Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young rips off New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s controversial Met Gala dress ‘taxing the rich’ at Midwinter Ball

Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young adopted a bold style from New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at Wednesday’s Midwinter Ball.

Hanson-Young raised his eyebrows at the flashy Canberra, dressed in a white fishtail dress with the words ‘End gas and coal’ scrawled across the back.

It also featured a subtle trim printed with repeating words ‘end of coal and gas’.

The dress, which stabbed event sponsor Woodside Energy, was starkly reminiscent of the controversial dress worn by the MP at the 2021 Met Gala.

The left-leaning AOC activist ruffled some famous feathers at the chic New York event while wearing a white fishtail dress with the message “Tax The Rich” written in red on the back.

Her dress drew criticism, with many accusing her of “hypocrisy” by attending the opulent Met Gala wearing a left-wing equality slogan.

Ocasio-Cortez, whose policies champion social justice, free immigration and climate change awareness, was quick to defend her outfit, saying she wore it to bring “all classes” into the conversation about equality.

She also tweeted a photo of herself in the dress at the time, along with the words: “The medium is the message” — a concept Hanson-Young clearly embraced.

Like her American counterpart, Sarah Hanson-Young’s policies focus on climate action, refugee rights, social equality and diversity.

Posting to Twitter on Wednesday evening, Hanson-Young thanked the designer who made her controversial dress, before reminding fans:

Meanwhile, Green MP’s partner Adam Bandt Claudia Perkins also caused a stir with her politically charged outfit at the Midwinter Ball.

In the past, Ms. Perkins had had the word “coal kills” shaved off her head, while on Wednesday night she had that slogan as well as “gas kills” written in black and red all over her otherwise white dress.
