Vogue's Style Profile: Sylvana Ward Durrett

Sylvana Ward Durrett wears a yellow Derek Lam short suit. (And I LOVE IT!)

On May 2, style-ites and socialites alike will attend the Costume Institute Gala at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Conducting all of the work behind the scenes in preparation for the big night is none other than Vogue's Director of Special Events Sylvana Ward Durrett. recently profiled her week of style leading up to the big night, which will honor the works of Alexander McQueen, on their website feature "Five Days, Five Looks, One Girl." Here are a few shots from that feature for you to peruse.

Nude patent leather, color-blocked heels from Nina Ricci

Peter Pilotto skirt and top, Gryphon trench, Proenza Schouler belt and Altuzarra booties

GORGEOUS turquoise Givenchy handbag

Derek Lam wide leg pants and silk blouse

Andrew Marc brown leather jacket and Valentino clutch

H&M trench dress, Rag & Bone blouse and Isabel Marant pumps

Once again, I absolutely love this feature. It prompted me to check out Peter Pilotto's items on Net-A-Porter. His pieces, though out of my own price range, prove to be ablaze with bright patterns cut in beautiful silhouettes. Also, I adore Isabel Marant but had never seen her fabulous cuffed pumped before today. And, of course, I can't forget to profess my adoration for every single Derek Lam piece, ESPECIALLY that adorable short suit. What a youthful twist on prim skirt suits from days of old!
