Stretching the meaning of matching

This might be a bit of a stretch on the Yahoo! Style home page:

match-sty-hp-2

The editor claims four people in that picture match. If she means they are all wearing white shirts, she’s correct — as long as she ignores the fact that two are wearing a black tuxedo, one is wearing a red suit, and another is wearing a blue suit, and the shoes are all different, and the ties are different. But other than that, they all match exactly!
