"I was always worried - you never wanted to look like a guy in drag," she told the mag. "You never wanted to look like a guy in a dress, OK? If you're going to do that, come out, you really have to look the part. You have to look very feminine, you have to be able to, what I call my presentation is extremely important because it puts people at ease."
Mission accomplished! Caitlyn looked absolutely stunning in the photos and it sounds like she's very happy with the way they turned out, too.
"I mean these pictures—Annie [Leibovitz, the photographer], Vanity Fair, spared nothing doing it right, and the wardrobe, everything involved with it were just, the people were just great," she gushed. "It was, you know, two of the best days of my life. The pictures came out over-the-top great."
So, now that Caitlyn is free, what are her plans for the future? "I'm just going to go live life, I'm going to go enjoy life," she explained. "I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. [Up] to this point I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear, you know, sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can't get pictures and all that kind of crap, and I didn't want them to see if my fingernails were polished or, you know, on and on and on. It was just hell."
Now, Caitlyn is ready for her paparazzi photos. As Buzz Bissinger explained in the Vanity Fair article, "She can't wait when she goes out now to tell the paparazzi to 'make sure it's a good shot.'" Caitlyn is so beautiful, we can't imagine there could ever be a bad shot!
Even the mag's style director, Jessica Diehl, told VF Hollywood that out of a three or four hour fitting, there were only two things they didn't like. "Everything looks good on her," she said.
