Call me Caitlyn: The woman formerly known as Bruce Jenner on Vanity Fair cover

2 June 2015 / 1 year 4 months ago

Vanity Fair magazine have unveiled the first pictures of Caitlyn Jenner.

The former Olympian - who was known as Bruce Jenner before transitioning to a woman - has spoken out for the first time since her recent tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer in a feature accompanied by her first pictures as a woman, which were taken by acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovtiz.

Caitlyn said: "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.'"

She has also set up her Twitter account, writing on the micro blogging site: "I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me."

Meanwhile, in a previous interview, where Caitlyn confirmed she would be transitioning into a woman, she admitted she wasn't quite ready to announce the name she had chosen just yet.

She said: "If I do [reveal the name], the media will go crazy and I'll never get rid of them," before joking that it wouldn't begin with a K like her ex-wife Kris Jenner, step-daughters Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian and her daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

In other pictures from the shoot - which were taken at her Malibu home - Caitlyn is seen wearing a multitude of beautiful outfits including a ball gown and a sequinned dress.
