What Colour Is This Dress? (SOLVED with SCIENCE)
It's the dress that has LITERALLY divided the world - some see it as black and blue, while others swear it's white and gold. Everyone from Kanye to Ariana are SUPER confused!
Who'd have thought one dress could be so divisive? The internet basically imploded when the question of what colour this frock was caused mass uproar - some people swear they see it as blue and black, while others see white and gold. (The general consensus in the Capital office is white and gold, FYI).
Check out the video above for the science behind 2015's BIGGEST talking point so far, and vote in our poll to let us know what colour you're seeing.
Even the celebs are as baffled as we are about how people can see the colours so differently:

Apparently the science-y types think it has to do with your emotional state, and that people who see white and gold are in a cheerier place than those who see black and blue. Who knew?
