MANILA, Philippines – Vanity Fair has posted the first photo of Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, the cover star for the magazine’s July issue.
Renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz shot the cover, with a story by award-winning contributing editor Buzz Bissinger.
Watch the magazine’s behind-the-scenes video above.
“The last few days in doing this shoot was about my life, and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in the stadium…this is about your life,” Jenner can be heard saying in the behind-the-scenes video, noting that with the release of the issue, Jenner was finally free.
Vanity Fair also shared the short clip below on Instagram:
“Caitlyn Jenner” and the hashtag #CallMeCaitlyn quickly rocketed to the top of the Twitterverse as the top trending topic in the United States and worldwide.
Jenner broke Obama’s Twitter record for the shortest time to reach one million followers, achieving the mark with her @Caitlyn_Jenner account in four hours and three minutes.
Obama – who joined Twitter as @POTUS only last month — took about 4.5 hours to reach the one million mark.
“Another Jenner world record, and at 65. Who’da thought! Humbled and honored to have reached 1M followers in 4 hours. Thank you for your support,” she said in only her third tweet.

“For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” said Jenner back then, noting that despite the initial surprise after learning of her journey, her famous family remained supportive. Fans, industry colleagues, and social media users all over the world followed suit, with many expressing their support online.
