Anika Noni Rose is absolutely stunning in this photo. Her hair, makeup, dress…everything is gorgeous! She only stopped relaxing a year or so ago and just decided it was time for a change. She felt like she needed to look a certain way to snag a role, but has since ditched that fear and it doesn’t hurt that she is a well accomplished actress.
“Part of it was the business,” she explained. “Feeling like I had to look a certain way for the business, in order to get the audition, to get in the room and to get the job. Then it was like, you know what? I have ten thousand wigs in my house; why am I doing this?”
