Style Sneak Peek: Anika Noni Rose Gets Glam For The Oscars

02/23/2007 at 01:45 PM ET

Most celebrities are very secretive about the details of their red carpet look –it’s all about the big reveal. But Dreamgirl Anika Noni Rose is breaking the rules! Gearing up for her Oscar night performance, Rose’s glam squad gives PEOPLE an exclusive style sneak peak. Well, everything but the dress!

– Diamonds are a Dreamgirls Best Friend: The Tony Award Winning actress will be wearing Chopard jewelry. No specifics yet, but we do know she has a thing for bold color stones and classic diamonds.

– Free Flowing Hair: Hair stylist Randy Stodghill will be giving Rose “a modern day version of Veronica Lake” style. Rose prefers wavy and free hair, which will be styled just above her shoulders. For her multi-song performance, Stodghill’s “fast hands” will be whipping together an up-do.

– The Perfect Dewy Glow: “Oscar night is about glam, but not too much glam,” says makeup artist Tym Shutchai Buacharern. For strong neutral eyes and a bronze glow, he will use MAC Bronze EFX and MAC Blacktrack Gel Eyeliner and top off the look with Ardell Eyelashes. “She can wear them for hours!”

– Steppin’ To The Bad Side: Rose will be wearing custom-made Stuart Weitzman shoes with diamonds to compliment her gown. Toes need bling too!

I am not fimilar enough with Anika Noni Rose, but she is very pretty and her choice of dress is absolutely beautiful!
Her dress reminds me of Japanese paper stencils which were used to make lovely prints on the fabric.
I would love to get married in that dress!

She is very pretty and obviously has great style, too! I love the shimmer this dress has with the gold and the silver in it. It looks very glamorous and classy!!!

Rose’s dress is flashy but nothing to brag about.

She is very pretty. Why isn’t she getting the the attention like Jennifer is. I’m also wondering why she also hasn’t won awards like Jennifer too?

My FAVORITE dress of the night was the red one she wore during her musical number with the other two gals.
