Ladies and gentlemen, Ashlee Simpson is back! Literally.

We may have mistaken her for Ashley Tisdale back at New York Fashion Week, but Ashlee made a dramatic entry to the American Ballet Theater's opening in New York City on Monday evening. Jessica's kid sister shut it down in a black lace backless dress with feather detailing at the waist.

This aint the scene chick we used to know. Though she stuck to rock's signature non-color, Ashlee styled her black Alice + Olivia gown with dangling emerald earrings and a windswept low ponytail.

No way we're mistaking this style star for anyone else this time around. We're hoping for more Ashlee appearances in the near future -- how about you?
