UIAlertController custom font, size, color

I am using new UIAlertController for showing alerts. I have this code:

// nil titles break alert interface on iOS 8.0, so we'll be using empty strings
UIAlertController *alert = [UIAlertController alertControllerWithTitle: title == nil ? @"": title message: message preferredStyle: UIAlertControllerStyleAlert];


UIAlertAction *defaultAction = [UIAlertAction actionWithTitle: cancelButtonTitle style: UIAlertActionStyleCancel handler: nil];

[alert addAction: defaultAction];

UIViewController *rootViewController = [UIApplication sharedApplication].keyWindow.rootViewController;
[rootViewController presentViewController:alert animated:YES completion:nil];


Now I want to change title and message font, color, size and so. What's best way to do this?

Edit:
I should insert whole code. I created category for UIView that I could show right alert for iOS version.

@implementation UIView (AlertCompatibility)

+( void )showSimpleAlertWithTitle:( NSString * )title
message:( NSString * )message
cancelButtonTitle:( NSString * )cancelButtonTitle
{
float iOSVersion = [[UIDevice currentDevice].systemVersion floatValue];
if (iOSVersion < 8.0f)
{
UIAlertView *alert = [[UIAlertView alloc] initWithTitle: title
message: message
delegate: nil
cancelButtonTitle: cancelButtonTitle
otherButtonTitles: nil];
[alert show];
}
else
{
// nil titles break alert interface on iOS 8.0, so we'll be using empty strings
UIAlertController *alert = [UIAlertController alertControllerWithTitle: title == nil ? @"": title
message: message
preferredStyle: UIAlertControllerStyleAlert];


UIAlertAction *defaultAction = [UIAlertAction actionWithTitle: cancelButtonTitle
style: UIAlertActionStyleCancel
handler: nil];

[alert addAction: defaultAction];

UIViewController *rootViewController = [UIApplication sharedApplication].keyWindow.rootViewController;
[rootViewController presentViewController:alert animated:YES completion:nil];
}
}

Not sure if this is against private APIs/properties but using KVC works for me on ios8

UIAlertController *alertVC = [UIAlertController alertControllerWithTitle:@"Dont care what goes here, since we're about to change below" message:@"" preferredStyle:UIAlertControllerStyleActionSheet];
NSMutableAttributedString *hogan = [[NSMutableAttributedString alloc] initWithString:@"Presenting the great... Hulk Hogan!"];
[hogan addAttribute:NSFontAttributeName
              value:[UIFont systemFontOfSize:50.0]
              range:NSMakeRange(24, 11)];
[alertVC setValue:hogan forKey:@"attributedTitle"];



UIAlertAction *button = [UIAlertAction actionWithTitle:@"Label text" 
                                        style:UIAlertActionStyleDefault
                                        handler:^(UIAlertAction *action){
                                                    //add code to make something happen once tapped
}];
UIImage *accessoryImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"someImage"];
[button setValue:accessoryImage forKey:@"image"];
