Anika Noni Rose wore the perfect outfit to kickoff the 2022 U.S. Open held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York on Monday. The “Princess and the Frog” actress made a glamorous statement in dazzling fashion to sing the national anthem before watching Serena Williams take on Danka Kovinic of Montenegro in the women’s single first round match.
Rose looked stunning as she made her way onto the field. The “Dream Girls” star wore a dark purple sequin blazer with matching high-waist pants. She complemented the sparkling set with a black corset that had a plunging sweetheart neckline and sheer panels on the bodice.
Rose sported a mohawk for the occasion and braided the sides in cornrows. For glam, the entertainer with a shimmery eyeshadow and a glossy neutral pout. To place more emphasis on her look she opted for minimal accessories and only added oversized silver hoop earrings.
Unfortunately the length of her pants didn’t allow for a peak at her footwear choice, but it would be no surprise if Rose completed her look with strappy sandals, sleek pumps or a pair of platforms. The Tony Award-winning actress tends to gravitate towards an array of shoe styles that are in line with her eclectic taste.
