UNITED NATIONS (AP) — "House of Cards" star Robin Wright has given the real-life U.S. ambassador to the United Nations a "power dress" fitting of the name.

In the latest season of the popular Netflix series, Wright plays the ambassador role that Samantha Power takes on every day. The two spoke together Friday at the Women in the World conference, and Wright pulled out one of her dresses from the show and tossed it to the ambassador.

Power laughed and said, "Watch out, Russians."

She added, "I think I would be more effective if I had Claire Underwood's wardrobe."

The two discussed their interests in Africa, particularly the Congo.
