I just have to say Ashlee Simpson looked STUNNING in this gorgeous black lace Alice + Olivia backless gown which she wore to the American Ballet Theater Spring Gala in NYC Monday night. The emerald earrings and the black and gold clutch complete the outfit perfectly, along with her hair pulled up out of the way in soft waves so that the focus stayed on the dress. When I saw these pics I thought, "damn, girl!" and I almost forgot about the time she lip synced on Saturday Night Live and did that awkward hoedown dance. Remember that?
