Normally overshadowed by her famous sister, Ashlee Simpson made quite the impression at a red carpet event for the American Ballet Theatre on Monday. The 28-year-old singer and occasional television personality wore a backless black lace dress by Alice + Olivia and emerald green earrings by Ocnarf Sairutsa.

Simpson's glamorous look inspired Alice + Olivia's designer, Stacey Bendet, to gush about the star over Twitter:
