Russell, who’s in a relationship with her Americans costar Matthew Rhys, chose a plunging long-sleeved Monique Lhuillier gown that matched the red carpet and rose wall at the Beacon Theatre. The crepe dress’ silver embellishment on the shoulders and sleeves, which were finished with bow tie cuffs, complemented her metallic Emm Kuo clutch and silver Giuseppe Zanotti Design sandals, visible underneath her daring thigh-high slit. The mom to River, 9, and Willa, 4, wore her hair in a low bun that allowed her silver Atelier Swarovski by Peter Pilotto earrings to shine.

They are always snapping pictures of the baby, and family and friends have been sending gifts.”
