Ashlee Simpson's Backless Dress Brings Her To The Front Of The Ballet Pack (PHOTOS)

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?
