 Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proudly posed with a fan who framed her Vanity Fair magazine cover despite backlash for wearing $14,000-worth of clothes in the cover shoot while condemning Trump's tax returns. 

The 31-year-old Representative beamed as snapped photos with her fan she met at a community Halloween event at Bicentennial Veteran Memorial Park in the Bronx.

Despite the monumental achievement, Ocasio-Cortez faced backlash for wearing $14,000- worth of clothes in her cover shoot, prompting critics to call her a 'hypocrite' fro criticizing Trump's tax payments while wearing expensive designer outfits herself. 

She posed in looks from from Aliette, Loewe, Carolina Herrera, and teetered on Christian Louboutin heels, all of which come with hefty price tags. 

The Congresswoman hit back on Thursday and accused Republicans of 'wilfully acting stupid' for assuming the outfits were her own, clarifying that the clothes were borrowed for the shoot.

She also joked that they could look as good as her if they 'don't be racist'. 

'Republicans are Very Mad (again) about my appearance. This time they’re mad that I look good in borrowed clothes (again),' she wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

'Listen, if Republicans want pointers on looking your best, I’m happy to share. Tip #1: Drink water and don’t be racist.'

The congresswoman claimed that the talk of her clothing in the shoot was all 'classic Republican strategy'. 

'The whole “she wore clothes in a magazine, let’s pretend they’re hers” gimmick is the classic Republican strategy of “let’s willfully act stupid, and if the public doesn’t take our performative stupidity seriously then we’ll claim bias",' she wrote.  

'GOP, get yourselves together. It’s sad.'  

 In the Vanity Fair interview, AOC compared herself to Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, claiming they have both been made the 'boogeyman' of their party by Republicans. 


The congresswoman - who is regularly branded a socialist for her far-left views - is photographed in current season silk suits from Aliette, Loewe, Carolina Herrera, and teeters on Christian Louboutin heels, all of which come with hefty price tags, in an array of poses which include playing with children in her native Bronx.  

The total estimated retail cost of her outfits is more than $14,000. 

In one portion of the interview, she said 'dressing the part has been an unexpected struggle, but it’s also a way to connect with constituents' while wearing an $800 dress and $1,450 earrings.

In her interview, she reveals that her family call her 'Sandy', complains that she and other women have been vilified by Republicans, talks about losing her father when she was a sophomore in college and says he'd be the 'first to call her a Communist' if he were alive. 

She also took a large hit at Trump over the reports of his tax payments. 

'These are the same people saying that we can’t have tuition-free public colleges because there’s no money when these motherf*****s are only paying $750 a year in taxes,' she said.

'Trump is the racist visionary but [Mitch] McConnell gets the job done. He doesn’t do anything without Trump’s blessing. Trump says, "Jump." McConnell says, "How high?" 

'Trump never does what McConnell says,' she fumes.
