The colour of this dress is driving the internet absolutely insane

Is it black and blue, or white and gold? ARGH.

ARE YOU READY TO be driven mad for the rest of the day? Just try to guess the colour of this dress.

Yesterday, Tumblr user swiked uploaded this picture of a party dress, and asked people to help her figure out which colour it is:

Guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the f**k out.

The debate over whether the dress is black and blue OR white and gold has sent the internet into turmoil. Really.

Some people are seeing black. Some people are seeing gold. A special few people see both.

Poll Results:

White and gold (2926)
Blue and black (1303)

UPDATE: The dress is, definitively, black and blue. Here’s an explainer, with the science behind it. SCIENCE.
