Wow, time really does fly — can you believe it’s been a full YEAR since a photo of that pesky dress went viral and sparked arguments across the world about its color? On the one year anniversary, the Internet is still split on whether the ensemble is blue and black or white and gold!
What color is the dress? A year after this debate went viral, people are still arguing over the hue of the frock: Is it black and blue…or white and gold? While many Internet users have seen the dress as both pairings, there’s plenty who are still convinced that there’s on WAY it could be the opposite color scheme from what they see. Yup, it looks like this one is going to be a controversy FOREVER.
The dress is to 2015 as Damn Daniel is to 2016! It’s been a full year since the Internet went wild over a photo of a striped, sequined dress, with no one seemingly able to agree on whether it was black and blue or white and gold. The debate went on for days as people started seeing the dress in BOTH colors depending on when they looked at it, with others insisting its impossible that the hue changed at all.
With help from Timehop and other social media Flashback features, the Internet was reminded that Feb. 26 marks one year since we all argued about this, and not much has changed in those 365 days. Tons of Twitter users have already taken to their social media pages to reveal their view on the dress today, and there’s still no straightforward answer! See the tweets below.
“No one is really seeing the color of the dress, they are seeing the color of the light that is reflected to the dress,” Opthalmologist Wesley K. Herman told HollywoodLife.com. “It could depend on what is next to it in the background, on the computer and can also depend on an individual eye.” We’re still so baffled by this whole thing!

It has been one year, but I can still not accept the fact that the dress is black and blue… BECAUSE IT IS OBVIOUSLY WHITE AND GOLD!

HollywoodLifers, what color do YOU think the dress is? Is that the same color you saw last year?
