Celebrity Shoe Lovers React to #TheDress

It’s the debate heard round the globe. We went to sleep in a simpler world and awoke to #thedress. Is it blue and black? Is it white and gold? Is the flash to blame or is poor eyesight the culprit? (All FN knows is that shoes rarely give us such a problem.)

There’s two of us at the desk at time of posting, sitting in complete disagreement – and (for one of us) denial over the fading state of our vision – and yet, we need to know. What color combo is this dress? Plenty of theories abound on the Internet this morning, but we decided to see what our favorite shoe icons had to say about #thedress.

The dress, called Roman Women’s Lace Detail Bodycon Dress, is officially labeled as “royal blue” on Amazon, where it retails for 50 pounds (or $77). In fact, you might want to turn your attention to spot-on customer reviews on Amazon if you need to enjoy your Friday a little more today. Here’s a sampling:
“Robbed a bank in this dress. Nobody could agree on a proper description of me. Sketch artist’s head exploded. Got away. Fantastic.” (5 stars)

“The good: Works equally well as formal or business casual attire.

“The bad: Carves a crooked path through perceptual reality and leaves behind it a wake of confusion and existential crises. Also unforgiving on the hips.” (1 star)
