Some follow up thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlyn1A little while back I wrote a blog when Caitlyn first appeared on Vanity Fair.  I was amazed at how stunning she looked.  Transitioning from a man to a woman is not an easy thing to pull off.  So I started to wonder about some things…..

Did all those years with the Kardashians help train Caitlyn to become the newest fashion maven?  Her picture is everywhere now, wearing this or that.  Apparently she has very good taste in clothes, although to me it’s hard to find a 6’2″ large boned person very graceful, especially in high heels. Her hands still look very manly, to me.  But, she does have all kinds of advice from her children about her clothing choices, so I am sure she will be dressed to the nines at all time.  No more running out for coffee in track suits like the old “Bruce with Boobs” days.

I also couldn’t help but wonder how Caitlyn looks when there isn’t a whole staff of hair and people making her beautiful.  I mean, I can see it for the photo shoot, but what do you do on a Monday morning?  When most people roll out of bed after a long weekend of partying or dressing up, they might look a little disheveled.  Oh wait, maybe like this:

I think, overall, that Bruce Jenner bided his time until exactly the right moment to reveal his transition.  We are more accepting about most things hetro/homo/trans.  Bruce built up the anticipation beautifully, especially with the Diane Sawyer interview.  Now people wait with bated breath to see where she is going, with who, and, most importantly, what she is wearing.

Good job, Caitlyn.

P.S.  I’m still waiting to see who she will date.  She has been linked with another transgender, but it could just be a friend.
