The 67-year-old pop icon looked out of this world in tribal body paint, straw skirt and a bright headdress as she performed on the main stage, with an energetic set which included pole dancing, gyrating and hula hooping.

As a former fashion model, diva Jones has long been renowned for her cutting-edge style and outrageous outfits, inspiring fellow musicians from Annie Lennox to Lady Gaga.

In 2013, she was named by The Guardian as one of their 50 best-dressed over-50s, with a nod to her love of distinctive millinery and "stage outfits which would make Rihanna blush".
