Matthew Williamson lights up

For Kids Company

The was no shortage of Christmas cheer at Aqua Shard last night, as Matthew Williamson and Gwyneth Paltrow hosted an intimate dinner to celebrate the unveiling of the designer’s Christmas tree in aid of Kids Company.

And Williamson couldn't help but share this exclusive selfie with ELLE, showing off his work. (That's a Sienna wash, for you Instagram-o-holics.) The baubles he designed especially for the project will be auctioned off to raise funds for the charity.

'Had a wonderful night tonight with the inspirational Camilla from Kids Company and Gwyneth Paltrow,' he has captioned the shot. 'Thanks for your help Gwyneth. X'.

Camila Batmanghelidjh, the inimitable director of Kids Company, thanked guests for coming and cited Gwyneth and her husband Chris Martin as excellent supporters of the charity.

Gwyn's very attendance is testament to that - she had an eye-wateringly early call time this morning on the set of her new film, Mortdecai, in which she stars with Johnny Depp and Paul Bettany.

Well, someone's got to do it...
