Am I the only female who's slightly uncomfortable with Caitlyn Jenner being pronounced fashion's newest "it" girl? I celebrate her transformation, of course, yet the gushing embrace by designers, the fawning comments about her toned arms, lean silhouette and height, especially for a woman of 65! One designer even said something along the lines of: "Not many women of her age would or could rock a corseted bustier on the cover of Vanity Fair." Well, no shit, Sherlock. That's because Caitlyn never went through menopause. She's tall and lean because of her original biology. Caitlyn is a new member of the tribe and we women welcome her. She's lovely! But please, let's not make her a symbol of what all women should look like just yet.
