Ashlee Simpson hosted the Samsung Galaxy S III event in New York City yesterday evening, following the LA party last month.

The mobile phone enthusiast wore a sassy look from Alice + Olivia.

A simple white smocked blouse was paired with some red-hot leather shorts.

I’m not surprised to be disappointed by the shoe choice, but I’m really narked by the half-tucked-in, half-out blouse.

David Beckham gets away with it because he’s hot.
