SZA has consistently found ways to impress us. Since blowing up with her double platinum album CTRL in 2017, the New Jersey native has seen an abundance of success due to her soulful sounds and impeccable songwriting. In fact, the Love Galore singer even snagged a BET award for Best New Artist in 2018. 

Besides her strides in the music industry, the contemporary R&B star has also landed on numerous “best dressed” lists, thanks to her love of designer fashions and custom threads on the red carpet.
