Selma Blair Plays With the No-Pants Trend and Towering Platforms For Latest Cover
Selma Blair is embracing her love for fashion. After gracing the front of British Vogue’s May issue earlier this year, she was recently honored as a recipient of Glamour’s 2023 Women of the Year honor. For the magazine cover and subsequent photoshoot unveiled on Nov. 1, the actor wore a series of striking looks experimenting with daring trends and playful footwear. Blair’s standout looks were photographed Lauren Dukoff and styled by Erin Walsh, who’s famously worked with the likes of Anne Hathaway and Selena Gomez.
Blair, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2018, posed on the cover in a bright blue Versace minidress and matching opera gloves with black floral appliqués. With her cane in hand, she also wore the celebrity-favorite Kiki platform boots from Marc Jacobs, which come with a towering 7-inch heel.
“Disability does not seem escapist. But I love clothes.”
The actor has long been involved in the world of fashion, wearing playful, dramatic looks long before her diagnosis. She recently collaborated with Isaac Mizrahi on an accessible clothing collection for QVC, which included elements like flat seams, magnetic closures, and seated wheelchair pants. “Disability does not seem escapist. But I love clothes. I love pretty people doing pretty things,” she told Glamour.
Blair’s appreciation for fashion is clear, and it’s a joy to see her having fun with her clothing. Elsewhere in the story, she continued to play with various trends. In one image, she went pantless in a backless metallic top, Marc Jacobs underwear, and knee-high Moschino boots with giant buckle details. For another, she rocked a David Koma bra top with black leather Khaite pants with red fishnet tights peeking from underneath.
Blair is one of Glamour’s seven Women of the Year honorees, alongside Brooke Shields, Quinta Brunson, Mary J. Blige, Geena Rocero, Millie Bobby Brown, and America Ferrera. Check out more photos from her latest shoot ahead.
