It was a glamorous night out for the cast of Feud: Capote vs. the Swans in New York City last night. The stars—including Demi Moore, Calista Flockhart, Chloë Sevingy, and more—attended the premiere of the show at MOMA, followed by an afterparty at (where else?!) the Plaza Hotel.
The show, based on Capote's Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era by Laurence Leamer, premieres next week. “It was a story about ambition, friendship, and writer’s block,” Ryan Murphy tells T&C about adapting the story for television. “It was a story about how you top yourself, and whether you even can. And it was, at its core, a story about relationships between men and women, specifically gay men and their girlfriends. A feud is never about hatred; a feud is about pain, always. For the show to work, there had to be a great split that was about heartache as opposed to hatred, and Babe and Truman were at the center of that."
Here, see all the best photos from the premiere:
Moore plays Ann Woodward in the show. For the premiere, she wore a swan-inspired Balmain gown.
