Kim Kardashian West: I first met Caitlyn Jenner on Vanity Fair shoot

Kim Kardashian West met Caitlyn Jenner at her Vanity Fair shoot.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star has revealed she first laid eyes on her stepmother - who was previously known as Bruce Jenner before undergoing a gender transition - when she attended the cover shoot, Caitlyn's first as a woman.

She told Entertainment Tonight: "It was so beautiful. I actually went to the shoot, and that was my first time meeting Caitlyn.

"She's beautiful, and I'm so proud that she can just be her authentic self. I guess that's what life is about."

Meanwhile, Kim previously spoke out about the family's unfaltering support for Caitlyn.

She said: "No matter what, we love [Caitlyn]. I know [she] feels great that [her] whole family does support [her].

"I feel for people that don't have that support. There's such a high suicide rate in the transgender community, which is heartbreaking."

The 34-year-old television personality also took to social media to share a snap from the photo shoot, urging her stepmother to be "happy [and] proud" with who she is.

She wrote: "Caitlyn Jenner for Vanity Fair. Annie Leibovitz! How beautiful! Be happy, be proud, live life YOUR way! (sic)"
