Well, hello Fantasia!

Season 3's American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino showed up to support Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez as they faced off for season 11's title Wednesday, and before Barrino even set foot inside L.A.'s NOKIA Theater she turned heads.

Greeting photographers and fans on the red carpet, Barrino — clad in a sparkly ill-fitting purple gown — narrowly escaped a wardrobe malfunction when her breasts came close to popping out of her dress.

And that wasn't the only fashion risk the singer — who became a mom for the second time earlier this year — took that night.

During Idol's live results show, Barrino, 27, donned a sequined black catsuit to duet on Elton John's "Take Me to the Pilot" with contestant Joshua Ledet, whom fans have lovingly dubbed 'Mantasia' because of their vocal similarities.
