Francia Raisa turned heads on the red carpet on Wednesday evening when she stepped out at People's One to Watch Party in Hollywood. The 29-year-old actress, who donated her kidney to best friend Selena Gomez in September, showcased her scar in a semi-sheer bodysuit embellished in sparkles – and she looked fantastic! Francia teamed her bodysuit with a pair of tailored white trousers and a diamond embellished jacket, completing her look with pink leg-lengthening heels. The actress wore her long, brunette hair down in a sleek, straight do, and rocked a smoky eye and semi-sheer gloss in terms of make-up.

Selena, 25, underwent a kidney transplant as a result of her lupus, which she was diagnosed with in 2015. Last month, she shared a beautiful picture of her with her friend, telling her followers: "It was what I needed to do for my overall health." She then went on to thank Francia in her post, writing: "There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made."

 

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
