Doing a magazine cover in nothing but your underwear is a daring choice for any celebrity, when it's Caitlyn Jenner's (formerly Bruce Jenner) big reveal it's an even braver fashion statement. 

Jenner made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair yesterday. For the grand reveal she opted to make a bold choice of posing in a vintage style corset with matching pants.

The lingerie is from US retailer Trashy.com which specialises in risque underwear. The two-piece set was customised for Jenner but it almost identical to the "Edy corset," which retails on the site for $200 (around £230).

The brand is no stranger to the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Founder and owner Mitch Shrier told HollywoodLife: "I have now made something for every single member of the Kardashian family."

Explaining the outfit choice for the cover Jessica Diehl, Vanity Fair's Fashion and Style Director who oversaw the styling on the shoot said: "There was a stripped-down idea there that sort of felt like underneath all of this excitement and newsworthiness is the soul of a woman. And that didn’t need a lot of covering up. It was not meant to be risqué in any way. It was really meant to sort of show with all honesty and purity, 'This is what is going on. Here I am.'"

Although full images from the issue are yet to be revealed, a behind-the-scenes look of the shoot, photographed by Annie Leibovitz, reveals a glamorous eveningwear wardrobe.

Jenner also modelled a black off-the-shoulder gown by Zac Posen, which the designer shared an image of on his Instagram account.

Other outfit choices appear to include a bright red gown by Donna Karan, a gold sequin by Badgley Mischka, a retro Halston dress, an Herve Leger bodycon look and a lingerie look from Agent Provocateur.

On the inspiration behind the looks in the shoot, Diehl explained their starting point: "I went to her house and stayed there for a couple of hours maybe, and just spent the time talking through things and bringing up lots of pictures and inspiration images, from Lauren Bacall to The Thomas Crown Affair to people who I think look amazing on the red carpet. And just vintage photographs of old Hollywood stars. A couple of Jackie Kennedys are never wrong."

The Kardashian/Jenner clan are no stranger to the fashion industry collectively racking up the magazine covers and runway appearances.

 

Kim Kardashian revealed that she was on set for the shoot to lend a helping hand - she told Pagesix.com: "I was there at the shoot and saw the process and helped pick the glam team. I loved being a part and helping to make Caitlyn feel really comfortable and confident. She would always ask me glam questions and stuff like that.”
