Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Met Gala Dress Makes Bold Political Statement


Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Carolyn Maloney of New York attended the Met Gala on Monday, and both wore their politics all over their dresses. 

In a white gown by Brother Vellies, progressive stalwart Ocasio-Cortez had the words “Tax the rich” scrawled in bright red down the back of her dress.    

Maloney’s dress at the invite-only charity event had “ERA” written on it — for the Equal Rights Amendment — along with “Equal rights for women” printed several times down her cape.
