"Glorious feeling."

Back in October, Selma Blair revealed she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in an emotional Instagram post:

And last night, Selma walked the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscars party with a cane...

Just a few days before the event, Selma revealed that her cane was specially customized for the Vanity Fair party:

Selma was met with loud cheers and support during the powerful red carpet moment:

Many people are thanking her for her moment of strength and visibility, and expressing what it means to them:

@SelmaBlair THANK YOU for showing-up in all ways! You are a heroine extraordinaire & you deserve that cape!! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Selma Blair being visibly disabled walking the red carpet with her cane is so damn important. Thank you for being visible when so many others would choose not to.

@SelmaBlair oh wow. I was once told it must be embarrassing to be seen with my large walking aid. Thank you for slaying with this x ~L

As someone who sometimes has to walk with a stick (since I was in my early 20's) and is frequently embarrassed by the staring it elicits, it means the absolute world to see Selma Blair looking a million dollars at the Oscars with her walking stick in hand. Thank you, Selma.

In conclusion, Selma was 100% breathtaking...

...and it was a moment that neither she nor anyone who witnessed it will forget.

Glorious feeling. Thank you. Always
