanity Fair and the accompanying spread, even she didn’t realize how beautiful the photos would be, now excitedly sharing that they’re “over-the-top great.” In the cover shot, helmed by esteemed photographer Annie Leibovitz, Caitlyn, formerly Bruce Jenner, dazzles in a satin corset.
“I mean these pictures – Annie, Vanity Fair, spared nothing doing it right, and the wardrobe, everything involved with it were just, the people were just great,” Caitlyn added in the interview accompanying the shoot.
“It was, you know, two of the best days of my life.”
The former Olympic athlete and star of Keeping Up With The Kardashiansconfirmed that she was transitioning to a woman in April. In a highly anticipated tell-all interview with journalist Diane Sawyer. she admitted that she has “always” dreamed of being a woman, and went on to describe that she has known her true identity from an early age.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, Caitlyn also opened up about the struggle she faced to make sure the public were comfortable with her transition, saying: "I was always worried – you never wanted to look like a guy in drag, you never wanted to look like a guy in a dress, O.K. If you’re going to do that, come out, you really have to look the part.
“You have to look very feminine, you have to be able to, what I call my presentation is extremely important because it puts people at ease. And if you can do that, O.K., people are at ease, they’re just comfortable being around you.”

Now, Caitlyn has admitted that it is time to enjoy the life she wants to lead.
“I’m going to go enjoy life. I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul,” she tells Buzz Bissinger, the Pulitzer prize-winning journalist.
“To be able to wake up in the morning, be yourself, get dressed, get ready to go out, and just be like a normal person. That’s a wonderful feeling to go through life.
“I’ve never been able to do that; it’s always been confusion, it’s always been, you know, I’ve got one side [with] boy clothes, the other side’s women’s clothes. It’s like I cleaned the whole closet out – the boys stuff is gone, O.K.?”
