Ben, an expert and a postproduction supervisor in LA says, “Taken with a camera phone in poor lighting — casts the whites in a blue tone and mutes the gold to a darker color. People who see blue and black are seeing the photo at face value. People who see gold and white are compensating to the photo’s lighting and aesthetic.”
The dress after taking out the blue-toned light and color corrected by Ben.
Even Adobe has their share on this trending topic:
What is the real score? Which is which colors? the answer is: It’s BLUE and BLACK!
The original poster Caitlin McNeil, confirms that the dress is indeed blue and black. She said, a week before they were asked to play for the wedding, the mother of the bride sent a photo to the bride and groom of what she planning to wear on the wedding day.
The couple could not decide if the dress was blue and black or white and gold, so they posted the photo on FB to ask their friends. And that’s were it all started the online stir.
Forgetting all about the photo, that she posted it to her Tumblr on Thurs she said “Then it went absolutely mental,” she said. “Some friends tweeted it, and within the hour I had tens of thousands of notes, tweets, messages.”
McNeil even said, “We all went crazy trying to figure out why some people were seeing white and gold, and others saw blue and black,”.
Here is a snapshot of the dress on the actual wedding.
The dress as another proof is being sold from Roman Originals as the Royal-Blue Lace Detail Bodycon Dress.
There were also several other colors of the same dress, but! none of them is a white and gold one.
So, there you go. I hope the confusion is resolved. And the debate has been settled!
