Selma Blair has penned an emotional message about her first red carpet appearance since she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), after breaking down in tears while posing for photos at Vanity Fair’s Oscars party on Sunday evening. 

The 46-year-old actress took to Instagram the day after the star-studded event to share a photo of her manager Troy Nankin holding her hand as she walked the red carpet with the help of a cane. 

‘There are moments that define us. This is one of those indelibly watermarked in my heart. This is #troynankin; my former publicist turned manager, best friend, and fake husband. We joke,’ she began her post.

‘I have become a different woman in the last few years, through struggles and the intense pride of motherhood. @vanityfair has always been a champion of mine, like Troy. And yet, I have not fully realized my capabilities as an actress.’

Selma said she wanted to make an appearance at the red carpet event to remember the first time she attended the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2000 with her ‘not yet famous friend’ Jake Gyllenhaal.  

‘I believed in him and his career and wanted him there,’ she explained. ‘And this dinner always symbolizes so much. And I kept going because it was always a night in Hollywood that was full of Hollywood dreams with all the talent present in their glory. I loved to watch.’ 

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story star, who appears in the March issue of Vanity Fair, explained she was invited to the magazine’s annual Oscars party this year but was concerned about attending because she has been experiencing a flare-up of MS symptoms.

There are moments that define us. This is one of those indelibly watermarked in my heart. This is Troy Nankin; my former publicist turned manager, best friend , and fake husband. We joke. I have become a different woman in the last few years, through struggles and the intense pride of motherhood.

Vanity Fair has always been a champion of mine, like Troy. And yet, I have not fully realized my capabilities as an actress. I wanted to be at this red carpet to remember my first time attending with a not yet famous friend, Jake Gyllenhaal. 

I believed in him and his career and wanted him there. And I kept going because it was always a night in Hollywood that was full of Hollywood dreams with all the talent present in their glory. I loved to watch. I was invited this year. I am featured in March issue . Thank you @radhikajones @kristasmith @samiranasr #juliemiller @cassblackbird. 

So this was a streak of light. To say I am here. I am still in an exacerbation so there was some nervousness. I don’t do anything the way I was once able. I will though. I can regain much. Mommas gotta work. And I will be able to do so much more on my own, But this man. Until that comes …This man and a host of others light the way and hold the moon. 

@thetexastroya was a hero. Wanting me to shine brightly in a time that can be so challenging. He knew I wanted to be able to stand proudly as the woman I have become and hope to be. To be a part of something so special when my body won’t move clearly yet. And then I felt the love from the photographers who have watched me goof around on red carpets since I was in my twenties. 

I felt the warmth of the bulbs. The strength of my gown. His attentive touch. And still I hoped my brain could send signals for the remainder of my time there. And I sobbed. And I appreciated every single second. Every surprising tear, he was there. As he has always been. And that is the reason I could. Thank you Troy. We got me just where I wanted to be. For a night. And I later pushed my way into a family photo with Diana Ross (omg) . So much to post but not before this one. True love. Right here. Forever.

At one point, she was overcome by emotion and broke down in tears, saying, ‘It took so much to come out here,’ as the crowd cheered her on.

In the series of videos, she explained that her friend Pink nominated her to join designer Stella McCartney’s #ThereSheGrows campaign by dedicating a tree to help save the endangered forest. 

Selma, who dedicated a tree to her seven-year-old son, Arthur, asked her friends Sarah Michelle Gellar and Kris Jenner to do the same while raising awareness for the Leuser Ecosystem.   

‘The Leuser Ecosystem is an endangered forest in Indonesia and it is home to the endangered Sumatran orangutan and it desperately needs our help and attention,’ the actress explained. 

‘You can join with us by dedicating your own tree on Instagram and nominate your own friends with the hashtag #ThereSheGrows.’ 

Ahead of her appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, Selma posted an Instagram photo that showed some of the work that went into customizing her cane for the evening.

‘This is love. @tombachik customizing my cane with my monogram and a real pink diamond,’ she began. 

‘How did I get so lucky? I wanted a special cane for #vanityfair dinner. So… @lyonhearted went out and found patent leather and @bic_owen and he stitched it on.

‘Hours of love put in. And then #tombachik 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.’
