So what is its actual Color????  
                           
                  The Answer is……It is Blue and Black!!


Since people couldn’t understand how their eyes were playing tricks on them, they turned to experts and Here how they explained it!

Cedar Riener, Associate professor of psychology at Randolph-Macon College (talking to BuzzFeed News)

“The differences in colour perception are probably related to how our brains are interpreting the "quantity of light” that comes into our retina. Some people are deciding that there is a fair amount of illumination on a blue and black (or less reflective) dress," Riener says. "Other people are deciding that it is less illumination on a white/gold dress (it is in shadow, but more reflective)."

Apparently, the picture was taken with a bright background making the black and blue color very similar to White and Gold. To clear things up, Wired.com Experts used a computer to recognize Colors using RGB values. Clearly there isn’t any White there!!
