STOP IT: The dress is Blue & Black already


Most of us not joining the debate are on the sidelines out of sheer shock and disbelief that with everything going on around us now including Madonna falling off the stage at the Brit Awards, people (let’s rephrase that),  the world is torn between if a bodycon dress featured on the mother of a bride at a Scotland wedding was actually blue and black or gold and white.

Seriously guys, are we really doing this?

The picture first appeared on Tumblr after  21-year-old aspiring singer from Scotland, Caitlin McNeill noticed her friends saw different colours in the photograph and wanted a general opinion- instantly it got the world online worked up.



What color is that dress? I see white & gold. Kanye sees black & blue, who is color blind?” Reality TV star Kim Kardashian  began the debate with her followers.

‘I don’t understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it’s a trick somehow. I’m confused and scared. PS it’s OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK,” said American singer Taylor Swift, 25 posted her confusion on Twitter while Justin Bieber weighed in saying he sees ‘blue and black’.




While some people swore the dress was coloured white with gold lace detailing some others held strongly to the assertion that it was royal blue with black instead and then there were the fence sitters who said the colour changes between both.

In the end, Roman Originals who sold the dress to the bride’s mother confirmed the dress was in fact Blue and Black but has now sold out because of the global hype it attracted, also, Adobe, the colour experts wrote on Twitter that using their software, the dress is black and blue. Problem solved.
