It's not possible to change the color of a messagebox. It inherits its style and colors from Windows. If you change the style in windows the messagebox will adapt ittsself.
If you wish to make such a messagebox then simply create a form in the same size of a messagebox and design it the way you want.

You can then call the form instead of a message box.
