“What color is this dress?”

By now you’ve probably seen the dress that has divided the Internet into two camps — “blue and black” and “white and gold.”

Tumblr user swiked uploaded a photo of a dress on Wednesday and asked:

“Guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree…”

The image quickly went viral with some saying the dress is blue and black while others insist it’s white and gold.

Now, celebrities are weighing in.

Taylor Swift is obviously in the “blue and black” camp.


Mindy Kaling of “The Mindy Project” clearly agrees.

As did others.



Then there were those in the “white and gold” camp.

Lucy Hale and Katie Stevens are just confused.

Even our Carolina Panthers weighed in, though they are a little biased.

Same goes for UNC.

Many have theorized the cones and rods in our eyes cause some people to see blue and black while others will see white and gold. But the jury is still out on the official explanation.

So far, these unofficial explanation are the best we’ve seen.
