The Dress That Divided The Internet
The internet just went crazy when someone uploaded a photo of a dress. This dress was confusing because to some it appears blue and black, while to others, it is clearly white and gold. Daughters quarreled with their mothers, fathers with their sons and husbands with their wives. One photo almost divaded people on the internet and in the real life. Even celebrities like Taylor Swift took a part in the debate. Check out this blue and black or gold and white dress dilemma below.
The dress dilemma started with this photo posted on Tumblr.
The woman who took that photo had trouble recognizing the colors of the dress, so she asked for help people on the internet.
And people on Twitter completely freaked out whether this dress is blue and black or white and gold.
folks i do colors for a living and that dress is blue and black. the yellowish lighting is making the black part look sorta gold.

I don't understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it's a trick somehow.

Guys. I've stared at this dress for 5 minutes. Like an idiot. All I see is white and gold. And a satin bolero that shouldn't be paired w/ it

If that's not White and Gold the universe is falling apart. Seriously what is happening????

According to one poll on BuzzFeed, 75% see white and gold.
Finally, Hope Taylor and Adobe solved the mistery.

At this point it appears to be just how your eyes adjust to the mix of colors. If your eyes are more sensitive to blue and black, that’s what you see; if they are more sensitive to the lighter colors, that is what you see.
