Two women are behind the viral dress that has everyone confused. Here’s what they told us. The picture was initially posted on Tumblr by a 21-year-old singer named Caitlin McNeill who lives on the tiny Scottish island of Colonsay.
In a telephone conversation with Business Insider on Thursday evening, McNeill explained that the dress in the picture was worn to her friends’ wedding. Some people see the dress as it appears in the photo as white and gold, while others see it as blue and black.
The dress was worn by the bride’s mother. McNeill and her friends first realized something was different about the dress when the mother sent her daughter the now-famous photo.
