The Legally Blonde star donned her platinum blonde hair in a styled bob and threw on some shades for an easy glam look.

She opted for a clean make-up look and kept her accessories simple with some golden rings.

The Grammy Award nominee – who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in August 2018 – carried her phone in a cross-body satchel.

In December last year, Selma posted several photos with her dog Scout in honor of their graduation from training after 18 months.

The star captioned the photo: ‘It has been a year and a half in the making, but today my new partner, Scout, and I graduated! We are now a service dog team. Thank you to his trainer Courtney and the whole team at @servicedogs_ddg.

‘Scout helps me with some personal stumbling blocks and aids in my mobility. He is an English red fox lab and he is very good at his job.’

Selma continued: ‘He is very handsome, and friendly, but if you see me and Scout, and we are working (which he really always is, as am I) then give a smile but please don’t approach.

Service dogs are trained to follow dozens of commands and can help MS sufferers with a number of tasks including picking things up off the floor and grabbing items out of cupboards and drawers.

Trained dogs can also assist with things like opening doors, pulling along wheelchairs, removing clothing, reminding someone to take their medication and even acting as a brace to help protect against falls when their owner stands up or walks.

As well as physical support, service dogs also act as emotional support too, knowing how to help comfort the owner when they are having a bad day.

The disease caused Selma to lose full use of her left leg and created speech difficulties for the star in 2018. However, she revealed in August 2021 that she’s now in remission.

‘I’m in remission. Stem cell put me in remission,’ she said at an event promoting her documentary Introducing Selma Blair. ‘It took about a year after stem cell for the inflammation and injuries to really go down.’

She continued, ‘I was reluctant to talk about it because I felt this need to be more healed and more fixed.

‘I’ve accrued a lifetime of some baggage in the brain that still needs a little sorting out or accepting. That took me a minute to get to that acceptance. It doesn’t look like this for everyone.’

Keeping busy: Despite her diagnosis and battle with MS, Blair has remained busy with a number of other facets of her life including taking care of her son and still acting
