I see a light grey and gold dress but its probably just the shadow and the picture isn't a clear shot so who is to say what's the real color. :-/
Its obviously a white and gold dress. The tint of the picture is making the white parts look a bit blue but that's just saturation to me.
How can this become an internet sensation? If you take an image and over or under expose it then you're going to end up with different colors, its obvious.
The most amazing thing is not the photo but how many different colors people see. It makes you wonder if what one person sees is really the same as the next person.
I don't really understand this - hasn't science measured the wavelengths of the various colours? Would different scientific instruments measuring this image come out with different readings? I don't think so!
For the sake of world peace, someone measure this photo and settle the argument once and for all. (Then please determine if toilet rolls should be hung with the paper away from the wall or next to the wall).
It all depends on the person watching this picture, everyone sees things slightly different than the other. The real color of this dress is black and blue, and the photo which makes it appear white and gold was overexposed according to media outlets.
I see something of a reddish brown and a light purple or violet myself, though it is interesting to see how others answer as well. Krusten's answer is interesting, I had not considered the color being what it is because of saturation.
