WATCH: Artist claims AOC’s “Tax the Rich” Dress was a knock-off of their design

Artist “The Velvet Bandit” claims AOC’s “Tax the Rich” Met Gala dress was a knock-off of their design.

The Velvet Bandit wrote on Instagram writes, “@AOC stepped out at the Met Gala wearing a dress designed by @aurorajames that looks hella similar to my design. 😳”

The artist also wrote on their website “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stepped out at the Met Gala wearing a dress designed by Aurora James that looks hella similar to my design, Tax The Rich. I love a good collab (especially with other badass women) so why not take over the world together?” Their design has very similar lettering in red as a face mask over Abraham Lincoln.
