It's here. Just days after rumors of a forthcoming Vanity Fair story hit the internet, the magazine has tweeted its July cover. Here, like the goddess that she is, is Caitlyn Jenner:

As we wait for the full cover story interview — the issue hits newsstands on June 9 — just take her in in all her glowing, Annie Leibovitz-photographed glory. 

Vanity Fair also shared a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, in which Caitlyn speaks about her transformation: "Bruce always had to tell a lie, he was always living that lie," she says. "Every day, he always had a secret, from morning till night. Caitlyn doesn't have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I'm free."

Buzz Bissinger, the Pulitzer prize-winning author of Friday Night Lights and a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, wrote the cover story. The magazine says he was given "unfettered access to Jenner and her family, [and] chronicles the tensions, traumas, and courage that shaped Caitlyn into the woman you see today."

On her brand-new Twitter account, the Olympian wrote, "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."

And remember, it's Caitlyn with a C.
