Since Caitlyn Jenner made her debut on Vanity Fair earlier this week, the question crossing everyone’s lips was, of course, which brand would be the first to tap her for a campaign. According to Page Six, Estée Lauder brand MAC is eyeing the reality TV star for an endorsement opportunity. Apparently, MAC’s people have been considering Jenner as a spokesperson for a while now and if the deal goes through, that would be two Jenners under the Estée Lauder umbrella. Caitlyn’s daughter Kendall already has a contract with the cosmetics giant, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the deal with MAC moved forward.
MAC has a track record of being LGBT friendly, having tapped folks like Ricky Martin, RuPaul and Elton John for previous campaigns. Jenner would be a bright addition to the beauty brand’s tradition of inclusivity and diverse spokespeople, so we’re crossing our fingers that this one comes through.
Folks have also been speculating about which designer will be the first to dress Caitlyn once she makes her first red carpet appearance as a woman. Jenner is six foot two, certainly taller than most women, but according to Jessica Diehl, the stylist who dressed her for the Vanity Fair spread, Jenner’s got the kind of proportions some women would kill for. “Caitlyn’s proportions are fashion proportions, really,” she said. “She’s tall, slim, narrow hipped: kind of ideal to dress.” And if Cait’s “ideal” proportions aren’t enough to make you a little jealous, Diehl says she tried the clothing for the shoot on a fit model the day before Jenner was due to come in and surprisingly, everything fit.“That actually never happens to me,” she said. “The physique is really extraordinary. We should all be decathletes.” Sounds like Caitlyn is doing just fine in the clothing department – some girls have all the luck.
