After posing for some solo pictures Keri joined Noah Emmerich, Joel Fields, Joe Weisberg, and Matthew Rhys for a cast photo on the red carpet. After the screening, guests headed across the street for an elegant soiree at the Palm Court at the Plaza. Gala tables were set up across the court and guests were able to enjoy a buffet style dinner. For dessert, cookies, mini cheesecakes, pastries, chocolates, and berries topped in whipped cream were served.

The music was great. The DJ played a mix of hip-hop, throwback classics, reggaeton and pop. Everyone was dancing and having so much fun. Keri was spotted chatting with guests and mingling. We also said hello to "House of Cards" star Sakina Jaffrey.

Be sure to tune in to FX on February 26 at 10 PM to see a brand new episode of the show.

Show Synopsis courtesy of FX: "The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. The arranged marriage of "Philip" (Matthew Rhys) and "Elizabeth Jennings" (Keri Russell), who have two children – 14-year-old "Paige" (Holly Taylor) and 11-year-old "Henry" (Keidrich Sellati), who know nothing about their parents’ true identity – grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War and the intimate, dangerous and darkly funny relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control."
