Naturally, after years of being in an industry in which the correct color is critical, I have an opinion on #the[damn]dress.
NONE OF YOU CAN HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT ACTUAL COLOR THE DRESS IS UNLESS YOU’RE LOOKING AT THE ACTUAL, PHYSICAL DRESS!
And that’s assuming you’re not color blind.
The ambient light and color reflections, the camera quality, the monitor you’re using to look at an image, all have an effect on what you see. The photo below is a copy of the original photo uploaded to Tumblr. I took some photoshop color samples to put the matter to rest.
The dress isn’t blue or black, OR white or gold. It’s mostly grayish/blue and a bronzy/brown. There it is. Nuff said.
But if you insist – here you go. Courtesy of 30 seconds of Photoshop.
