The second season of FX’s “Feud” charts the fascinating lives of Truman Capote’s muses including Lee Radziwill, Babe Paley and C.Z. Guest. Subtitled “Capote vs. The Swans,” Naomi Watts, Molly Ringwald, Demi Moore and Chloë Sevigny star as the author’s high society pals, whose secrets he would eventually expose in the 1975 Esquire article “La Côte Basque, 1965.” The latest installment of Ryan Murphy’s hit anthology series premieres Jan. 31.
Moore, Ringwald and more stars turned Tuesday’s premiere into a Black and White Ball, evoking the dress code of Capote’s legendary 1966 shindig. Many attendees opted for feathers and frills, adding avian touches to their custom couture.
