Continuity mistake: At the airport, Lily and Robin are talking off to the side away from others. During the scene, the cameras shoot from in front of the two actors and from behind Lily.

When the camera shot switches from front to behind, the headbands are switched on her head. The gold one is now closest to her forehead and the white one is behind.
