Black Celeb Gossip
Truth rating: 10PHOTOS
Is the dress pictured at right white and gold? Or is it blue and black? That debate dominated social media on Thursday night, as seemingly everyone in the world weighed in on the outfit’s colors.
The image went viral early in the evening when people began arguing over whether the dress appeared white and gold or blue and black. Not surprisingly, everyone had an opinion, and a line was quickly drawn between the two camps. There are some explanations going around for why the dress (which, for the record, Gossip Cop thinks is white and gold) appears to be colored differently to some people.
For instance, some are blaming the lighting in which the dress was photographed for not capturing its true tones. Others have suggested that a person’s mood could influence what colors they see. A few have brought science into the discussion, explaining how people’s retinas can interpret color differently. Then there’s the technical factor, since the photo’s colors can be digitally manipulated to have different brightness, just as the brightness of your computer screen can be changed and affect things, too.
Interestingly, some of the people most passionately tweeting about the dress are actually celebrities. Everyone from recent Oscar winner Julianne Moore to Taylor Swift to B.J. Novak have weighed in, and some stars are actually (playfully) arguing with each other. Gossip Cop has rounded up some of the opinions and explanations. Tell us what you think below!
Mindy Kaling was one of the most outspoken tweeters, firing off message after message as she tried to get to the bottom of the situation. “IT’S A BLUE AND BLACK DRESS! ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME, ” she declared, going on to call ex-boyfriend and close friend Novak “insane” for thinking otherwise. Moore then chimed in, writing to them both, “What’s the matter with u guys, it’s white and gold.” And when Nathan Fillion also disagreed with her, Kaling replied, “I can’t live in a world where Castle thinks that dress is white and gold. How many murderers has he let go.”
Swift tweeted, “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.” Jack Antonoff replied, writing, “Same. truly stressed out about it and don’t know what to do.” Zendaya confessed, “Yo this dress thing on here is confusing the mess outta me.” She went on to write, “So it’s deff white and gold but then I just saw it as black and blue too…..TRIIIPPPPYYYYY #imdonewiththeinternet.”
“Guys. I’ve stared at this dress for 5 minutes. Like an idiot. All I see is white and gold. And a satin bolero that shouldn’t be paired w/ it, ” wrote Sarah Hyland. She went on to note, “I asked my brother. He agreed with me saying gold and white. Now all he sees in blue and black. What is this sorcery!!! I still see g/w.” But as the debate raged on, the “Modern Family” actress amusingly wrote, “What color is that dress? UGLY. The end.” She then referenced the llamas that were on the loose in Phoenix earlier Thursday, and wrote, “Today has been a day of wonder. Llamas and color changing dresses. What is happening in 2015?”
