Whoopi Goldberg was stunning at the Oscars on Sunday, wearing an off-the-shoulder charcoal-colored gun, her hair in a striking up-do.

A style website--Total Beauty--also thought Whoopi Goldberg was looking fine on Oscars night--so fine, in fact, they mistook her for Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah Winfrey doesn't have any tattoos. While watching the Oscars with some friends, BFF Gayle King shared Oprah's reaction to being mistaken for Whoopi Goldberg--indicating it was a case of "all black people looking alike."

"@Oprah & favorite daughter watching #Oscars & seeing @totalbeautyeditors snafu! We all love @whoopigoldberg but we don't all look alike Jeeeze!" King captioned her post of a very confused-looking Oprah Winfrey.

Total Beauty was mortified at their gaffe. They apologized to both Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg for their mistake.

The folks at Total Beauty went on to say they planned to make a donation to make up for the snafu.

They later asked others to match their donations.

Whoopi Goldberg wasn't concerned about the gaffe, saying it was an "honest mistake."

Did you catch Whoopi Goldberg at the Oscars on Sunday? Her sketch about the mop was hilarious.
