Actress Mo'Nique, nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Precious," dropped some hints to Cindy Adams about her Oscar dress. She revealed that she'll be wearing gold on Sunday and her gown will be designed by Tom and Linda Platt from New York. Mo'Nique told Adams:

You don't know them. They're not well known. But when nobody knew or cared who Mo'Nique was, back in my Apollo days, I had someone who was looking for a designer for me. They took me on and made fabulous gowns for me. We've been together nine years, and I sure wouldn't take this big opportunity for them and wear some other designers' clothes. I want to give them this night. They deserve it.

She'll be getting ready in L.A. with her hairstylist, fashion stylist, assistant, videographer and her husband.
