Playing Ellen DeGeneres Settles the Great Dress Debate Once and For All!

It all started out as dress shopping for a wedding, but it became an internet sensation. Is it white and gold or blue and black?

Leave it to Ellen Degeneres, who doesn't wear dresses herself, to get down to the bottom of this debate after admitting she sees it as white and gold.

On Tuesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host brought in the owner of the devil dress and the woman who took the picture of it for Tumblr, "And I'm not letting them leave the building until they tell me that it's white and gold," Ellen says.

The dress was actually argued about for weeks within a family in Scotland before it hit the Internet. Initially, newlywed Grace's mother sent her a picture of three dresses to look at that she would wear to her wedding. "And I said, 'Oh, the white and gold one?' And she said, 'No, the blue and black one.' And I said, 'No, mom that's white and gold and if you think it's blue and black you need to go to the doctors,'" she tells Ellen.

The debate then continued with her fiance who saw it as blue and black too, and her friend Caitlyn ended up posting it to Tumblr to see if she could find out some answers.

It quickly became a trending topic and still continues to be heavily searched as people are discovering more about the rods in their eyes.

When Grace's mother comes out wearing the dress on the show, it's actually blue and black.

So while a vast majority did see it as white and gold, DeGeneres ends this controversy by giving them all white and gold and blue and black underwear, a honeymoon for the couple and $10,000 to start their new life together.
