AOC wears 'tax the rich' dress to Met Gala

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 31 year-old Democratic Congresswoman from New York, had "Tax the Rich" written in red across the back of her white gown.

"It's time we bring all classes into the conversation about having a fairer country," Ocasio-Cortez said about the slogan.

Like Ocasio-Cortez, many of the celebrities were first-timers at the Met Gala, including YouTuber Emma Chamberlain, Tik Tok star Addison Rae, musician Chance the Rapper, singer Olivia Rodrigo and "Game of Thrones" actress Maisie Williams.

The invitation-only Met Gala is a fundraising benefit for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and also marks the opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibition which this year is titled "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion."
