In the words of Oscar Wilde, “life imitates art far more than art imitates life.” And the artistic and trailblazing legacy of Tiffany & Co.’s Jean Schlumberger was on full display at Tuesday night’s “Feud: Capote vs. The Swans” premiere at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City with Naomi Watts, Diane Lane and Calista Flockhart each wearing the American jewelry brand.
Naomi Watts — Barbara “Babe” Paley in the series — wore Jean Schlumberger by Tiffany Poid earrings, stitches bracelet, and rings; Diane Lane — Nancy “Slim” Keith in the series — wore a pendant in platinum with a pink tourmaline and diamonds, diamond stud earrings and Jean Schlumberger by Tiffany ribbon earrings, and rings; and Calista Flockhart — Lee Radziwill in the series — wore a Jean Schlumberger by Tiffany Lynn necklace and flame ear clips.

The show is the second season from creator Ryan Murphy’s “Feud” anthology series on FX and is a snapshot of the swans, their high-society socialite lives and their very public rift with novelist Truman Capote, played by Tom Hollander.
“We were thrilled to bring this extraordinary collection of jewels dating as far back as the 1950s to life at the premiere,” explained Victoria Reynolds, chief gemologist and vice president of High Jewelry Gemstone Acquisition, Tiffany & Co. “As one of the most gifted designers of the 20th century, it is no surprise that Babe Paley was an avid collector of Jean Schlumberger’s designs. Naomi Watts effortlessly uplifted Babe’s affinity to Schlumberger’s iconic designs. Cast members Diane Lane and Calista Flockhart also wore exceptional Jean Schlumberger by Tiffany pieces on the carpet, paying homage to his legacy of creating masterpieces of extraordinary depth and some of the world’s most vibrant designs.”
While the Ladies Who Lunch are known for their fashion, they made just as much an impact with their jewelry; as the influencers of their day, the socialites’ glamour endures — often serving as inspiration for today’s crew of American designers. The latest installment of Ryan Murphy’s hit anthology series premieres Jan. 31.
