But first, let her take a selfie! Caitlyn Jenner shared her first official selfie on Thursday, Aug. 6, joining the legions of iPhone-toting teens and her fellow celebs, including her selfie-loving stepdaughter Kim Kardashian.

The Olympic athlete, 65, snapped a photo of herself in a car and posted the beautiful shot to Twitter and Instagram. In it, she shields her eyes from the sun in a pair of retro-inspired aviator sunglasses, and wears her long, highlighted brunette locks down and in loose waves.

"No #SocialMediaQueen can be crowned without posting a selfie, so here's my first! #TeenChoice," Jenner wrote, explaining the inspiration for her inaugural digital self-portrait.

The reality star is up for Social Media Queen at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, Aug. 16. She is up against several big stars for the award, including Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Taylor Swift.

Jenner publicized her nomination last month and nodded to her recent, headline-making transition by tweeting, "And to think I wouldn't have qualified for this nom a few months ago… What an honor! #TeenChoice #SocialMediaQueen"

If Jenner is, in fact, crowned the Social Media Queen by the Teen Choice Awards, it will be her second awards show honor this summer. Last month, the I Am Cait star took the stage at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater for the 2015 ESPY Awards, where she accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
