It’s been a long time coming, but Caitlyn Jenner has finally stepped, quite literally, onto the world’s stage. At tonight’s ESPY Awards, where she was honored with the Arthur Ashe award for courage, Jenner spoke—as herself—for the first time.
“The last few months have been a whirlwind of so many different experiences and emotions,” Jenner said breathlessly after being welcomed by a standing ovation and assuming a confident place behind the mic. “I’ve never felt more pressure than I’ve ever felt in my life.”
Dressed in an elegant white pleated custom Versace gown and sideswept, retro-glam waves, Jenner cut a striking figure on the stage. “Picking out this outfit…okay girls, I get it,” she conceded, laughing. “It was exhausting!”
