Once again Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland opened its gates to a star-studded crowd on Thursday evening. The annual Christmas extravaganza, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, saw a spectacular show of celebrities came down to show their support at the launch - including American actress Eva Longoria and X Factor boss Simon Cowell.

The Desperate Housewives star, 41, exuded heaps of style and glamour in a chic grey jumper, which was teamed with a classy black sleeveless jacket. She accessorised the attire with a navy fedora and a comfortable furry gloves. Her brunette tresses were worn loosely over her shoulders in sleek waves.
