Selma Blair wows at 50 with birthday swimsuit shoot
The Grammy nominee opened confidently and rocking her new blonde locks while leaning against a paddling pool edge – the multicolor blow-up sent out kiddie vibes, but the vibe was demure.
Selma looked classy as she modeled a cut-out brown bikini with criss-cross detailing leading up to a collar neckline. She rested her head in one arm while sending out a confident and fresh-faced gaze – minimal makeup here accentuated the Cruel Intentions star’s attractive features.
A swipe right showed the actress resting her head against the edge of her swimming pool and with closed eyes, here accompanied by her dog. In the final photo, the mom of one shared a shot of her son lounging in the sun – a very affectionate birthday note from Arthur Saint Bleick accompanied the image.
“50 years. And I woke sober and happy and groggy. And filled with love and messages,” a caption began.
Continuing, Selma wrote: “Dad even encouraged Arthur to make a real card after a few prank efforts from the lil Saint. We jumped in the pool and snapped a shot to commemorate. Naturally. And so I can write how much I appreciate you all. I wouldn’t be in this incredible time of my life, in a rainbow float, in the sun, amazed at how I have grown up.”
