Caitlyn Jenner has revealed the pearls of wisdom passed to her by step-daughter Kim Kardashian since revealing her gender transition.
The 66-year-old former Olympian has been publicly documenting her journey since revealing her female self on the front cover of Vanity Fair last year.
And she has certainly had plenty of advice from those in the know about how to deal with increasing scrutiny.
Caitlyn told The Advocate magazine: “Kimberly [Kardashian] says, ‘If you do go out, you’ve got to rock it, baby!'” snapping her fingers.
“You cannot let [the paparazzi] get that picture. They’ll take a picture of you with no makeup on, lousy outfit — and they’ll use it forever.
“You’ll never get rid of it. Kim’s very good at that stuff. It does take a little bit more work if you do go out. You’ve got to at least look good, at least the best you can.”
The I Am Cait star said she had learnt a lot about style from her famous family members.
She continued: “Now, my family stands out. Love them to death, but their style is certainly different. And they’ve packaged it and sold it extraordinarily well. Better than anybody else in history, let’s be honest.”
But Caitlyn is only too aware that “there’s more to being a woman than hair and makeup”.
She continued: “So recently, I’ve been trying to study up on it,” admitting to reading the book ‘How to Be a Woman’.
She said: “The second chapter was about having your period. OK? I will never deal with that. So there is so much in life that I need to learn about who I am and be authentic with myself.
“But I never want to assume that this whole thing called womanhood, that I could ever experience all of that. I will be able to live authentically as female, but I’ve missed so much.”
Caitlyn also brushed off the label of being a ‘spokesperson’ for the trans community, admitting that she is learning a lot as she goes and is “just trying to do my best, that’s all.”
