The reality TV star formerly known as Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner, made her debut today in pictures shot by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair.
Jenner, who had facial-feminization surgery on March 15, told the magazine:
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, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you "that a boy, Bruce," pat on the back, O.K. This is about your life.
Fox Business (owned by Fox News) host Neil Cavuto announced the pictures and added, "Want you to check out the Vanity Fair cover, to Dagen McDowell on, what the hell is going on? Dagen?”
Fox News' reporter Dagen McDowell replied:
That's how you transition? Bruce Jenner, let’s give him credit. He is the only person on planet earth who knows how to one up his most famous step-daughter, Kim Kardashian. She announces last night that she’s pregnant with a child. Well, you know what, I can do you one better than that. That’s how he unveiled his new identity, kind of leaving his male identity behind with Caitlyn.
McDowell added that Jenner was wearing a white satin corset that is "very Playboy bunny-esqe."
Cavuto then jokingly introduced Fox Business host commentator Charles Payne as "Charlene Payne" and added, "Rome, final days, but that's fine," noted Salon.com.
ESPN announced today that Jenner will be receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award on July 15 for his courage to come out as a transgender woman.
