But Naomi wasn't as "unaware' as Aubrey thought. Later that day the actress herself, took to Instagram to share a snap of Aubrey taking the sneaky photo of her. Witness the greatness of Naomi's caption:

Now this week, almost one year after the interaction, Twitter fans made the connection between Aubrey's shots and Naomi's, which previously went almost unnoticed.

Long overdue, and yet, still epic.
