That's a hat trick: Charlotte Church completes week of weird outfits by wearing pink afro wig at South by Southwest festival

Charlotte Church has worn some rather surreal outfits while performing at South by Southwest Festival this week, but her latest one takes the biscuit.

The Welsh singer took to the stage on Friday night wearing a large pink afro wig.

The 27-year-old looked like a bad Jackson 5 impersonator as she performed at the Vevo Control Rooms.

While Charlotte's interesting headpiece may have stolen the show, that wasn't the end of her bizarre ensemble.

Continuing with the hippy-groove, the mother-of-two fastened down the wig with a black hairband and wore a floaty lilac kimono-style dress.

With some beaded bracelets on her wrist and a bottle of water in her hand Charlotte belted out some songs with the backing of a live band.

Her latest look completed a hat trick of strange and bizarre outfits that she has unleashed during a week long stay at the festival.

She unleashed an edgy avent-garde ensemble when she performed an intimate set on Wednesday evening and followed it up with yet another wacky ensemble on Thursday night.

Taking to the stage in Austin, Texas, for her second acoustic set, the Welsh songstress appeared to have opted for some form of bizarre, bat-inspired ensemble.

Sporting dramatic futuristic blue eye make-up, the 27-year-old singer ensured she certainly garnered attention in a black feather and lace-detail headpiece.

Pushing her brunette locks back from her face, the usual accessory featured wacky feathers jutting out at all angles.

The former child star swamped her curves in a somewhat unflattering black oversized tunic and kept her hair loose and unstyled around her shoulders.

In spite of her slightly unusual appearance, the Voice Of An Angel singer seemed to be her absolute element as she threw herself into the music and bashed away on a tambourine.

Ahead of the gig, she wrote on her Twitter page: 'Gig 1 @sxsw was a lot of fun... Looking forward to playing Rooftop on 6th later today at 8pm.'

The 27-year-old, who has crossed a number of musical genres, wore a series of coloured transfers on her face as she took to the stage for her debut gig at the annual festival.

And the Welsh singer, who shot to fame as a child opera star, recently credited her musician boyfriend Jonny Powell with inspiring her return to music.

She told The Observer: 'After [previous album] Back to Scratch, I was like, "I'm not doing this any more." I'd had enough. I was going to stay at home, be a full-time mummy, organise parties, learn to bake properly...

'He was always just writing. I got the bug back a little bit. Also, he's got this phenomenal, encyclopaedic memory of music. He's a proper, smart guy... [It's] like starting [my career] all over again.'

She needs to eat better and exercise. Then she could pull off any look she wanted but at the moment she looks unhealthy and bloated.

She looks ridiculous, the outfits also make her look as if she needs to lose some weight. Perhaps someone is trying too hard!
