This question got viral and is making a lot of people on Twitter crazy! You might be asking yourself “why?”… because whilst some people see this dress as being white and gold (me for example!), other people see it black and blue!
Background story: This dress was worn by a bride’s mother at the wedding party that the british singer Caitlin McNeill went to. Caitlin had such a big discussion with her brother that she decided to ask on Tumblr how people perceived this dress.
Actually… the dress is black and blue (I can’t believe it cause I still see it white and gold hahaha)!
Why some people see it white and gold whilst others see it black and blue? It is an optical illusion! The human brain determines the colour of everything in its reflacted light – and the perception of colours can change by shadow of nearby objects. This photo is so bad and the surrounding colours are so muddled that the brain can’t decide what colour it is.
We see colours differently: those who perceive the surrounding area as dark, will claim that the blue in the dress is white and the black will be gold.
And what colour do you see?
