Last night, WSJ. magazine hosted its 13th annual Innovator Awards, recognizing top leaders across industries such as fashion, art, music, philanthropy, and tech.
For the event, SZA stepped out in a little black dress with a white collar and long sleeves. She accessorized the look with a pair of black pointed-toe heels and ruffly white socks, with her curly hair falling loosely around her shoulders.
I personally loved the look!
People thought it was so cute and fun!
But everyone wasn’t a fan.
Some people thought it was kind of costume-y.
But SZA stood by the dress — and defended her choice of wear in an Instagram comment.
“I know I’m quirky and odd and off-center,” she wrote, adding that, “you [N-words] hate it. What else is new.”
Users also continued to support her in the comments, with one person saying in part: “We should be uplifting this sista. She is beautiful, period. @sza, congratulations.”
Indeed! Congrats again, SZA. Keep being amazing. ✨
