President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a State Dinner for Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the White House on Tuesday, and only a select number of politicians, dignitaries, industrialists and celebrities were invited.

The short guest list included Keri Russell and her Americans' co-star, and boyfriend, Matthew Rhys, who dressed to impress. Russell rocked a black and gold gown while Rhys donned a traditional, fitted tux.

Not only did the couple, who share a 2-month-old son, manage to snag a ticket to the wildly exclusive event, they also sat at the first family's table.

Rhys, sporting a bushy beard, sat immediately next to the First Lady, and the two were spotted laughing and talking throughout the black tie event.

The actors -- who happen to play deep-cover Russian spies on their hit FX drama -- were the only actors on the entire 200-person guest list.

It certainly wasn't the first time a celeb has attended a State Dinner. (Remember when Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively stepped out to honor Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Sasha Obama adorably freaked out?)

With only six months left in the White House, this is rumored to be the Obama's final State Dinner -- although that hasn't been officially confirmed by the President's aides -- and the cute couple continued to prove just how adorable they really are.
