Grammy watchers speculated on Twitter whether SZA was repping University of Maryland apparel during her Grammy's performance. Is it true?


SZA dressed to the nines in couture clothing from label Monse--not something you'd find at a University book store.

Monse's catwalk during New York Fashion Week


Nearly 20 million people watched the 2018 Grammy's on January 28. Our Verify researchers tuned in too, tapping into Twitter's pulse of the hits and misses of Hollywood's music royalty.

While R&B artist SZA wasn't able to secure a win in any of her five nominated categories, she turned heads during her rendition of "Broken Clocks," not just for her vocals, but for her outfit.

SZA's fringed tank is not in fact something you'd find at UMD's campus book store. Her look is pulled from Monse's couture Spring 2018 line.

The blouse hit the catwalk during New York Fashion Week in September 2017. Blake Lively sported a similar look a few weeks later, in October.

The balls to my basket.

Lively's jersey-inspired look is on sale for $2,490. If that's too much of a price-tag punch, the site Moda Operandi let's you put up a deposit of $1,245, so everyone can look like the celebs.
