Caitlyn Jenner takes part in #10YearChallenge, posts before and after pictures of her transition
The 10-Year Challenge is a viral craze that has given social media users and celebs alike, a chance to flaunt how far they’ve come in the last decade
If there's anyone who aced the new Instagram #10YearChallenge, its Caitlyn Jenner. On Tuesday, the 69-year-old star joined in on the 10-Year Challenge, a viral craze that has given social media users and celebs alike, a chance to flaunt how far they’ve come in the last decade.
Celebrities on Instagram and users in general have been sharing pictures of themselves from the present alongside a picture taken of them a decade ago to compare and show off how far they have come in life. And when Caitlyn joined the bandwagon, her photos were from before and after her transformation.
Jenner, who underwent gender confirmation surgery in January 2017, captioned the image, “Now THAT is a #10YearChallenge Be authentic to yourself 💜,” which featured a photo of herself before surgery on the left and a recent photo of herself on the right.
It's been nearly two years since Jenner underwent her surgery, which she said “was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated," in her memoir, 'The Secrets of My Life'. The gold medal-winning Olympian, who revealed her new identity as Caitlyn in June 2015, fulfilled one of her lifelong dreams when she turned 68 in 2017.
In October 2017, Jenner posted a video clip on Instagram of herself walking on the beach in a dark, plunging one-piece swimsuit and wearing a wide-brimmed hat. “40 years ago my therapist asked me what my fantasy is,” Jenner wrote in the caption. “I told her walking on the beach being my authentic self and…”
In the video, an elated Jenner can be seen approaching the camera, she takes off her hat and proudly declares “Free!”, all the while twirling around as the waves crash ashore. And, the very next year in 2018, the reality tv star visited beachfront Los Cabos to ring in her 69th birthday with rumored girlfriend and business partner Sophia Hutchins.
During her birthday celebrations, Jenner wore a low-cut, white one-piece with one straight shoulder strap and a diagonal strap across the chest. And since the swimwear was quite high-cut, it showcased her long legs perfectly. The transgender activist looked radiant on her birthday as she made her way towards the loungers on the beach with her long brown hair left loose and a pair of dazzling diamond earrings. She also added a large floppy sunhat and shades and wore a green foliage-themed long duster on top of the swimsuit.
Meanwhile, Jenner's rumored girlfriend, Hutchins, opted for a white bikini with a bra top and tiny bottoms. And, just like Jenner, Hutchins too added a floral-themed duster and gold and black sunglasses, while her blonde hair was tied back.
