In the latest issue, for which the New York congresswoman is a cover star, Ocasio-Cortez dons designer clothing for the cover, as is custom, and in additional photos taken for the issue.

Though Ocasio-Cortez does not get to keep the clothes, she generated backlash online for the photoshoot from conservatives who called her out over the expensive clothing and accused her of being hypocritical given her progressive platform.

I wonder what brand of socialism allows you to get a $14,000 suit for Vogue photoshoots. See you soon, Alexandria. Looking forward to dismantling your socialist agenda in my finest Macy’s clothes like normal working people. https://t.co/KT2olZHqbq

What a scam. And how can she suddenly afford $14,000 outfits. https://t.co/qXTdGGvJ8v

However, Ocasio-Cortez pushed back against the criticism not long after on Twitter on Thursday, writing: “Republicans are Very Mad (again) about my appearance. This time they’re mad that I look good in borrowed clothes (again).”

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

“100 percent worth it, would do it again,” she wrote in a series of tweets. “(& I don’t know if you’ve been in a photoshoot Laura, but you don’t keep the clothes.)” 

“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.’ GOP, get yourselves together. It’s sad,” she said.

This is not the first time Ocasio-Cortez has fielded heat from conservatives for her wardrobe choices.

She also knocked the right-leaning New York Post earlier this year after it published a story about a designer dress she wore during an appearance “The View,” saying then that the outlet was “just mad that you can look good fighting for working families.”

She also shot back at a journalist of the conservative-leaning Washington Examiner in 2018 after he said clothing she wore on Capitol Hill didn’t look like that of a person who “struggles.”
