Selma Blair proudly celebrated a new milestone in becoming the new Brand Ambassador for Accessibility for QVC in a new Instagram photo series shared on Tuesday.
The Cruel Intentions actress, 50, who announced she was in remission from multiple sclerosis in 2021 after being diagnosed three years earlier, uploaded a strew of snaps as she enjoyed a visit to the company’s Philadelphia headquarters.
The star, who was the epitome of chic during London Fashion Week, penned in the caption to her 3.1 million followers: ‘Spending time in my mother’s hometown, Philadelphia… which is also the homestead of my new home at QVC!’
The mother of one gushed, ‘Home is what it feels like’ and added that she was ‘so proud to be the QVC Brand Ambassador for Accessibility.’
Selma expressed that the trip was ‘meaningful’ and sent her gratitude to accessibility advocate, Maura Horton, who, ‘has made such a difference in this journey of learning and inclusion. Scout and I love you all,’ she wrote, referencing to her service dog.

In the first photo shared in the carousel of snaps, the actress could be seen wearing a long wool coat with gold buttons on the front.
She added a pair of light blue jeans and a dark-colored top that was mostly concealed by the warm coat. The star layered her look with a tan scarf that was wrapped around her neck.
A QVC tote bag was slung over the crook of her right arm, while a stylish black purse was balanced on her other arm.
In her left hand, Selma held a red and white leash as her service dog Scout stood closely next to her.
A second snap showed the star, ‘wearing glasses and sitting on the floor behind pink flowers reading,’ according to her image caption.
The Legally Blonde star could be seen holding a thin stack of papers in her hand as she sat next to a comfy gray couch.
The third photo in the series captured the actress ‘wearing a lavender T-shirt with the words “SQUID INC” printed on it while standing with Scout in a large closet.’

The next picture was taken from behind the star as she sat on a large seat on a spacious set at a studio to discuss her brand ambassadorship and the new product line called ‘Accessible Living’ with Rachel Ungaro.
The Sweetest Thing actress also gave her fans a glimpse of herself flashing a big smile as she appeared on a large television screen.
During her getaway, the star had the chance to catch up with friends and shared cute snaps and clips of the special moments.
One of the last snaps included a photo of Selma happily ‘signing a book for a friend in a purple jacket’ and pointed out the colorful balloons in the background of the picture.
The final image was an adorable close-up of her service dog, which Selma described as, ‘Scout looking directly into the camera.’
The new QVC line, which Blair is the ambassador of, focuses on both ‘adaptive’ and ‘accessible’ products for individuals, such as clothing and home gear, according to People.
‘It’s such a privilege,’ she gushed to the outlet. ‘I am just one person representing a whole huge part of the population. And really, the disabled community needs allies. I’m an ally. I also happen to have my own [disability].’

She later explained, ‘There’s a lot of things I just forget that are not going to be easy for me, like gardening.’
‘I don’t get on the ground like that as much anymore because getting up by myself after being on the ground is really hard. There’s things I see here that’s like, this can go into the disability space.’
On the topic of shopping, Blair stated, ‘All people have a lot of what we call ‘guilty pleasures’ in our daily lives. Well, the disabled community doesn’t have a lot of consumer guilty pleasures. It’s very serious.’
However, she explained that, ‘it doesn’t always have to be’ that way. ‘There can be lighter subjects and some of those lighter subjects are shopping and making time for yourself. I love that QVC is welcoming people in the disabled community. There’s an evolution in that.’
Earlier this month, Selma also opened up to Today about her health progress after announcing her MS remission in 2021 after a stem cell transplant. ‘I don’t live in fear of this condition at all.’
Despite her remission, the actress admitted that she still faces symptoms during her day-to-day life.
‘I do not have the absolute weakness that I had for a long time, and if I focus on something really truly and I’m awake, I can correct it. But often, it just takes a lot of energy,’ she expressed.
Some of the symptoms include a ‘lack of appetite’ and also a ‘weakness’ towards the sun, and happens both when she is in ‘a flare’ and not. ‘It triggers autoimmune (issues).’

‘Even though I’m not in an active flare and maybe won’t be for a long time, I do feel it, and they’re called pseudo flares. And that seems to never leave me.’
Selma has been open about her MS battle since her diagnosis with MS, and now that she has joined the QVC community, her voice could be heard even more.
‘When I’m talking about one of my issues that’s meant to cover a broader theme, not anyone else’s disability, but a broader theme of what it can do to feel supported in your community.’
Christina Applegate is another Hollywood star who is in a current battle with MS, and revealed her diagnosis back in 2021.
