Er... Kind of gold and ivory?

It might be white in a different light, I guess.

(The first time I typed "white" I typed "wight" - WTF?)

I have been ostracised by the designers at work for saying that I see it as blue-black in that picture, but as white-gold in the other picture with the shark pasted over the top.

Now everyone thinks I'm more mental.

I'm assuming it's just as much about the colour optical illusion, as it is about the quality and angle of your LCD screen.

I'm waiting for the inevitable Twitter backlash when all this is revealed to be some subtle viral campaign by a sinister megaglobal corporation.

The idea that anyone would see it in the original picture as anything but white/gold (slightly underexposed due to potato phonecam) boggles my mind utterly.

Those who see it as white / gold, do you see it as white gold on the actual product page too, or is it just the dodgy photo?

This is how it appears to me as well (although I accept that's not the case). The question has split my team pretty much 50/50 here at work with both sides being outraged at the other team; awesome stuff.

Someone on the Reddit thread said that he could see it as blue/black if he took his tablet into a dark room and viewed the image there so I'm going to try that when I get home and see if it makes a difference.

Almost 2 million people have taken the poll so far. 72% say it is white/gold. In that picture. Which it clearly is.

Yep, it's the exciting lifestyle I lead! To be fair I'm only having a quiet night in tonight because tomorrow I'm going to this and then out to get very drunk.

to be technical, I would say it's violet, at the bluer end of that colour, or cooler, temperature wise. The lace trim, or whatever it is, is blackish.

I'm bemused that people can see this as white and gold. Every image I've looked at is a variation on the above colours. I'm going to assume it's a gamut issue on monitors, or people are wearing glasses with very mild colour altering coatings.

Looks the same on my phone and work monitor, also the same colours glasses on and off. White and gold.

At a push, I could be willing to say that the main dress material is a very light blue. However the lace is categorically, 100%, without a shadow of a doubt, gold.

While that's as may be, the dress actually /is/ blue and black, so...
