We’re sure you’ve ALL seen the tidal wave that has taken over the interweb this morning. And no, it’s not sparked by a member of the Kardashian family – for once!

Forget Kim Kardashian and her Paper Magazine cover, it’s taken just a simple dress to break the internet.

The world has been rocked by a simple question: “Is this dress blue and black, or white and gold?”  Yes, Blake Lively, we’d like to know too…

Now, #TheDress is trending worldwide, and opinions are completely divided.

The LOOK office can’t quite get to the bottom of it and, it seems, the rest of the world can’t decide either.

The celebrity world has also been shaken by this debate, with some of the biggest global names weighing in.


Taylor Swift seemed visibly shaken, and actually quite scared, taking to Twitter to announce her take on the phenomenon: “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”

It looks like Kim Kardashian and hubby Kanye couldn’t even agree, and she turned to her 29 million+ followers for advice, tweeting:  “What color is that dress? I see white & gold. Kanye sees black & blue, who is color blind?”


Even Justin Beiber has wade in, confirming he can see black and blue. Thanks, JB.


We’re officially flummoxed.

What’s YOUR verdict?
