Selma Blair cut a chic figure on Wednesday as she attended the Lakers vs Heat game in Los Angeles.
The 51-year-old actress – who suffers from multiple sclerosis – was joined by her service dog, Scout.
Selma looked radiant as she wore her platinum tresses in a stylish updo, and opted for a bold red lip for a pop of colour in her look.
The mother-of-one opted for a pair of stylish leather trousers and a blazer-style coat, which gave an elegant feel to her look.
She appeared in good spirits as she took Scout to the Crypto.com arena for a gripping game in which the Miami heat team eventually took the lead.

The celebrity-studded match was also attended by the likes of Selena Gomez and her boyfriend Benny Blanco.
Selma got her golden canine Scout in 2019 following her MS diagnosis one year earlier at age 46.
She spoke about Scout during an interview with People, explaining that she brought him into her life for a sense of stability.
‘I’m a single mom, and I am alone a lot with my kid, and I wanted legitimate support,’ she said.
The Legally Blonde star shared that Scout is trained to provide her with physical assistance.
‘He’s with me all the time. If I fall into a big [muscle] spasm or have some trouble moving and need to recalibrate, he can get between my legs, help me get up, and balance me. It’s given me a lot of independence,’ she explained.
And about her 12-year-old son Arthur, she shared, ‘My son, when he goes to his dad’s, he loves knowing Scout is by my side.’
Selma gave a positive update on her condition in November last year.

Blair began by revealing that, although ‘it took a while’ for her to recover from multiple sclerosis, she was ‘feeling really, really much stronger now and building stamina.’
The Hellboy actress also stated that her disease had ‘been, for really many, many years, burning’ before she began her course of treatment.
The performer went on to speak about being able to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis over the last few years.
‘It’s been a really lovely journey in this second part of my life, of finding [my] community and realizing that nothing feels as good as helping to be a megaphone for other people,’ she said.
The performer also spoke openly about living with multiple sclerosis in her memoir Mean Baby: A Memoir of Growing Up, which was published last May.
In her book, Blair discussed effectively becoming a spokesperson for individuals living with the disease and embracing her new role in life.
She wrote via The Guardian: ‘I became a kind of face for the disease, an advocate for something that matters to me. Though it’s a role I never thought I would play, it has become who I am.’
‘I think it’s important to talk about it. When it comes to chronic illnesses, there’s a lot of shame in disclosing one’s experiences,’ she added.
The Legally Blonde star told how many symptoms manifested much earlier in her life which caused her great anxiety.
Before her diagnosis, Selma would suffer with vomiting, hair loss and rashes and was diagnosed with cat scratch fever and possible leukaemia while working on the movie Hellboy (pictured in Hellboy, 2008)
Speaking to British Vogue, she said: ‘As an adult, the lassitude and anxiety became terrifying, actually. I made mistakes. Wished myself dead. Attempted suicide. A few times. Out of desperation.’
Selma said she would often have to mask her symptoms while working on film sets and would self-medicate to help cope with pain.
She said: ‘Sets were excruciating sometimes with the exhaustion and the tics. I took benzos and Klonopin (used to prevent seizures and anxiety disorders).
‘I didn’t abuse those things, just alcohol. But I was lost and sad and could hardly ever smile. Hence my roles, I imagine.’
She added: ‘I was worried since the beginning of time that a glaring fault would remove me from the workforce. And usually it was my incoordination or getting stuck, too weak or sick, in my trailer – or any time, really.’
