Angelina Jolie's Stylist On Why She Chose *That* ESPYs Dress For Caitlyn Jenner

Jen Rade spills on dressing Caitlyn for the ceremony.

Caitlyn Jenner looked truly stunning at the ESPYs earlier this week. 

Want to know who's to thank for her winning red carpet look? Angelina Jolie's stylist, of course. 

Caitlyn's sensational white Versace gown was clear for all to see when she took to the stage to deliver a speech highlighting the challenges transgender people face. 

'If you want to call me names, make jokes and doubt my intentions, go ahead because the reality is I can take it,' she told the audience. 

'But for thousands of kids out there coming to terms with the reality of who they are they shouldn’t have to take it.' 

Clearly moved, Kendall and Kylie Jenner plus Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian appeared to have tears in their eyes as Caitlyn addressed the crowd. 


When it came to choosing an outfit for the occasion, Caitlyn's fashion guru Jen Rade decided that simplicity was the way forward. 

'We wanted to do something classic, chic and sophisticated,' she explained. 

'Cait is beautiful: She has great hair, gorgeous bone structure, legs for days. So I just wanted it to be about her and not let anything take away from that.'

Despite pulling together an incredible look, Jen revealed that the pair have only been working together for a very short time. 

'We instantly hit it off and began talking about ESPYs … I was like, "That’s three weeks away, you guys better get on the stick! I’m Jewish, I have anxiety for you right now!"' she joked. 

'We started talking about what Cait would want, and we talked about doing something ivory. This is not the time to come out in a red dress. It’s not a photo shoot.

'This is the first time for Cait live, not as a model in a magazine or something.'
