Why can't more people be like this 'Red Carpet Woman'?

Why can't more people be like this 'Red Carpet Woman'?

Back in September, the people of Boston gathered around the Coolidge Corner Theatre for a red carpet event: the premiere of "Black Mass," the movie about notorious gangster Whitey Bulger, starring Johnny Depp.

Hundreds gathered to see Depp as well as co-stars Dakota Johnson, Rory Cochrane and Jesse Plemons walk the red carpet in hopes of grabbing a few photos of the stars - maybe even snap a selfie - to put up on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.

So as you can guess, every single person there was glued to their phones, viewing the event through a tiny smartphone screen instead of with their own eyes. Except one lady, who preferred to watch the red carpet event the good, old-fashioned way: with her own two eyes. Can you spot her?

Captured by Boston Globe staffer John Blanding back in September, the photo has since gone viral, being shared by one person in Utah which garnered more than 14,000 favorites and more than 12,000 retweets on Twitter.
