Age is clearly nothing but a number for Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay, who happily celebrated turning 50 on set in N.Y.C. Thursday, flaunting it with a pair of giant silver glasses announcing her milestone birthday.
Hargitay was all smiles as she accepted a pink rose, lily and daisy-covered birthday cake, Tweeting a photo of the colorful confection, which she noted was gluten-free.
Hargitay, who plays the tough and tender Sergeant Olivia Benson on the long-running show, now in its 15th season, has been a poster girl for embracing beauty and change as she grows older in the celebrity spotlight. She told Ladies' Home Journal last year that she was proud of her curves as a mother of three children, eschewing Hollywood's over-sexualized and unrealistic expectations of women.

"Oh, [President] Obama, he's got this one little move. I was like, I've got to watch this so I can imitate this move!" Jennifer Hudson told PEOPLE of the scene at First Lady Michelle Obama's 50th birthday party last weekend.
"They loved it. They enjoyed themselves, that's for sure," the Grammy and Oscar winner added.
The American Idol alum, 32, who caught up with PEOPLE at Carnival Cruise Lines' Carnival LIVE Concert Series launch on Wednesday, famously serenaded the president on his own 50th birthday in 2011. But on Saturday, she had the night off.
