Last night, WSJ. magazine hosted its 13th annual Innovator Awards, recognizing top leaders across industries such as fashion, art, music, philanthropy, and tech.
Some of the honorees included Kylie Jenner, Martin Scorsese, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and SZA. She was named Music Innovator of the Year following her hugely successful album SOS, which spent a record-breaking 10 weeks atop the Billboard 200 chart after its release in December.
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.
One user even compared the look to Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family.
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. ✨
