Selma Blair made her first public appearance Sunday night since revealing her diagnosis with multiple sclerosis last year.
The actress appeared at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party in Beverly Hills on Sunday night wearing a pink, mint green, ice blue, and black dress while carrying a custom cane to support her movement.
“This is love,” Blair, 46, wrote on Instagram of her cane, personalized with her own monogram. “How did I get so lucky?”
“I wanted a special cane for #vanityfair dinner,” she continued. “So… @lyon_heartedwent out and found patent leather and @bic_owen and he stitched it on. Hours of love put in. 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 first revealed in October that she was diagnosed with the disease, and has since opened up on social media about the challenging moments she has faced. “Going out, being sociable holds a heavy price,” she wrote in a post after her diagnosis. “My brain is on fire. I am freezing. We feel alone with it even though the loving support has been a godsend and appreciated.”
