Lily Allen has returned to the stage when she performed at a Paris catwalk show.

It has been four years since the 27-year-old singer sang on stage, where she performed her hit Smile at the Etam lingerie show in Paris, during Paris Fashion Week, dressed in a floral frock.

Rita Ora, MIA, Lykke Li and Selah Sue also performed at the show.

Lily's two-month-old daughter Marnie Rose sat in the front row with her husband Sam Cooper.

Earlier, she tweeted her excitement at sharing the stage with Mark Ronson, who directed the show.

"Just did rehearsal for tomorrow's ETAM Show with @iamMarkRonson, still know the words to Smile, which is good. #mumback," she wrote.

Lily, who announced her retirement from music in 2009, has confirmed that she is back in the recording studio and has made new music with longtime collaborator Greg Kurstin. She is hoping to release a new album this year, which has seen her inspired by her experiences of motherhood.

"It's great to work at my own pace, with no commitments other than to make music. I'm excited to be heading back into the studio," she has said.
