Michigan man stylist to Oscars host

Detroit native Sam Spector has been working with the host of the Oscars, Neil Patrick Harris, for months.

Spector says he and Harris were developing different looks for the night.

He adds Sunday morning was by far the most hectic day.

"We started in about November discussing concepts, looking at pictures and images with designers," said Spector. "He and I went back and forth with colors and fabrics. Then I approached different designers and custom made all his outfits."

Spector now lives in New York City, but says he goes back home to Detroit about four times a year to visit family.

The one thing he misses most about the city is Coney Island.
