Betrayal and Glamour: Feud – Capote vs. The Swans

No one likes the feeling of being betrayed, but everyone loves a tale of betrayal. Ryan Murphy’s new season of Feud, titled Capote vs. The Swans, delivers that with all the seduction and glamour that comes with a story about New York socialites. This latest installment focuses on Truman Capote, the renowned novelist, and his sometimes endearing, sometimes manipulative relationship with the women who became known as his “swans.”

The Premiere and Costumes

The series debuted this week, following last week’s premiere with an after-party in the ballroom of the Plaza Hotel. The show not only offers a compelling storyline but also showcases dazzling costumes that serve as a time capsule of mid-century New York life as experienced by iconic social figures like Babe Paley, Slim Keith, C.Z. Guest, Lee Radziwill, Joanne Carson, and Ann Woodward.

Alongside costume designer Lou Eyrich, they delved into their fascination with swan lore and fashion.

Chloë also praised Lou’s talent for selecting the perfect vintage pieces, like a 1977 Givenchy suit dress, for specific occasions.

Fashion Highlights

During the podcast, Chioma and Chloe also dissected the standout moments from the recent couture shows, particularly John Galliano’s collection for Margiela Artisanal. They analyzed the body-enhancing shapes and silhouettes, as well as the striking doll-like makeup created by Pat McGrath.
