Koerner explains that the dress is gold and white. With the knowledge of a post-production supervisor, Koerner explains that the picture of the dress may have been taken in poor lighting. As such, it makes the white color appear as blue and gold to appear as black. She explains that people who see the dress to be black and blue do so since they see the dress at the face value. While people who see the dress as being white and gold compensate the photo’s lighting and aesthetic.
Loria on the hand explains that most languages had not developed a word that describes the color blue until recently. In fact, he even gives an example of the people of the Himba tribe of Namibia who have no word that describes the color blue. To them, blue is just the same as green. Loria explains that different people see colors in a different way. To explain this, he refers to the people of the Himba tribe who do not seem to see the difference between blue and green, but would immediately note a different shade of green which most of us would not be able to do.
