It's all white on the night as new mum Christina Aguilera blazes back into the spotlight

Singer Christina Aguilera may have been out of the spotlight for nearly a year after having her first child, but she sure knows how to return to it.

Ten months after giving birth to her son Max, the Dirrty singer made her return to the stage in a series of eye-catching outfits at London's Albert Hall.

Including a Bianca Jagger style white suit and fedora hat, albeit accessorised with a bra top.

The 27-year-old singer guaranteed all eyes were on her as she arrived in a  Harlequin-esque Pucci tunic.

The blonde singer teamed her $2,095 turtleneck, silk dress with leather-look leggings and $700 Yves Saint Laurent purple Tribute heels as she arrived at the Africa Rising Festival at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Later she changed into a racy leopard-print leotard and cropped tuxedo, showing she's lost none of her pre-motherhood sex appeal.

The event marked Christina's first performance since taking time out for motherhood late last year.

She shared the stage with African supermodel Alek Wek and former US Secretary of State and retired general Colin Powell, who entertained the crowds with his funky dance moves.

The Africa Rising event aims to raise awareness of African issues, such as poverty and trade and hopes to find 'sustainable solutions'.

She revealed she was loving motherhood and was looking forward to having more children with her music executive husband Jordan Bratman.

She said: 'Absolutely, we'll definitely have more kids.

'I don't know (when). We'll play it by ear.'
