On Thursday, Tumblr user swiked posted a photo of a dress that might make you think you're losing your mind. The entire Internet, including many of your favorite celebrities, are weighing in on the color of this dress. Some people see white and gold while others see blue and black. 

Buzzfeed has attempted to get to the bottom of this mystery and found that the dress appears to be white and gold when the blue-toned light in the background is removed. However, when saturation is added and exposure lowered, the dress appears to be conclusively blue and black. Alternate angles and the dress's stock image are heavily in favor of Team Blue and Black. Tech company Adobe has even weighed in on that matter using its color tools to deduce that the dress is blue and black. 

Check out the full evidence and some of the most popular opinions below. 








UPDATE 2/27/2015: 

Celebrities have continued to weigh in on the great dress debate on Twitter, with Kim Kardashian sharing that she and Kanye West are divided on the subject, Ariana Grande seeing a slightly different combination than everyone else, and Jaden Smith subtlety taking it to a deeper place in as few characters as possible, as usual.
