Banks and Vanessa Hudgens share a Gigi Burris Millinery

The two friends did a millinery swap with the Gigi Burris veiling that was seen on Hudgens during her red carpet arrival at “China: Through The Looking Glass” Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 4, 2015 in New York City. 

Hudgens was wearing the “Gemini Violette” veiling by Gigi Burris Millinery on the red carpet. The look, handcrafted by the 27 year-old New York City based Burris, consists of black velvet veiling delicately studded with Swarovski crystals and paired with the milliner’s signature hand-twisted biot feather detailing. Later in the evening the two friends swapped looks, Banks posed in images posted on Instagram with Hudgens and Selena Gomez wearing the veil by Burris that Hudgens had worn earlier in the night to the Gala. Banks did the after-party circuit with Gomez and Hudgens wearing the “Gemini Violette” veiling by Gigi Burris Millinery.
