Caitlyn Jenner Forged Olympic Glory and Cultural Fame Decades Ago.

History in the making! is set to make her first big public appearance at the 2015 ESPYS on Wednesday, July 15, where she will accept the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.Caitlyn, whose eight-part documentary airs on E! beginning July 26, sported an airy, peach-hued dress by Michael Costello in a promo video for the series—a chic look that Kim had made for her family trip to Mexico last year. “I originally made that dress from Kim,” Costello explained. “That’s why it’s a little short [on Caitlyn].

But she’s finally using her all-knowing power for good, correcting those who incorrectly use Caitlyn Jenner’s former name or the incorrect pronoun when asking about her. Though Jenner has already transitioned from male to female, participated in an emotional televised interview with Diane Sawyer, and was famously featured on the stunning cover of Vanity Fair’s July issue, the former Olympian, 65, has opted not to walk the red carpet at tonight’s event. A source tells Us Weekly that, “She doesn’t want to draw an obscene amount of attention to herself and take away from the other deserving athletes.” Accompanying the I Am Cait star to the event will be her three stepdaughters, Kim, Khloe, and , who have all voiced their support for Jenner. The Next Web found that only some questions referring to Caitlyn will pull answers from the Wolfram Alpha database, which has updated its text, thus producing the correct gender identification.

She represents “possibly this first crossover athlete who had massive, massive fame and visibility in one gender, and now probably equaling it in a second gender,” said Rick Burton, a former chief marketing officer for the U.S. We constantly FaceTimed about this dress and sent videos back and forth about the perfect nude [and] shade of blush.” Costello first noticed his dress resting on a couch in Caitlyn’s Malibu home in the Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce special that aired in May. “I see this fabric on the couch in the video and I’m like, ‘Is that my dress? Other questions, though — like “How old is Bruce Jenner?” — will generate answers from Wikipedia, forcing Siri to read out-of-date text. (The Wikipedia page on Bruce Jenner redirects to Caitlyn Jenner, but Siri won’t automatically switch to that page.) The oversight does not seem to be an issue within Wikipedia’s database.

Olympic Committee who now teaches sport management at Syracuse University. “That’s pretty amazing.” At the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics, Jenner blew away the field and amassed a world record score to win the gold medal in the decathlon. This looks too much like it.’ And then later I saw the [I Am Cait] promo video and I said ‘Oh my God, that’s crazy.’ I can’t believe it—she’s wearing my dress,” Costello said. (Last month, Caitlyn Jenner chose to identify publicly as a woman and E!

For one thing, the decathlon, with its demanding obstacle course of speed and strength and finesse, was still a premiere event at the games. (Try to name any Olympic decathlon champion of this century.) Jenner’s victory earned her the unofficial title of greatest athlete alive. In stories published before this date, she was referred to as Bruce Jenner and male pronouns were used.) The designer also has some expert insight on Caitlyn’s style, which, as we’ve seen to this point, favors slim-fitting wrap dresses, slinky LBDs and printed skirt and blouse combos. “She likes simplicity and she likes to be chic but feel effortless. When Jenner burst across the finish line in the 1,500 meters on the final event of the second day — all good looks and toned muscle and flowing hair — someone handed her a small American flag on a stick for her victory lap. “Now you get a guy like Michael Phelps who can continue to compete in the Olympics, even though he was able to make millions,” said David Wallechinsky, president of the International Society of Olympic Historians. “Bruce Jenner didn’t have that option.

And Costello actually submitted designs for the star to consider. (We’ve heard whispers that Angelina Jolie’s stylist Jen Rade may be assisting with styling duties for Caitlyn’s red carpet debut tonight.) “We submitted some really pretty sketches, and we did a lot of black and strapless and we did a few royal blue colors,” Costello said. “I know that they did ask for some stuff to be strapless. America had exited the age of Mickey Mantle, whom Burton described as “TV’s first real sports star.” Yet Nike was barely off the ground, and Michael Jordan not yet in high school.

A TV movie followed in 1981, and, three years later, “The Bruce Jenner Winning Workout,” available on VHS home video and preserved forever in the rabbit hole of YouTube.
