Bruce Jenner, who revealed in April plans to transition into a woman, was unveiled as “Caitlyn” on the front cover of Vanity Fair’s July issue.

In the photo shoot done by Annie Leibovitz, Jenner, 65, appears cross-legged on a stool wearing an ivory corset. 

Speaking of the transition from man to woman, the former Olympian told “Friday Night Lights” author Buzz Bissinger: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.’”

The issue hits newsstands on June 9.

A post on Twitter from Jenner’s new account read: “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.”

The post garnered more than 26,000 retweets in less than an hour.

Jenner, who appeared alongside wife Kris Jenner in “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” before their divorce in March, chose to the new name with a “C” instead of a “K” to create distance from the Kardashian moniker, sources told TMZ.

“She has never been her own person before, and becoming part of the Kardashian brood would undermine her goal,” TMZ reported. “Our sources say it’s not that there’s bad blood between Caitlyn and the Kardashians … it’s all about self-identity.”

Fans eager to follow Jenner’s new life can tune in to an eight-part docuseries, premiering July 26, at 9 p.m. on E!
