    It's taken social media by storm, and now I'm bringing it here to PO! Discuss about whether the dress is blue and black or white and gold. I personally believe it's blue and black with views being thrown off by lighting, but that's just me.

    Google it, It's blue and black. Lighting throws the black off to an orangey colour in terms of the RGB mix but the dress is still black.

    In terms of seeing the white/gold, its to do with White Balance.

    Since eyes pick up colours that the object absorbs, it disregards the other colours, for example yellow sunlight on a white shirt, your eye will disregard yellow to make the shirt look white.

    In the same way, some people's minds are tricked to disregard the blue and see white, and since that orange colour mix is on white in appears to be gold.

    That's pretty simplified though.

    To be honest when I first saw it I was just worried because colour aside, that is a cheap-looking/shit-tier dress.

    The picture is Blue and Black and so is the dress. I think a higher percentage of people see white or gold though.
    This was a dress at a wedding.

    Fun little video to explain it (if you're lazy like me and don't want to read an article on the science of it).

    But yeah, at first (when @Proof asked me about it), I was sure that it was white and gold (and that everyone who was saying blue and black were just lying because lol). Then, I was walking with a couple of my friends the next day and one of them pulled it up and it was blue and black rip :(

    also why would anyone wear that for a wedding dress

    I see both... but mostly white and gold. Atm I see white and gold tho hue. Often times if it pops up on my twitter feed or something when I'm not looking for it, I clearly see blue and black, but then I look at it directly and its white and gold again. But the white is pretty clearly tinted blue for me.
