Following a worldwide debate and Twitter meltdown over the colour of that dress, Roman Originals, the clothing brand behind the product, has made an actual white and gold dress and will auction it to raise money for Comic Relief.
Last week the world was divided over the colour of #TheDress, after 21-year-old Caitlin McNeill posted a photo on Tumblr which quickly went viral and started trending on Twitter.
Some people thought the dress was blue and black, some were certain it was white and gold. Some saw white and gold, before it morphed into blue and black before their very eyes. (This happened to various members of the Charity Digital News team, causing us to question our own sanity.)
The dress was in fact blue and black, featuring a royal blue body and black lace detail.
Celebrities left, right and centre were chirping up to share their position on #TheDress. Even international pop star Taylor Swift got in on the action, tweeting: “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.”
The bidding war on eBay for the white and gold dress will begin today (Thursday 5th) and last until Sunday.
