Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

AOC made her Met Gala debut with a fittingly bold statement piece that has already stirred up criticism from both sides of the political aisle. The controversial congresswoman wore a custom-made white gown by Brother Vellies designer Aurora James, who herself launched the 15 Percent Pledge in support of Black-owned businesses in 2020, emblazoned with the words "Tax The Rich" on the back.

Can't say she shied away from her target audience here.
