Hello everyone and welcome to yet another Oscars edition of “A Haute Second with Spencer” ! Ah yes, I can’t believe we are here. Now for those of you who don’t know, the Oscars red carpet is THE red carpet. It’s Hollywood’s biggest night! As always, I have put together a list of my picks for best dressed. Because it is the Oscars, I had to be a little tough and try not to let my bias take hold so here we go!


NATALIE PORTMAN IN DIOR

I am obsessed with everything about this Dior look on Natalie Portman. This whole picture is just simply art. The gold lace is stunning and the fabrics are so exquisite. My favorite detail though, can be seen by zooming in on the trim of her black cape. Behold, the names of women who were not recognized by the academy. This includes Greta GerwigLorene ScafariaLulu WangMarielle HellerMati DiopMelina MatsoukasAlma Har’eland Céline Sciamma. Absolutely amazing – by far one of the best dressed of the night and an excellent way to begin the decade.

REGINA KING IN VERSACE

All hail Regina King! Damn this Versace gown looks incredible on her! I saw this photo early in the night and I knew instantly this was going to be one of the best dressed looks. Regina King came to show everyone how it’s done, and has the set the bar for this new decade rather high!

ROONEY MARA IN ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

Ugh I am dying right now! Rooney Mara in Alexander McQueen was an instant favorite. First, black always looks amazing on Rooney. The construction of this gown though, is just on another level. The shapes are very sharp and those sleeves! I love everything about this look, I am short on words.

RENÉE ZELLWEGER IN ARMANI

Behold, our 2020 Best Actress in a Leading Role – Renée Zellweger in Armani. I thought this dress was really sharp and looked incredible on Renée. Is it simple? Yes. Is it perfect. YES! Here we have the perfect amount of sparkle, asymmetry, and length. Sometimes less is indeed, more.

CHARLIZE THERON IN DIOR

There is nothing in this life that Charlize Theron can do wrong. Charlize wearing this Dior gown, is a perfect example of that sentiment. There are so many parts to this gown that just make this whole thing flawless. I love the shape of the bodice, the perfection of the leg slit, and of course the train. We are not worthy!

CYNTHIA ERIVO IN VERSACE

The incredibly talented Cynthia Erivo wore Versace to the Oscars and I am over the moon. Cynthia is actually flawless. Not only did we have to watch Cynthia slay the Oscars stage with a live rendition of “Stand Up”, but we had to watch her conquer the red carpet. The one-strap is clearly a trend tonight and I love the build of the skirt. This is just perfect. Period.

BRIE LARSON IN CELINE

Oh, I love this! Brie Larson in Celine is a conjuration of dreams. I am obsessed with this fabric first of all. The crystals are just stunning. My favorite detail though is the cape feature falling from the neck line. This look is just very chic and she looks amazing.

SIGOURNEY WEAVER IN DIOR

If Sigourney Weaver walks a red carpet, she is instantly one of the best dressed. Do not fight me on this. I almost cried when I saw our alien queen as she is one of my heroes, and I feel honored to just breathe the same continental air as her. Sigourney is wearing a Dior gown. Is it my favorite? No probably not. It’s okay- but it’s Sigourney Weaver so you deal with it.


TOP THREE LOOKS OF THE NIGHT

This was probably the easiest decision I have ever made when it came down to picking a top three. Regina KingNatalie Portman, and Cynthia Erivo were on a whole different fashion level this year. They have set the bar so high, I am so interested to see how red carpet fashion evolves through this new decade!

Well that is all for me folks! Don’t forget to comment what your favorite look of the night was! As always, this has been a real joy- so thank you all for taking the time to enjoy the red carpet with me. I can’t wait for the next! Remember, red carpets are cool and all, but what’s even cooler you ask?

VOTING OF COURSE- GET OUT AND VOTE DAMN IT!

After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with a degree in Fashion Design, Spencer realized that his love for fashion was not entirely found on a runway, but seen on screen through film and television. As a Los Angeles event planner, Spencer began to organize panels of costume designers benefiting students who were fascinated by costume design. As Spencer’s connections within the costume design field began to grow, so did his love for the craft. Then in 2019, Spencer decided it was time to share his love for costume design on an international level and launched The Art of Costume.
