You may remember the infamous blue and black dress that some saw as white and gold. The debate has resurfaced on social media and I'm having a full nostalgia moment. My question to my fellow LadyTitans is which combination of colors do/did you see? (Picture attached) Also, what was the reason some people saw it being white and gold? (I don't remember 😅)
Solved! Go to Solution.
I googled and this is what I got:
People who saw the dress as a white-gold color probably assumed it was lit by daylight, so their brains ignored shorter, bluer wavelengths. Those who saw it as a blue-black shade assumed a warm, artificial light, so their brains ignored longer, redder wavelengths.
Too much science for me lol
LOL this dress is so iconic at this point. I always saw it as blue & black so it's interesting to see how everyone's eyes work. (Also, people were legit getting this dress tattooed on them...like what?!? 😂)
