At the screening, Selena showed up wearing a slinky, silky one-shoulder gown in a vibrant purple shade with an assymetric neckline and a bow draped to one side. She accessorized with a multicolored jewel earrings, a giant cocktail ring, and a sparkly silver clutch, but the most standout part of her outfit was a pair of party-ready, bedazzled glitter heels. The festive shoes were covered in bling and featured pointy toes, as well as open backs. Finishing off her evening-glam look was an elegant updo, a dramatic smoky eye, glossy lips, and dewy skin.

"I'll be honest, I didn't want to go to a mental hospital," she said in the film, "but I didn't want to be trapped in myself, in my mind anymore. I thought my life was over. I thought this is how I'm going to be forever." While seeking treatment, Selena was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. "I'm in a better place, but I don't know. I guess sometimes I can't explain it for sure. I needed to keep learning about it, I needed to take it day by day," she said about coming to terms with her diagnosis.
