Not too long ago, in March 2012, Ashlee Simpson served as bridesmaid for a friend's wedding in Palm Springs. The term "bridesmaid dress" usually makes us cringe, but Ashlee was a breath of fresh air in her soft-hued, printed halter gown, which she dressed up with a long pearl necklace. With wedding season in our midst, Ashlee has inspired us to find equally gorgeous halter gowns that can also be worn as bridesmaid dresses for all types of receptions, from fancy to beachy. Then when the party is over, you can rewear all of them for other dressy soirees, including a wedding you're not a part of. Step inside to see eight of our halter-gown picks inspired by Ashlee Simpson, then be sure to check out other celebs as bridesmaids.
