Breaking news: Bruce Jenner's transformation to Caitlyn Jenner
Bruce Jenner lands the cover of Vanity Fair's July issue as her new identity, Caitlyn

What a way to welcome the month of June: here's another image that's about to break the Internet.

Bruce Jenner is now Caitlyn Jenner. Revealed today by the good folks at Vanity Fair, the former Olympic athlete and head of the Kardashian-Jenner clan graces the cover of the upcoming July issue, shot by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Clad in a bustier with her hair, make-up and nails done by Oribe, Mark Carrasquillo and Deborah Lippmann respectively, Jenner looks every bit the easy, breezy and beautiful cover girl. As far as breaking the internet, she could certainly give Kim Kardashian's controversial Paper magazine cover a run for its money.

It's a far cry from the Jenner we've been used to seeing all these years, ever since her spotlight debut after winning the gold medal for the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics. But if you've been keeping up with the Kardashian-Wests, you'll know that she last made headlines in April during her televised interview with Diane Sawyer about her transition.

"I'm a woman," Jenner declared. And just like that, those words sealed themselves in pop culture's hall of fame for quotable quotes. There are a couple more lined up — she reveals more truth nuggets to Vanity Fair, some of which are particularly heart-wrenching.

"Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day, he always had a secret from morning until night. Caitlyn doesn't have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I'm free."

With the release of the cover online, Jenner has also started a Twitter account, which has already been verified. Her first tweet went out to more than a staggering one million followers — a number that's sure to shoot up continuously.
