New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made her fashion debut this week in a dazzling appearance at the annual Met Gala, wowing attendees of the $30,000-per-ticket event with a stunning gown that called for the government to "tax the rich."
Though the self-declared socialist has taken a lot of heat for wearing the bespoke Brother Vellies dress to the event, little attention has been paid to her shoe ensemble, which, according to Vogue, consisted of "a pair of red shoes from Brother Vellies, with long laces and bright flowers along the heel."
Those really pop! Judging from Brother Vellies's website, the company's line of ribbon-adorned high-heeled shoes hover around $615.
Assuming that the representative's footwear for the evening did not rise above that baseline, that mean's Ocasio-Cortez's shoes for the Met event cost significantly more than the low end of an American husband and wife's average monthly food budget, according to the USDA.
AOC truly is a socialist of the old school—and she cuts quite a handsome figure while she's at it!
