“I’m ready for my close-up!”
It’s no secret that Bruce Jenner has posed for several magazine covers over the years, from Sports Illustrated to GQ. But now, the former Olympian is ready to make his debut as a woman. According to PEOPLE, Jenner has landed a cover of Vanity Fair, making it his first print photo shoot and interview since revealing that he’s transitioning from male to female in a candid interview with Diane Sawyer on 20/20 in April.
Jenner, 65, who calls his female identity “Her,” will appear as a woman in a Vanity Fair pictorial expected to hit stands this summer.
Legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz is rumored to be shooting the cover. Leibovitz, who most recently captured the Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast for Vanity Fair’s June cover, has worked with some of the world’s biggest celebrities over her 40-plus year career, including Michael Jackson, George Clooney, Queen Elizabeth II, Johnny Depp and Lady Gaga. In other words, Jenner’s debut as a woman is in very good hands!
During a recent special taping of Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce, Jenner was asked by stepdaughter Khloé Kardashian, “Are you planning on not being Bruce any time soon?” To which he replied, “That’s quite possible, yeah,” adding that his transition would occur “probably in the spring.”
Taking into consideration that the special was filmed earlier this year, it could very well be possible that Jenner has had his cover debut in the works for quite some time. In the meantime, Jenner will chronicle his new life in an eight-part docu-series premiering July 26 at 9 p.m. ET on E!
