Caitlyn Jenner Talks Conquering Biggest Fear At The ESPYs: 'My Voice Issue Bothers Me'
It's been a good week for Caitlyn Jenner.
Caitlyn Jenner absolutely slayed at the 2015 ESPYs. She looked amazing, what she said was inspiring, but for Caitlyn, it took a whole lot of courage to get up on that stage.
The awards were her first major appearance since revealing her new identity on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine back in June, and the 65-year-old has since revealed how nerve-wracking the whole thing was.
"What a week. Let me just start by saying, I'm so happy it's over! What a relief," Jenner blogged in her weekly WhoSay editorial series.
She continued by writing about the two huge hurdles she had to tackle, first of which being what to wear. The pressure was on for Caitlyn to get it right, but when you've got Donatella Versace reaching out and saying "I want to do the dress," what more could a girl ask for?
Jenner went on to describe her other big fear, that being the speech. She writes: "As a dyslexic kid, my biggest fear in life was to go in front of the class and read because I wasn't very good at it - and that stays with you through your whole life."
She added: "At the ESPYs, I really had to stick to the prompter because I only had a certain number of minutes to make it right, to get my points across. I practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced to make sure I'd nail it."
Another concern of Caitlyn's when watching back the ESPYs was the "voice issue", she wrote in her blog: "While I felt like I looked great and that the gown looked fabulous, I still have a voice issue. It’s not quite right compared to my feminine appearance. That bothers me a little bit. However, I hope that people don’t listen to the pitch of my voice, but listen to what I have to say. That’s important to me."
Well, we can confirm that you well and truly NAILED it, Caitlyn. Not only did she completely own the ESPYs, she's now got another seal of approval from the queen of fashion magazines, Vogue.
The fashion bible has labelled her one of its best dressed women of the week and she's currently battling with the gorgeous Olivia Palermo for the top spot.
The TV personality is in great company with the likes of Tilda Swinton and Mia Wasikowska also featuring in this week's Top 10.
It's been a pretty good week for Ms Jenner, next stop, world domination.
