What color is that dress? I see white & gold. Kanye sees black & blue, who is color blind?— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 27, 2015
I don't understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it's a trick somehow. I'm confused and scared. PS it's OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 27, 2015
