Having recently posted about incredible mamma to be Sylvana Ward Durrett’s 5 days- 5 outfits, I think it would be more than appropriate to post some stills from inside her wardrobe – via The Coveteur.
Sylvana Ward Durrett has been a veteran at Vogue for nearly 8 years, starting her career at the most iconic magazine of all time as the Assistant to the Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour. Her determination and spunkiness helped her climb the ranks at American Vogue, moving into the fashion department as the Accessories Editor and eventually landing feet first in the role of Director of Special Events, a title she currently maintains.
I love this photo because it includes two of my favorite things in my apartment and closet: my Stubbs and Wooton skull and bones velvet slippers and my husband’s record player (he has never been so proud of anything in his life). The slippers are my Friday, wear-to-work staples. So comfy and great with a pair of boyfriend jeans. The necklace is vintage, a great statement piece to pair with a day or night look.
This was one of my favorite seasons from Balenciaga. Such a vibrant print and it never goes out of style. I wear it with opaque tights in winter and with a bare leg and stiletto in summer. The clutch is a perfect statement piece for summer and fits everything!
Clutches are a necessity for me. I have so many different types and colors and I continue to collect! The brights pictured here make me happy every time I carry them!
This Chanel clutch literally goes with me to nearly every event. The iridescent midnight blue mixes with most evening looks, casual or formal. Shoes are Miu Miu. I can never get enough of studs!
I’m a maniac for a mini. Enough said.
Vuitton bow pump with sequin heel. There are no words, they are just…incredible. I knew I could not live without them…but then again I feel that way about every pair of shoes.
I’m a huge fan of Jason Wu. He is an old friend, I love him and I love the way his clothes fit. He actually custom made my dress for the Costume Institute last year (my first Met Ball as Director of Special Events!). I felt like the belle of the ball!
When you work at Vogue you are acutely aware of the fact that color always looks better! Whether it’s on the page or on your body. So, needless to say, I have a rainbow of colors in my closet from shoes to dress to clutches and tights!
This is a Céline top actually and it goes with a matching white lace calf length skirt. It so clean and simple and can be worn as a separate over my leather pants or tucked into a wide leg trouser. Ms. Philo truly has the Midas touch. Céline is so chic right now!
These were a Christmas Gift from Alexis Bittar and given the biter cold this winter, I never leave home without them. Plus, they don’t mess up your hair like winter hats do…..
Another Jason Wu! I wore this to the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards Dinner in November and got tons of compliments.
The dress is Roberto Cavalli from a few seasons back and I am absolutely in love with it. Every time I bring it out for an event I get butterflies! I love the flapper feel but I always add a touch of edge to modernize it a bit. For example with the Lanvin chain anklet heel pictured here. The chain and leather strap detail are just the right touch. The Chloe rose gold evening bag speaks for itself. It is an evening staple and goes with just about any look!
