Caitlyn Jenner may be well on the road to becoming a style icon.

The Olympic gold medalist—formerly known as Bruce Jenner—made her public debut as a woman on the July 2015 cover of Vanity Fairsporting an ivory-hued corset. A source tells E! News exclusively that nude and ivory "Edy" bustiers from Trashy Lingerie's stock were pulled three weeks ago (the style retails for $200)—while another corset from the brand was custom made for the shoot.

Celeb hairstylist Oribe styled Caitlyn's hair into included soft, tousled waves, while her beauty look, crafted by makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo, included a subtle smoky eye and pink lips. Although Caitlyn revealed to step-daughter Kim Kardashian that she paints her own nails, celeb manicurist Deborah Lippmann took over for this shoot, providing the star's first manicure and pedicure. Photos for the 22-page cover feature were shot at Caitlyn's home in Malibu by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz.

(With the release of her Vanity Fair cover on June 1, Caitlyn has chosen to publicly identify as a woman and E! News will refer to her using female pronouns. In stories published prior to this date, Caitlyn was referred to as Bruce and male pronouns were used.)

In one shot that overlooks her Malibu pool, Caitlyn dons a glittering gold dress with a low scoop back by Badgley Mischka and jewelry by Norman Silverman. Another snap, meanwhile, is even more intimate, showing Caitlyn in a makeup chair with her hair tossed back. She wears a black-lace Agent Provocateur corset (seen in an earlier photo from the spread), Donna Karan New York wrap and slingback heels.

Caitlyn also stuns in a black, off-the-shoulder Zac Posen gown featuring a trim mermaid silhouette, which she wears with Norman Silverman diamond earrings near a rack of dresses (the gold number included) from the shoot.

The E! star then goes for gold (again!) in a behind-the-scenes snap where she poses in a plunging gold Halston Heritage gown with a thigh-high slit and halter neckline. She nails Old Hollywood glamour here—finishing the look with a Helen Yarmak stole, gold sandals and Norman Silverman jewels.

In a sportier shot, Jenner reclines in a sleek black-and-red race car wearing an equally sleek red Donna Karan New York midi dress, cat-eye Dita sunglasses and a Ferragamo clutch.

Jenner has the whole posing for an editorial thing down, by the way—in the final look, she lies on a cream-colored couch sporting a Hervé Leger dress that makes all other LBDs seem irrelevant. (It's easy to see where Kendall may have gotten her knack for modeling.) She complemented the slim-fitting number with Monica Rich Kosann earrings and a Vhernier ring.

Caitlyn's magazine debut is a sartorial success—which is no surprise, considering she is, after all, in the same fashion-forward family as Mrs. West. Caitlyn's daughters Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner are style mavens in their own right, with signature collections for Topshop and PacSun under their belts, as well as an upcoming fashion line that will be independent from their prior collaborations.

It's a big week for Jenner who, beyond stunning the world with her Vanity Fair cover, will be honored at the 2015 ESPYs with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award and also made her first appearance on social media, creating Twitter and Facebook accounts.

"I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn," she wrote on Twitter. "Can't wait for you to get to know her/me."
