Selena was photographed by the paparazzi, arriving at the show in a black mini dress and matching cardigan and high heels. She styled her hair down and opted for bold red lips.

Selena opened up to one of the top fashion magazines in the September issue of how her desire to help others motivates her to keep fighting during her struggles in the public eye. “My lupus, my kidney transplant, chemotherapy, having a mental illness, having a publicly known heartbreak, these are all things that I honestly should have fallen for,” he said. “Every time I experience something I’m like, ‘What else? What else do I have to deal with?’” He said to himself that “’You’re going to help people.’ That’s what kept me going. There may be times when I’m not strong enough, and will do something to hurt myself.”
That voluntary drive to help led Selena to create her Rare Impact Fund, which aims to raise $100 million over the next 10 years to increase access to mental health services, along with her beauty brand, Rare Beauty. .
“Everything I’m tied to has a charitable aspect,” he said. “If something good doesn’t come out, I won’t do it. I don’t need money. I need people who want to fight with me.”
Last week, Selena announced the launch of her Serendipity3 Selena Sundae at the NYC dessert stand. Proceeds from it also go to the Rare Impact Fund.
“This is the most important thing I’m working on because it’s personal,” he said. “I’ve been very open about my mental health struggles and when I founded Rare Beauty, I wanted to make a difference… It’s great to hear people respond to our message with their own stories. It inspires and encourages me that we are making a difference.”
