Kate Hudson was absent on Tuesday evening, but Tess Daly did a passable impression when she seized a photo opportunity with the Hollywood star’s glamorous mother, Goldie Hawn.

The veteran actress, who is the Founder and Board Chair of the Hawn Foundation – an educational charity geared towards developing emotional and literacy skills in children, was hosting a party at popular London club Annabels.

Not surprisingly it was a very glamorous affair, with the stunning 68-year-old mingling with the host of stars in attendance.

Stepping out that evening Goldie looked stunning in a smart black evening dress as she posed for a fun snap alongside bubbly TV presenter Tess, who arrived at Berkeley Square on the arm of husband Vernon Kay.

Like Goldie, Tess opted for a classic black evening dress – although hers stopped some way short of her knees, thus revealing a pair of nicely toned legs.

The 44-year-old Strictly Come Dancing co-host completed her look with a pair of strappy peep-toe heels, while a matching leather handbag – held in both hands as she rubbed shoulders with the Hollywood star  - finished things off.

Goldie, who looked radiant despite only flying into London that morning, was in good spirits at the event and seemed particularly pleased to see Ruby Wax.

The comedienne and author was seen making Goldie laugh as they chatted away in the well-known venue.

Pop-star Pixie Lott provided entertainment for the evening and no doubt performed her new single Nasty.

The 23-year-old looked ever so chic for the occasion wearing a white buttoned up two piece, while her blonde hair was pushed off her face with a pink Alice band.

After her performance she was treated to a big hug from Goldie, who had look on admiringly throughout.

When it came to time to go Goldie was seen swathed in a white faux fur coat as she made her exit at 2am carrying a single yellow rose.

Earlier in the day Goldie touched down in London to fulfil her role as the Founder and Board Chair of the Hawn Foundation – a children’s charity.

The charity says their mission is to ‘improve the overall well-being of children, youth and adults by equipping them with vital social and emotional literacy skills needed to navigate 21st century challenges’.

Goldie took to Twitter to tell her followers why she was in England’s capital, saying: ‘Just arrived in London for my http://hawnfoundationuk.org  fundraiser at Annabel's! Looking forward with gratitude.’

In her Hawn Foundation biography, Goldie explained she started the charity because she was, ‘alarmed by increases in school violence, youth depression and suicide, and the persistent failure of the education system to help children cope with increasingly stressful lives’.

The Academy Award winning actress's appearance comes just two days after she presented an award at Sunday’s prestigious Oscars.
