Hudson throws Christmas party for the stars

Kate Hudson threw a star-studded Christmas party on Friday night.

The 'Nine' actress – who split with her New York Yankees baseball star boyfriend Alex Rodriguez earlier this month – forgot her troubles with the lavish bash at her Californian home, which had been given a festive make-over with strands of tree light, reindeer statues in the garden and valet parking attendants dressed in Santa outfits.

Hollywood friends including Kate Beckinsale, Tobey Maguire, Fergie and Josh Duhamel – described by one guest as "lovey-dovey" – as well as Liv Tyler, Jason Statham and Kate's parents, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, attended.

Kate – who is well known for her yearly Halloween parties – was said to be in a very good mood and "played the perfect host".

A guest at the party told People magazine: "There were singers carolling to start the night and then a hip-hop DJ played later.

"The festivities continued into the wee hours before guests made their way home. She couldn't have been in a better mood."

While Kate was enjoying getting into the Christmas spirit, it was recently claimed that her New Year’s Eve plans have been ruined following her split from Alex.

A source explained: "They were both scheduled to appear together at several bashes. Obviously that's not happening now - she cancelled! She cancelled everything; she's not going to Miami at all. Alex is probably still going, and no doubt will be flirting up a storm - as he usually does."
