Early this afternoon, Caitlyn Jenner introduced herself to the world. The Vanity Fair July 2015 cover star, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, introduced herself through her new Twitter account (@Caitlyn_Jenner) by posting a picture of the upcoming cover. The cover was shot my none other than Annie Leibovitz, so naturally it's a work of art. Jenner dons a white corset bodysuit on the cover, and the inside spread includes Jenner dressed in several different dresses.
The magazine cover was released about a month after the debut of Jenner's heartfelt public interview with Diane Sawyer, and the cover boldly states, "Call me Caitlyn." #CallMeCaitlyn has been trending on Twitter since the cover's release. The photo was followed up by a heartfelt message that was tweeted by Jenner herself:
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.
Celebrities and media outlets have been very supportive of this announcement, sharing their excitement for Caitlyn's introduction to the world:

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender campaigners -- and many well-wishers -- welcomed the high-profile debut, as did the 65-year-old Jenner's family, which includes the media-savvy celebrity Kardashian clan. 'I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self,' Jenner wrote in her first tweet after the magazine released the July cover photo by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz.
