Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez entered the red carpet at Met Gala 2021 wearing a white dress by Brother Vellies that had a message “Tax the Rich” written in red on the backside, reported USA Today.

In a conversation with Vogue, the Democratic Congresswoman from New York opened up about her outfit.

She said, “We can’t just play along, but we need to break the fourth wall and challenge some of the institutions. While the Met is known for its spectacle, we should have some conversations about it.”

Although, Alexandria’s message received mixed reactions from the social media users.

Alexandria gave a befitting reply to the trollers. She wrote, “And before haters get wild flying off the handle, New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public. I was one of several in attendance in this evening.”
