Multiple sources report that photographer Annie
Leibovitz will shoot Jenner’s first magazine cover
as a woman.
Bruce Jenner reportedly has been set to grace an upcoming cover of
Vanity Fair magazine. Posing for his first print photo shoot and
interview since revealing that he was transitioning from a man to a
woman in April, the former Olympian would appear on the cover as
a woman, multiple sources have reported.
Bruce’s Vanity Fair pictorial would be shot by legendary
photographer Annie Leibovitz and is set to hit newsstands
sometime this summer, a source from the publication has said.
Bruce announced his ongoing gender transformation in a revealing
interview with Diane Sawyer. Laverne Cox, the first openly
transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy Award in the
acting category, congratulated Bruce soon after his interview was
aired, writing on Twitter, “It is always brave to stand in one’s truth.
Earlier this year, the gold medalist taped private conversation
between him and his family about his gender transition for E!’s
special “Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce”.
After the special episode aired earlier this month, Bruce said he had
been since overwhelmed with tons of positive comments and
support from fans and even celebrity friends.
During the emotional episode, Bruce’s stepdaughter Khloe
Kardashian asked him, “Are you planning on not being Bruce any
time soon?” He replied, “That’s quite possible, yeah,” adding that he
would complete his gender transition “probably in the spring.”
