In her first Met Gala appearance on Monday, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent a clear message for the cameras and the celebrities in her midst: “Tax the Rich.”

The progressive Democratic wore a white, strapless dress that had the message emblazoned in red on the back.

According to Vogue, the dress was created by Brother Vellies.

Ocasio-Cortez recently criticized Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin for urging Democrats to slow down the passage of a $3.5 trillion social spending bill, which she supports.

This year’s Met Gala comes after the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of last year’s event. The theme this year is “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”
