The Cruel Intentions actress fronted a new programme – Introducing, Selma Blair – which will explore her battle with MS.

She hit the red carpet on Saturday night to mark the premiere at the Sag Harbor Cinema.

Selma looked incredible as she opted for a floral red and white dress, with a black trim, for the bash, adding black heels to the outfit.

The star walked the red carpet with a black cane, and was later joined in front of the photographers by director Rachel Fleit.

MS is a lifelong condition that damages nerves in the body and makes it difficult for sufferers to do everyday things, including walking, talking and eating. 

There is currently no cure, with symptoms including fatigue, issues with vision and difficulty walking.

Introducing Selma Blair will follow her journey and treatment after the diagnosis, as she undergoes a stem cell transplant as well as chemotherapy.

Speaking about the illness in her trailer, she told viewers: ‘I would like it to be as dramatic as I am. I was told to make plans for dying.

‘Not ‘cause I have MS, because I’m fighting MS.’

Elsewhere, Selma was seen going between cracking jokes to struggling to walk properly and climb stairs.

She confirmed her diagnosis in 2018 on Instagram, stating that she initially struggled to get doctors to take notice of her symptoms, before finally getting the news after 20 MS-related lesions were found on her brain.

‘I have #multiplesclerosis,’ she said at the time. ‘I am in an exacerbation.

‘By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix, I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. 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.

‘I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share [sic].’
