Demi Moore is bringing the swan dress back—only this time, it's got a dazzling and elegant twist.

On Tuesday, the 61-year-old actress attended the premiere of Ryan Muprhy’s Feud: Capote vs. The Swans and stepped out in a gorgeous Balmain number as a tribute to Truman Capote’s famous 1966 Black and White Ball. The strapless gown, which is covered in sparkling black-and-white beads, features large bird feather details and white stripes patterned to look like a swan.

On Instagram, the actress shared photos of her outfit and wrote, "@feudfx premiere ready, courtesy of @bradgoreski @kristoferbuckle @djquintero. It was only fitting I wore this stunning @balmain dress."

Moore, who stars as Ann “Bang-Bang” Woodward in the upcoming limited series, paired the gown with black sandal heels and dangling earrings, wearing her sleek dark hair in a straight style.

On IG, Moore's stylist, Brad Goreski, confirmed that the ensemble was inspired by Capote. He shared footage of the star modeling her dress and wrote, "When the swan goes to the Black and White Ball. @demimoore stuns in a @balmain gown and @cartier jewels to the premiere of @feudfx styled by me!"

Fans who caught a glimpse of the rest of the cast during the red carpet premiere will notice that Moore wasn't the only one who referenced Capote's iconic 1966 party—which, fittingly, is included in an episode of Murphy's upcoming series. Naomi Watts, who plays Babe Paley, donned a lace Givenchy couture dress and accessorized with a swan-shaped Judith Lieber purse. Meanwhile, Chloë Sevigny (C.Z. Guest) appeared in a white dress by Christopher John Rogers, featuring a large bow. Molly Ringwald (Joanne Carson) wore a custom, mermaid black dress by Rodarte and Calista Flockhart (Lee Radziwill) turned heads in a stunning black-and-white Zuhair Murad dress. (Clearly, these swans understood the assignment.)

Murphy's FEUD: Capote vs. The Swans is the second installment in his FEUD anthology, and it's based on Laurence Leamer's book, Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era. Directed by Gus Van Sant, Max Winkler and Jennifer Lynch, the star-studded series will detail the falling out between Capote (played by Tom Hollander) and some of his most famous friends.

We can't wait to see more stunning looks from the Swans when the show premieres on Hulu on January 31.
