I put white and gold but I think it is powder blue and gold. But I am color blind as (bleep) too.

Blue and black. Have been trying to adjust my view to see how some people perceive it as white and gold, but I still can't.

Looks like white, gold, and a bit of a forced meme all mixed into one.

Seriously or are you just messing with us? It's clearly white and gold to me.

Different people are reporting seeing different colors. Same picture is gold/white to some and black/blue to others.

No, I really see it as blue/black. I have 20/20 vision.

I've read that it depends on the way your retinas are structured or something.

I was looking at another tab and I accidentally switched to the tab that had the dress and I did see black and blue for a slight second.

It is blue and black, but is somewhat of an optical illusion depending upon your rods and cones. People with great cones see (which detect color) the color first and compensate for the washed out shade, while those with less acute cones default to their rods (which see shade), and compensate in color in a spectrum that makes it seem white and gold.

Given my severe red-green color deficiency, that explains my reaction.

Re load it in a few minutes. Sometimes it is undoubtedly white and gold. Sometimes its blue and black.

Is this a definitive statement, or is it merely your opinion? I feel like I won't trust my eyes any longer if this (the dress is blue/black) is fact; if it's simply your opinion, I'll think about giving 'em another 10-day contract.

I have zero color-blindness, and the dress is always white/gold for me.

I think there is a programmer playing a trick on us. 45 minutes ago it was blue.

When did you first and last look at it?

A couple hours ago and a couple seconds ago. I tried refreshing the page a bunch of times in a row and it was always the same.

It has definitely altered for me. The meat of the dress was clearly blue when I first saw it, and now it is clearly white. So it doesn't have to do with a persons eyes, as 24 has erroneously pointed out, because I had the same eyes both times.

Its either light in the room, or changing of the image source. There is a vine showing a changing of the color by adjusting brightness.

It is actually black and blue. Someone who saw it as white and gold put it in to photoshop supposedly and used the color picker and it read black and blue. Weird because I saw white and gold! Haha

That is insane ... I showed that picture to five or six colleagues, plus my wife ... none in that sample saw black/blue either. I guess it's true; we surround ourselves with those who have compatible views. F ...

These optical illusions are really interesting until you discover that you have deficient body parts betraying you. Getting old and/or having broken parts sucks ...
