Sylvana Ward Durrett

Director of Special Events, Vogue. New York

Sylvana Ward Durrett has been a veteran at Vogue for nearly a decade, starting her career at the most iconic magazine of all time as the assistant to Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour. Now she’s one girl with a full plate: her responsibilities include producing over thirty events a year, including the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards Dinner and the annual Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As the girl behind the annual ‘Oscars of fashion,’ her style is the epitome of effortless chic, mastering the art of putting together envy-defying outfits on a daily basis. Durrett manages to bring a certain high-impact polish to easy breezy looks, making her the ultimate Vogue-ette. When she was featured in’s "Five Days, Five Looks, One Girl" feature, her outfits and unique way of putting herself together piqued our interest even further. We finally got to snoop inside her closet, full of bold patterns, bright colors, and a pretty extensive shoe collection. Lucky for you, we don’t mind sharing.
