If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s the not so glam looking chiffon dress that is causing a Twitter storm. The picture of a dress with frilly trimmings has been widely circulated online and no one can agree on what exactly the original colour is. What colour do you see? Even here at NL HQ, the gloves are off. Some of us swear the dress is white and gold, while others cannot imagine how that could be when they see a black and blue dress.
What is going on you might think? The dress has sparked a scientific debate around the world with even renowned scientists wading in in an attempt to solve the riddle of ‘The Dress’. The variation in colour has been attributed to everything from individual mood to skin resolution and colour processing in the brain.
Even celebrities have gotten involved with a few tweeting what colour they see. Mariah Carey (we can imagine in her demure voice) tweeted, “It’s white and gold of course darlings.” Cara Delevingne also swears it’s white and gold, while Taylor Swift thinks it’s Blue and Black.
So, which one is it?!
