The Best Celebrity Looks At The Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans

Do you think there was huge celebrity email chain leading up to the Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans premiere, with each A-lister sending a snap of their look for the evening and comparing notes? It seems so, considering everyone on the star-studded cast understood the assignment, dressing perfectly on-theme for the occasion, filling the carpet with festive black-and-white, swan-themed ensembles.

Yes, on Jan. 23, the star-studded cast, which includes Demi Moore, Naomi Watts, and Chloë Sevigny (just to name a few), gathered at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City to celebrate the series’ latest episodes. Moore’s look, for example, really hit the nail on the head — she arrived in a sequin Balmain number with a swan on it. Meanwhile, Sevigny embraced the season’s bow trend, arriving in a Christopher John Rogers white gown, which featured a larger-than-life take on the ladylike detail.

For those who may have missed the FX series’ first season Feud: Bette and Joan (which was about the rivalry between Hollywood stars Bette Davis and Joan Crawford), the network is now releasing its second installment consisting of eight episodes on Jan. 31. Based on Laurence Leame’s bestselling book Capote's Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song For an Era, the show follows American journalist Truman Capote and the society women — who he referred to as his “swans” — the writer befriended in the ‘50s and ’60s. The story chronicles Capote’s betrayal of the socialites after he exposed their scandalous secrets in his unfinished novel, Answered Prayers.
