Selma Blair loves a good nostalgic moment, especially when it comes to her fashion. The “Cruel Intentions” star took to Instagram on Monday evening during a retro moment in front of her bedroom’s full-length mirror. The outfit was inspiring an 80s flashback for the actress, which is a decade she frequently references on social media when bringing up some of her outfits. Blair has also taken to fashion to help get through the slog of the COVID-19 pandemic and help bring a comfort of sorts.
48-year-old Blair shared a stunning photo on her Instagram page while taking advantage of the mirror in her bedroom. Wearing a full-length black tracksuit, the actress had one leg unbuttoned that she flung up on top of her dresser for a serious power pose.
“A mirror moment. I had the 80s version of this tracksuit. In lavender. And bulkier. In fourth grade. Ruffles on my pre teen athleisure. Like my mom said, everything comes back around,” Blair wrote to her 2.4 million fans.
Selma Blair loves tapping into some major retro vibes, and has been leaning on the era of the 80s to help keep her happy during the strange times of 2020. A few weeks back, she shared a “music video” she shot while jamming out to A-ha’s famous track, “Take On Me.”
“An 80’s music video shout out is exactly what the doctor ordered. @janeylopatypr and I are killing time in @ronnykobo. Unreservedly playful and feeling it. Friends, a sexy dynasty era dress and a soundtrack. A little goes a long way… try it.”
Selma Blair’s 80s tracksuit flashback comes on the heels of her donning an all-white jumpsuit for dinner at one of her favorite West Hollywood hangouts.
The actress was seen heading to Mauro’s Cafe inside the Fred Segal store and wrote about the rare outing:
“A fresh getup for dinner at Mauro’s. Clinging to this parking lot for dining sanity. Delicious. It’s my one big evening out every so often…the light has been golden from the fires. But clearing. Also Fred Segal is an LA staple and more charming and appreciated than ever.”
Selma Blair doesn’t just use fashion for a good time, she also uses it to do good in the world. The other day, she revealed a new headscarf collaboration between Talbots and a group of artists to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation.
Selma Blair shared one of the scarves for 2020, designed by award-winning British designer Karen Mabon.
“Each year, I look forward to the time the new TalbotsxSusanGKomen scarf arrives. @susangkomen saves lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer,” Blair wrote to her fans.
She added, “I might not have known about this important collaboration highlighting artists, women and breast cancer if not for my long time friend @janeylopatypr, who first sent me these scarves to admire and use and help get out the word.”
