Chanel Has Itself a New Hatmaker, Reportedly [Updated]

One of Burris's creations.

Twenty-three-year-old Parsons grad Gigi Burris is said to have been snapped up by Chanel as their new resident milliner. According to Burris's website, she's a fan of using alligator skin, particularly when it's sourced from reptiles caught near her parents' home in Florida. So, in other words, she must get some interesting care packages. Update: Gigi Burris has not confirmed her appointment, and states that the original source falsely reported this story ( has taken down their post about it). But for the sake of fashionable heads everywhere, we still hope it's true.
