Selma Blair Arches Back In Stilettos Showing Numb Leg

Selma Blair is arching her back in a red minidress and stilettos for a heart-breaking reveal. It's been three years since the 48-year-old actress divulged her multiple sclerosis diagnosis, with today bringing the "Cruel Intentions" star melting hearts in a raw and revealing post showing the moment she first felt the disease's symptoms. 

On Thursday, Selma's 2.4 million Instagram followers got bombshell photos, but this was about the caption as Selma recalled the day she first felt a leg that was "numb." Check it out below.

Three Years Since Diagnosis

Scroll for the photos. They come amid uplifting news given the situation. 2020 saw Selma reveal she's in "remission," but the reality leaves the star with a cane, one she rocks like a pro and has donned on the red carpet at the Oscars.

The photos, from a glamorous night and on a shoot, showed Selma in a glorious, sleeveless dress with a knee cut, showing off her killer legs in strappy stilettos and velvets amid crested pillars during a night out. But it was a hard night.

Selma, pictured seated on red velvet flooring in the fancy setting, was also snapped with an arched back, but the photos brought sober words.

"3 years ago. My dearest pals came to watch Siriano show. I walked that day. In the show. Noticing for first time, my leg was numb. When I first stepped out. I couldn’t feel the ground or how to lift it," Selma began, adding:

"My brain was trying to compute. It hardly dampened my day though."

Despite the heavy news in the caption, Blair closed it on a high. In fact, the "Legally Blonde" face called it quite a night, but for other reasons. "Art and Carolyn shot these favorite frames of mine. In that incredible space in nyc. After the show was done. And what a show it was. The greats," she concluded.

Selma, who was this year photographed out and about in L.A. with her cane and looking sensational in a mini skirt, has since opened up since her diagnosis. See the cane and swimsuit below!

Last month, while posing by her horse during a riding session, Selma addressed the various symptoms of the neurological disease she is plagued with. The actress was all smiles in the photo, but the caption kept it real.

"I couldn’t feel my bum or left leg on my horse. The proprioception issues, inability to sit still, spasms, twitches. Jerks. Dystonia increased," Blair wrote.

Selma continues to battle her condition while raising 9-year-old son Arthur, regularly featuring in poolside shots with his mother.
