    Now, Chloe and Aubrey have worked together on SNL before, so it's likely that this is a bit. However, the line between bit and not-a-bit became a tad blurry after this.

    When asked about her dress, Aubrey continues, "This is Stella McCartney. Sustainable Stella." Stella herself then adds, "McCartney."

    Chloe then begins her next question by saying, "Now, Stella, you took over from Karl Lagerfeld" with a laugh. Stella interjects by asking, "Are you not taking this seriously?"

    "I am!" Chloe shrieks, adding, "Okay, I'll be more serious." Stella then says, "This is very serious. Oh my God, don't do that."

    Some interpreted this interaction at face value, i.e. minimum bits, maximum awkwardness:

    This was so uncomfortable for no reason lol

    Stella McCartney asking the host “are you not taking this seriously?” Cause the host didn’t know who she or aubrey plaza is was…. Iconic

    Whereas others went for the 100%-bit interpretation:

    this was a bit, everyone please learn some common sense

    Perhaps the truth is somewhere in between!
