Mariska Hargitay and husband Peter Hermann enjoy glamorous date night at the ... trends now
Law & Order: SVU producer-star Mariska Hargitay and Blue Bloods star Peter Hermann glammed up for a child-free date night at the 2023 Whitney Gala and Studio Party, which took place at the Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan on Tuesday.
The 59-year-old Emmy winner and her 55-year-old silver fox originally met in 2001 while working together on the set of her NBC police procedural, and they've been happily married for 18 years.
Mariska was so nervous when she first locked eyes with the 'distractingly handsome' Peter (born Karl) that she wound up awkwardly calling him a 'Kraut' for spending his first 10 years living in Germany.
'Our first date he asked me to go to church with him,' Hargitay dished on "The Drew Barrymore Show last year.
'And I was moving and I said, "Peter, I would love to but not today I am moving today." And he goes, "Oh come on it's an hour. It's an hour." It was so funny, I just couldn't resist so I went to church.

'And it was that day I remember we went to church, and I am crying and he thinks I am so moved by the sermon and I am crying because I am like, "I know I am going to marry him. I found my husband. I love him."'
Hermann kept things simple in a black suit while Miss Beverly Hills 1982 wore a short-sleeved beige frock featuring a painted embellishment on the maxi-skirt with a matching clutch selected by styling duo Meg Chapman + Jordan LaValle.
Hairstylist Chris McMillan coiffed Mariska's brunette locks and make-up artist Fiona Stiles applied the make-up behind her groovy red-framed sunglasses.
It's hard to believe Hargitay only 'got a clean bill of health' on May 2 from the doctors of Hospital for Special Surgery after recovering from a trimalleolar fracture aka breaking her ankle in three places.

Missing from the acting pair's side on Tuesday were their three children - son August Miklós
