Vanity Fair has revealed Bruce Jenner's full transformation into Caitlyn Jenner. She's ushered into the public eye by famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz with a cover that reads, simply, "Call me Caitlyn."
In a behind-the-scenes video released at the same time, Caitlyn acknowledges the significance that this moment has on her life. "Bruce always had to tell a lie," she explains in the video. "He was always living that lie. Every day, he always had a secret from morning to night. Caitlyn doesn't have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I'm free." She's now started her own Twitter account, which amassed a record-breaking one million followers in four hours and three minutes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (President Obama previously held the record for gathering 1 million Twitter followers in four hours and thirty minutes.)
