Mariska Hargitay was on hand at the Museum of the Moving Image salute to Alec Baldwin on Feb. 28 in New York in a decadent Carolina Herrera gown.

The "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" stunner chose the frock from the designer's Spring 2011 collection and added a simple black Nancy Gonzales clutch and Verdura jewelry.

The intricate Korean-inspired dress -- which featured embroidery and printed details -- was belted with a traditional obi-like belt.

The event was packed with some of Hollywood's funny faces: Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon, Ben Stiller, Richard Gere, and Kristen Wiig were amongst the stars who honored the "30 Rock" star, who recently celebrated success at the SAG Awards.
