Selma Blair walks the Vanity Fair Oscar party red carpet with a cane after multiple sclerosis diagnosis
The actress revealed in October that she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Blair, 46, stood out among Hollywood’s biggest names at the annual Oscar night event wearing a multi-colored chiffon gown and cape by Ralph & Russo.
The “Cruel Intentions” star made an even more powerful impression though with her cane that was customized with her monogram and a pink diamond.
Blair wrote in an Instagram caption that she “wanted a special cane” for the Vanity Fair dinner.
“So... @lyon_hearted went out and found patent leather and @bic_owen and he stitched it on. Hours of love put in,” she wrote. “And then #tombachick made it especially magical. I burst into tears. These gifts to get me through. #subtle #chic#love. I can’t thank these three enough. There are angels."
Blair has posted openly about her health struggles and successes on social media since revealing she has multiple sclerosis.
She opened up in a candid Instagram post in January about the often overlooked realities and struggles of living with multiple sclerosis, writing, "I choke with the pain of what I have lost and what I dare hope for."
"There is a truth with neurogedenerative brain disease," she captioned her post, which showed her lying in bed holding a teddy bear she said once belonged to her sister. "It is uncomfortable. It is a stadium of uncontrollable anxiety at times. Going out, being sociable holds a heavy price. My brain is on fire. I am freezing."
Blair has also shared photos of herself using her cane.
