On June 1, 2015, Caitlyn revealed her new name and look on the July cover of Vanity Fair. The cover image drew more than 9 million unique visitors to Vanity Fair’s website in a single day, the most ever for the site. Jenner also became an instant trending topic on social media, attracting one million Twitter followers in just over four hours, setting a new Guinness world record.
