Those of you who watched the Vogue livestream of last night’s Met Gala red carpet probably heard photographers yelling some pretty hilarious and absurd things in the background (something that you often get to hear at fashion shows too if you’re lucky enough to be near the photo pit).
Some examples: “Could you text somewhere else please would that be possible?!” and “That shot would have looked great except for that idiot behind you,” and “It’s Rage Against the Machine” when Florence Welch walked in.
Perhaps the dumbest of all, however, was when they all started yelling “Zoe!” at Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing’s date, supermodel Joan Smalls, mistaking her, we assume, for Zoe Saldana, who was not there. The model, who looked incredible, tweeted:
I can’t believe it. Photographers at the met need glasses. We don’t all look the same.

Sigh. Interestingly, Smalls and Saldana wore the same Balmain dress last year. So, um, maybe the photogs are just really up on Balmain’s celebrity following and that was the reason for the mistake? We wish.
