Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) made a political fashion statement for her first Met Gala appearance Monday, wearing a dress with a message for all the elites in attendance to see: “Tax the Rich.”
The progressive firebrand wore a white, strapless dress designed by Brother Vellies.
“When we talk about supporting working families and when we talk about having a fair tax code, oftentimes this conversation is happening among working and middle-class people (on) the senate floor.”
“I think it’s time we bring all classes into the conversation,” she added.
This year’s Met theme is “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”
