The 46-year-old, who announced late last year that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, wore a gorgeous black, pink and lilac gown complete with a cape.
Her cane, which she now uses to assist with her mobility, got some customised bling ahead of its public debut, including her initials and a real diamond.
It’s the first time Blair has made a red carpet appearance since her diagnosis.
It proved to be an emotional experience for the actress, who broke down in tears on stage.
Wow. Incredibly powerful moment on the #VanityFair red carpet. @SelmaBlair broke down in tears “it took a lot to come out here” She recently opened up about her battle with MS. The entire room cheered her on. @CBSLA pic.twitter.com/6LhPjPJ00X

The moment we will all be talking about tomorrow is the courageous #SelmaBlair, making her first appearance since announcing her MS diagnosis, at the VF Oscar party. She needs a cane to help walk, but she came to prove that no matter how tough this disease, she is a fighter. 🙌 pic.twitter.com/bCTo0hA59d

Blair opened up about her diagnosis in a lengthy Instagram post this past October.
“I am disabled,” she posted. “I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken GPS. But we are doing it . And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best.”
Selma – we definitely think this look from you tonight is your “best!”
