#TheDress

Join the Debate!

"The dress" is a viral meme that launched to stardom on 26th February 2015, when the world disagreed over whether the item of clothing below was black and blue or white and gold.

In popular discourse, the disagreement over the colours was sometimes referred to as "dressgate".
