She had the crowd spellbound in striking Versace couture

But Buro predicts her best fashion moments are yet to come. It's been just under two months since the remarkable woman's landmark Vanity Fair debut, and she already has fashion houses, from the established to the emerging, clamouring to dress her.

Atelier Versace nabbed first fashion rights for the ESPY Awards last Wednesday, dressing Jenner in a simple yet stunning white long-sleeved gown for her emotional Arthur Ashe Courage Award acceptance speech. Donatella Versace told WWD: "Caitlyn's speech was touching! Her words are relevant and she is an inspiration to the world and me." The fashion house also posted an image of Jenner in the gown on Instagram with the caption, "a vision in white."

Versace aren't the only ones obsessing over Jenner's transformation. Zac Posen is cashing in, 'gramming pictures of Jenner in his garments from the Vanity Fair shoot, and Buro received a press release from eyewear company Dita frothing over the fact that Jenner donned their sunnies in the same shoot.

Their obsession is well-founded: in just two short months, Jenner has proved herself to be quite the style icon. She's emerged looking just as good in streetwear as she does on the red carpet, recently rocking an all-black ensemble with leather leggings and boots, and a chic white Alexander Wang skirt and top for a Celebrate Gay Pride event in NYC.

Her brand new reality show, I Am Cait, premieres next week, so we can expect many more fashion moments to come.
