- Selma Blair donned a pink and mint colour block dress complete with cape at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party on Sunday night.
- She also shouted out her custom cane complete with a pink diamond.
- This was her first public appearance following announcing her multiple-sclerosis diagnosis in October.
Actress Selma Blair walked the red carpet during Vanity Fair’s Oscar after-party Sunday, which marked her first public appearance since revealing she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Dressed in a black, mint green, powder blue, and pink gown, the “Legally Blonde” star turned heads with her flowing, colour block dress complete with flowing cape. She also walked with a custom black cane which she posted about on her Instagram, saying it was monogrammed and included a real pink diamond.
“This is love ????. @tombachik customising my cane with my monogram and a real pink #diamond. How did I get so lucky? I wanted a special cane for #vanityfair dinner. So… @lyon_hearted went out and found patent leather and @bic_owen and he stitched it on. Hours of love put in,” a portion of her caption read.
The ‘Cruel Intentions’ star was diagnosed with MS on August 16
The 46-year-old opened up about her diagnosis in October via an Instagram post.
“I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things,” she wrote. “My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it. And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best.”
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society defines MS as “an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.” According to the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center, more than 400,000 Americans are living with the disease, which commonly affects young adults from 20 to 40 years of age.
Late Sunday night, Blair tweeted about her experience walking the carpet, calling it a “glorious feeling” after thanking Vanity Fair for capturing a stunning image of her.
