Ashlee, who looked nothing like she did in her early years of fame, showed off a super angular and fat-free face and looked painfully thin in her leather leggings and blousy, embellished top as she sat in the audience at the Richard Chai show.
According to BuzzFeed, no one recognized the Pieces of Me singer, with at least four people asking, “Who the hell is that?” about Simpson, who was sitting in the front row.
"The blonde woman, do you know her name?" a small woman asked quietly, curious about the herd of photographers fighting to get photos of Simpson in the front row.
"Wait...that's Ashlee Simpson?" someone else said skeptically. "I don't think so."
One paparazzi agency, even misidentified Simpson as Ashley Tisdale in their photo captions!
