Demi Moore is set to star as one of the Swans in the upcoming FX series Feud: Capote vs. The Swans, the second season of Ryan Murphy’s anthology TV series, Feud. In honor of her latest project, the 61-year-old actress wore a black-and-white swan gown to the Tuesday New York City series premiere at the Museum of Modern Art.

The Theme of ‘Feud: Capote vs. The Swans’

Following the first season, which centers on the rivalry that existed between Oscar winners Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during and after the making of their psychological thriller film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, Feud: Capote vs. The Swans tells the true story of Truman Capote’s downfall from his social circle after writing a roman à clef that exposed his influential friends.

Star-Studded Premiere: Moore and Co-stars Embrace Black and White Theme

Demi Moore appeared on the red carpet alongside her co-stars Naomi Watts, Calista Flockhart, Diane Lane, Chloe Sevigny, Molly Ringwald, and Tom Hollander, who all dressed in black and white, presumably in homage to the Black and White Ball hosted by Truman Capote in 1966.

The Ghost actress, however, made a statement by literally interpreting the show’s title.

Demi Moore’s Striking Swan-Inspired Gown by Balmain

Demi Moore dazzled in a black-and-white sequined gown by Balmain, known for its sleek, sophisticated, and elegant eveningwear. Moore’s dress perfectly captured the essence of the upscale French fashion house.

The gown’s entire length was covered in black and white sequins meticulously adorned in swirls to resemble a swan. Large feather-inspired details and a swan head were among the avian-inspired elements on the bodice, finished with a strapless sweetheart neckline.

The gorgeous gown had a flattering form-fitting silhouette that hugged every inch of Moore’s curves. A rear slit in the column skirt allowed for a comfortable stride and showed off her black, extremely high chunky heels.

Elegant Accessorizing and Styling Details

Continuing the evening’s glitzy 1960s theme, Bruce Willis’s ex-wife accessorized with Cartier bracelets, rings, and dangling diamond earrings in 18k white gold.

She was styled by Brad Goreski, who shared the inspiration behind Demi Moore’s look on Instagram. “When the swan goes to the Black and White Ball,” he captioned the clip.

Goreski’s high-profile clients include Kaley Cuoco, Rashida Jones, and Jenna Dewan.

DJ Quintero styled Demi Moore’s shiny raven hair, sleek straight with a middle parting, while Kristofer Buckle gave her a sultry makeup look with soft, smokey eyeshadow, pink blush, and pink lipstick.

Ashton Kutcher’s ex-wife stopped by The Drew Barrymore Show’s studio a few hours before the show’s New York City premiere. She looked sharp in a long black and white plaid coat, a fitted black mock neck sweater, and a matching plaid midi skirt with a side slit that showed her toned leg.

Brad Goreski kept the look sophisticated by pairing the monochrome ensemble with coordinating mules by Malone Souliers. Moore’s outfit had a retro feel enhanced by her shoes’ white upper and black toe caps.

The “Blythe” leather mules have pointed toes adorned with bows and are finished with slim elasticated straps and 3.5-inch heels. You can get these chic mules for $770 at Mytheresa.

The day before, Demi Moore was pictured arriving at The Whitby Hotel with her dog Pilaf nestled inside a black sling bag draped across her chest.

Moore opted for a Fendi ensemble consisting of an icy blue turtleneck sweater, loose-fitting sage green pants, and a gray trench coat.

She kept the look cohesive by matching her accessories with her winter outfit. She put on a pair of pastel blue pumps for her feet and slung a black, blue, and brown Fendi bag over her arm.

Demi finished her ensemble with anklets, a few rings, and marbled earrings by Assael to go with her black-framed aviators.

Demi Moore Is Ann Woodward in Feud: Capote vs. The Swans

Demi Moore portrays Ann Woodward in the FX limited series Feud: Capote vs. The Swans.

A nightclub dancer and a radio actress, Woodward rose to prominence in New York high society following her marriage to banking heir William Woodward Jr. in 1943. She was later suspected of murder after she shot and killed her husband in 1955, claiming that she had mistaken him for a burglar.

As a result, she became a cause célèbre and was eventually kicked out of high society. La Côte Basque, an excerpt from Truman’s unfinished novel Answered Prayers, was published in Esquire in 1975.

One of the characters features a pseudonymized but identifiable Woodward, accused of her husband’s murder. Ann Woodward took cyanide and killed herself three days before it was published.
