After initial reports of on-set rivalry and rifts members of the Desperate Housewives cast are now recognised for being as inseparable off screen as they are on it, supporting each other at weddings, christenings, and other big moments. So it came as no surprise to see Felicity Huffman on hand to help close girlfriend Teri Hatcher celebrate her new modelling job for top American fashion label Badgley Mischka this week.

Mum of one Teri, who looked radiant and sunkissed in a polka dot frock, was clearly delighted to have her cast-mate on board for the party at a West Hollywood restaurant on Monday. The former Bond girl, who shot the new marketing campaign last month, has had a long relationship with design duo Mark Badgley and James Mischka. They pair created the gown she wore during her red carpet debut at the 1993 Emmys, and more recently dressed her for Eva Longoria's French nuptials in July.

Next up for the hard-working actress is a pilot she's developing for US television based on her book Burnt Toast. She's also apparently working on a reality TV show and writing her second book.
