Something old, something new, something borrowed, something; BLUE .. OR IS IT GOLD? Cecilia's mother-of-the-bride dress starts a worldwide web debate about its true colour.

Byline: JENNY KANE reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

THIS is the dress that sparked a global internet meltdown as people debated whether or not it was blue and black - or white and gold.

Cecilia Bleasdale was unaware of the storm she would create when she took a picture of the dress she planned to wear to her 'daughter's wedding.

She sent the now famous photo to her daughter, Grace, who lives on Colonsay.

After being posted on social media the photo sparked a worldwide debate as people argued over whether the two-tone frock is white and gold or blue and black.

As our picture of Cecilia wearing the dress at the wedding clearly shows the frock is actually blue and black.

But the image of the dress on the right has the world stumped, with some seeing it as white and gold. and others genuinely seeing it as black and blue.

The apparent optical illusion has left the world flummoxed.

ODD Caitlin with Even Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West had a disagreement about what colour it is and the hashtag #TheDress is now trending worldwide on Twitter.

"The snap taken at the wedding on Colonsay shows Cecilia, from Blackpool, beside her daughter Grace and her son-in-law Keir Johnston.

"'Angie McPhee, 37, also from Blackpool, said: "It's my mum's dress. It was my sister Grace's wedding on Colonsay. Mum sent the picture to Grace to give the dress a thumbs up or thumbs down.

"It was sent originally to my sister then my 'mum sent the picture to me and Grace said 'Why is she wearing white and gold to the wedding?' We were shocked my mum had chosen a light coloured dress.

"Originally I saw it as white and gold. Grace saw it as white and gold - her fiance saw it as blue and black and they had a bit of an argument about it.

"The actual dress is blue and black. Only that picture is different."

The photo was posted on Tumblr by 21-year-old Caitlin McNeill after the wedding.

Lindsay Maden, 26, was a bridesmaid.

She said: "Grace is my best friend and Cecilia is her mother.

"Before the wedding we were all on the hen do and talking about what Cecilia will wear.

picture Lindsay said she had sent a message to Grace in Jamaica, who told her she had received "lots of missed calls and messages, adding: "It's dead weird waking up and seeing my phone has gone mental."

And Keir posted on his Facebook page: you know it's gonna be a strange day when you wake up and after 30 seconds of 'Son the internet can turn to Grace and say 'So Kim sees white and gold, but Kanye sees blue and black'..."
