Brigitte Nielsen cosied up to husband Mattia Dessi at an afterparty to celebrate Italian filmmaker Giancarlo Giannini’s Hollywood Walk Of Fame star.
The actress, 56, looked incredible in white jeans and a matching trench which she teamed with a camel-coloured top and matching court shoes.
Mattia, 44, wore a black and white shirt tucked into black jeans and smart shoes as he beamed alongside his wife.
The handsome chap has been married to Brigitte since 2006, and they are parents to daughter Frida, four.
Frida is Dessi’s only child, while Brigitte is also a mom to her four sons Raoul Meyer Jr, 27, Douglas Meyer, 29, Killian Gastineau, 32, and Julian Winding, 38.

A moment: Giancarlo receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame
Brigitte and Mattia mingled with the stars at the event was held at Eugenio Lopez’s home and celebrated the work of Giancarlo.
Giancarlo spoke to Variety about his career ahead of the big day and he was asked how he would you describe his acting method.
He replied: ‘I once met Marlon Brando in New York, we were supposed to do a film together, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. We were in Central Park. He had seen Love and Anarchy and he wanted to work with me.
‘I asked Brando: “What’s your secret?” He said: “I don’t read the script.” He was right. I also asked Marcello Mastroianni if he read scripts. And he told me: “I read them before going to bed, they put me to sleep like a charm.”
‘That was a big contrast with me. Up until then I read scripts very meticulously, every syllable. But after meeting Brando and Mastroianni I changed my ways a bit. I figured if those guys are the masters, then the less you know, the more you know.’
He famously got his big break in the theater when Franco Zeffirelli cast him in Romeo and Juliet.
Then he got a smaller part with Anna Magnani in Giovanni Verga’s La Lupa.
