What Color is this Dress?

White and Gold or Blue and Black?

White and Gold or Blue and Black?

Well this one has been trending all over the web, just what color is this dress?

It all started in Scotland when the mother of a bride-to-be sent a picture to her daughter asking what she thought of the dress. The bride and groom each saw the image differently, this then got posted online and picked up by some viral sites.

The lighting in the photo is probably causing different people to see it as either white and gold or blue and black. Prof Stephen Westland, chair of color science and technology at a university in the UK told the BBC that it was impossible to see what other people see but that it was most likely unusual lighting causes such a wide difference in what color people see the dress.

If you watch a video of it then you can see this one is actually blue and black, but it highlights how we can perceive things differently…pretty cool.

I see white and gold but my son sees blue…
