Because it's so easy to get Audrey Hepburn and Nina Simone confused.

So Kenyan actress and Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o got super fancy for the Met Gala on Monday night.

And all was well until Vogue tried to low-key credit Audrey Hepburn for Nyong'o's gorgeous structural hairdo.

Say what, Vogue?

The online story, "Is Lupita Nyong’o the New Audrey Hepburn? Celebrating the Star’s Met Gala Hair," references the mag's 1963 shoot with Hepburn, in which she also wears a really high updo.

"The sculptural style is also reminiscent of the updo Audrey Hepburn sported in a 1963 Vogue shoot with Bert Stern," the author writes. "And the similarities between the two ingenues extend beyond hair; both, like Hepburn’s famous incarnation of Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, have mastered the art of transformation, from head to toe."

We guess they forgot when Nyong'o told Vogue's very own Andre Leon Talley that the inspiration came from "sculptural hairdos from all around the continent" and legendary singer Nina Simone?

But Nyong'o reminded them in the classiest of ways via an Instagram vid captioned, "Hair Inspiration. Check. @vernonfrancois @voguemagazine #metball2016."
