Rose -- the main female character in the popular Titanic movie -- is remembered not only for her touching story, but also for her elegant, old-fashioned look. Rose's look makes for a nice costume for dress-up parties of any occasion. After her trademark evening gown and jewellery are located, anybody can look like Rose with a little hair styling and make-up and a few more accessories.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Semi-permanent hair dye
  • Pin curls

  • White gown gloves
  • Make-up

  1. 1

    Dye the hair with a reddish-brown semi-permanent hair dye a day before the dress up occasion. Semi-permanent hair dyes wash out after a few days, so it's best for anybody who doesn't want a drastic style change.

  2. 2

    Sleep with pin curls in the hair the night before the occasion. The pin curls will create the loose, flowing curls as seen in Rose's hair in Titanic. Wear the hair down or in a loose French twist with the costume.

  3. 3

    Wear a long, dark red gown with a square-cut neck and sleeves that cover only the round part of the shoulders. To get the closest possible match, find a gown with black bead or sequin adornments across the chest and shoulders.

  4. 4

    Wear red pumps or flats the same colour as the dress. Black shoes may also work if red shoes are not available.

  5. 5

    Wear dangling earrings with a single marble-sized gem that hangs at the bottom. Wear a necklace with a similar appearance. Both of these items may be found inexpensively at jewellery stores in shopping malls.

  6. 6

    Apply red lipstick, mascara and blush that matches your natural skin tone.

Tips and warnings

  • Dangling rhinestone earrings can be used in place of the green gem style if necessary.
