The Event: The 30th anniversary celebration of the SAG Foundation at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills on Thursday evening. The actress was joined by the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Diane Kruger.

Why We Dig: "Menswear-inspired" red-carpet ensembles are nothing new, but Spencer's cool tux truly takes the "borrowed-from-the-boys" look to new heights. Whereas most ladies opt for skintight suits with plunging necklines, Spencer was all buttoned up in her tailored Ralph Lauren look. She kept the outfit from looking too masculine by adding a classic red lip, sparkly David Yurman earrings and silver minimalist heels. This is one red-carpet risk that definitely paid off.
