Caitlyn Jenner breaks the Internet, overshadows Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy


Isn’t she lovely?

No really. Bruce Jenner makes a handsome woman, indeed.

The Olympian bid goodbye to his male self, making his debut on the Annie Liebovitz-shot cover of July’s Vanity Fair as Caitlyn Jenner. Dressed in an ivory-colored bodysuit, hair in curls and makeup done just so, Jenner — dare we say? — looks absolutely fabulous. In the interview, the reality star, 65, is referred to with female pronouns, and thanks to “facial feminization surgery” — as mentioned on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and usually involving a brow lift and lip augmentation — looks very elegant indeed.

The photo was shot at Jenner’s Malibu, California, home and comes on the heels of her two-hour ABC interview with Diane Sawyer in which Jenner confirmed the transition to a woman.

In addition to the corset, Vanity Fair released a black-and-white video on the making of the cover. “Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets,” Jenner narrates. “As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.”

Inside, more images depict Caitlyn in gold lamé, a black bustier and an off-the-shoulder gown showing off ample cleavage.

Jenner also debuted a new Twitter account with: “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.” In about four hours, the account had more than one million followers. That beats President Obama, who joined the social media service two weeks ago and hit one million followers in just under five hours.

Now that’s what you call breaking the Internet.


Elsewhere in Kardashian land, Kim talks to the latest issue of Glamour about excited she and Kanye West are about their second pregnancy. Getting there wasn’t easy. As documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the 34-year-old has her uterus scraped for any abnormalities and claimed to have sex up to 500 times a day. “I didn’t know that I was going to be so open,” KK told the mag. “But meeting people at my fertility doctor’s office who are going through the same things I’m going through, I thought, ‘Why not share my story?’ It’s been really emotional.”
