Met Gala Attendees’ Dresses Are More Revealing Than They Wanted Them To Be

Leading ladies of politics and culture flashed more than just skin at New York City’s exclusive Met Gala fashion fundraiser on Monday night — they also broadcast progressive political statements on their designer gowns.


The red carpet photos gave Americans a telling snapshot of their liberal elite, for better or worse.


Per usual, the mainstream media and celebrity watchers generally gushed over the Met Gala’s megawatt display of fame and fashion in the name of social justice.

Journalists and activists on Twitter cheered New York Democratic Reps. Carolyn Maloney and, especially, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for showing up in equality-themed ensembles.

Class war: But conservatives commentators cringed at what they saw as the absurdity of liberals posing as avatars of the marginalized while enjoying the trappings of wealth and power.

Many on the right noted that the congresswomen, like other Democrats before them, set aside their COVID-19 concerns for the event — which didn’t appear to be an option for the event staff.

Girl power: Undaunted by their critics, the gala attendees’ accentuated their sartorial critiques of the patriarchy with ornate expressions of female empowerment.

And it wasn’t just biological women.

After the Met Gala, Ocasio-Cortez addressed her “haters” on Twitter, framing her attendance of the event as a public service and a victory for black immigrant women.

 Even conservative critics had to admit the night, if not the culture, belonged to AOC.
