It’s the dress that broke both the Internet.
This week, someone posted a picture of this dress on Tumblr asking a seemingly simple question: What color is this? Half of the responders thought that the dress was white and gold, while others clearly saw that it was blue and black.
And then a war broke out.
So it’s deff white and gold but then I just saw it as black and blue too…..TRIIIPPPPYYYYY #imdonewiththeinternet— Zendaya (@Zendaya) February 27, 2015
(There actually is a scientific explanation to the whole debacle. In reality, the dress is blue and black, but in the photo, a ray of sunlight is hitting the dress. Some people’s brains compensate for the sunlight, meaning that they recognize that the dress is a slightly washed out blue and black. “Other people are deciding that it is less illumination on a white/gold dress. It is in shadow, but more reflective,” said Cedar Riener, associate professor of psychology at Randolph-Macon College, to Buzzfeed.)
Science aside, how are you seeing the dress? Is it blue and black? Is it white and gold? Please tell us, because we’re losing our minds.
