Stewart appears to become more and more perturbed as she continues to raise her hands to move her nonexistent locks away from her face, which makes us realize two things: first, that people who shave their heads apparently experience phantom hair syndrome, and second, how overwhelming and distracting it must be to stand in front of a thousand flashbulbs per second. The whole process, as pointed out by Buzzfeed, is actually kind of fascinating.

"Actually, you're right," Stewart said, adorably adding, "I messed that up." Since when is Stewart all of us?!

Just not on a red carpet.
