    dark colour - grey/brown... or a warm grey depending on how you want to describe it
    light colour - mid grey... although likely a white
    background - mixtures of 'town colours'

    People online and in this office have said they can see white and gold, I get how they can see the gold as the black looks a dirty browny gold colour.

    to be fair the colour could be being thrown out by colour calibration on the screen and the camera... for all we know it could be gold and silver lol

    after venturing onto a few blogs I've now seen this image being called blue and black as the correct answer.....with a picture showing the dress on the makers website in blue and black.... they kind of miss the fact that if you click the small squares to the right it shows it comes in other colours including white and black.... :rolleyes:

    You just got to love US net neutrality day... or as it will likely forever be remembered... llama day

    edit: that picture does look slightly more bluish now though for some reason....maybe the outside light from the window threw it off a little earlier... hmm

    People are litterally freaking out in the office over this picture. People are 100% sure its white and gold and same people have now looked again and say its blue.

    I actually find this quite shocking. No matter which way I look at it, the dress is categorically blue and black. It’s beginning to make me question the way humanity as a species, visually interprets the world!

    Do the people who see the dress differently think that there were white aliens in the Eifel 65 video? Do they think America is run by a charismatic gold man?

    I'm so so so confused. I saw this on reddit a few hours ago and it doesn't make sense. Where in the world is the white coming from?

    As you said Jordan i get the black being seen as gold but white vs blue?! How?

    But is it really as 'blue' as the actual blue dress is, it's literally a really dark blue - just follow the link.

    Now the tones we have in the image on here can easily be attributed to white balance/shadows etc when it was taken if it's a white/black dress.

    Not to mention it has one of those 'colour tricks' where if you look at colour a for x seconds it changes the colour of colour b

    ok. i've just seen this again on the laptop and now it is 100% blue and black. Desktop monitor it was 100% white/gold. and that's meant to be the better of the 2 screens!

    Black and blue now and yesterday evening. Y-day afternoon I saw gold and white. I'm starting to think someone's playing with us.

    I looked at the image and it was white and gold I thought, I thought it was a new picture, I looked away and looked at the same pic again and it was blue and black! some freaky stuff going on here.

    It's got the same visual trick as those 'spinning' images and 'burnt in images' that you see on other sites, sure gizmodo showed a load.

    I see gold and white, much to my fiancée's utter shock and confusion. Apparently this means the way my brain interprets colour is wrong. Pretty damning for an illustrator!

    I'm with you Jim, how can it possibly be black unless it's a bad photo? I'm sure most of our jobs would be sent back to us if our eyes were that bad!

    (I've only posted this so it's not your face dominating the forum) ;)

    It is a bad photo Wardy, a decent photo of the same dress is floating about the internet now as well, proving it's blue & blackness. Apparently it was freak fluke of lighting and digital image processing...

    Join me, Wardy... and together we will rule the forum with our faces. Or something.
