Caitlyn Jenner looks so confident on the cover of ‘Vanity Fair,’ but she had some major apprehensions before going through with the shoot! In a new video, Caitlyn reveals her biggest fear about debuting her new look.
Caitlyn Jenner, 65, had one important request before posing for Vanity Fair: Make sure she looks like a lady! In a new behind-the-scenes video from her shoot, Caitlyn opens up about her fear of looking like ‘a guy in a dress,’ and so much more. Click inside to watch!
“I was always worried…you never want to look like a guy in a dress. If you’re going to do [this], and come out, you really have to look the part,” she says. “You have to look very feminine. Your presentation is extremely important.” Don’t worry, Caitlyn — you totally nailed it! The Olympian looked beautifully feminine in the shoot.
As Caitlyn continues to tell her story, we’re learning more and more about her difficult past. One shocking reveal she made, which was first announced in her April 24 20/20 interview, is that Bruce Jenner, 65, actually began taking hormones to begin his transition in the 1980s before he was married to Kris Jenner, 59. Now, Caitlyn explains why she didn’t go through with it back then.
“I was so isolated because there was no information,” she admits. “We’ve had such a movement over the last ten years, and understanding of these issues. We’ve had the Internet develop, where you can actually see other people who are going through the same struggle you’re going through. You can communicate with them. And you find out that you’re not alone. There is a lot of very intelligent women.”
Caitlyn also credits famous trans women, like Laverne Cox, for bringing awareness to the issues the transgender community faces. “I’m kind of following in their footsteps,” she gushes. “They made it easier for me. And I hope, with my honesty, I can make it easier for someone else down the line.”
Caitlyn has absolutely nothing to worry about when it comes to looking womanly like she wanted to — in fact, she appeared so feminine on Vanity Fair, that Rob Kardashian, 28, didn’t even recognize her!
“All the girls, we knew Caitlyn was shooting this. But my brother had no idea,” Kim Kardashian told Access Hollywood at the CFDA Awards on June 1. “So I sent it on a mass text to everyone and my brother was on it, and he was like, ‘Kim, why are you sending me this? Who is this woman and why do I care?'” OMG!
Don’t worry, though — once Kim set the record straight, Rob had such an endearing reaction. “I was like, ‘Rob! That’s Bruce! That’s Caitlyn!” the reality star laughed. “And he was like, ‘Oh my God, she’s beautiful.’ And then he called her and they had a love fest. It was so cute, but the moment was so funny.”
We totally agree with Rob, though….Caitlyn is absolutely beautiful!
