Newsreader sparks a fierce debate online over colour of her 'white' dress

An Australian newsreader has sparked a heated online debate over the colour of her dress, in an echo of the blue and black frock that went viral in 2015.  

Channel Seven's Kendall Gilding looked sensational in the figure-hugging frock by Ted Baker - but her fans were a little confused by her description of the dress as the 'freshest of white'.

Many of her followers insisted it was actually light blue, raising the possibility that the outfit has an optical illusion effect, like the black and blue Roman Originals dress that went viral in 2015.

Do you see white or blue? TV presenter Kendall Gilding has sparked a lively debate on social media after posting a photo of herself wearing what she claims is a 'white' dress

It's white! Kendall later shared this photo of herself sitting at the Seven News desk to confirm the dress was actually white. One eagle-eyed fan suggested it only looked blue in the other pictures because of the blue wall in the background

Kendall captioned the post: 'Wednesday in White! Living for this dress - the smooth lines, lapel collar detail, divine fabric, the freshest of white!'

'Definitely blue but beautiful,' one fan commented. Another agreed: 'It looks blue.'

'My fav! Looking beautiful in blue babe,' a third follower wrote, while a fourth added: 'It could be white in the blue background...'

Kendall responded to one fan, explaining: 'You're not the first person to say this! I think it must be the low light that we took it in!'

The presenter later shared another photo of herself sitting at the Seven News desk to confirm the dress was actually white.

'For everyone debating whether my dress was white or blue, here's a photo in the news studio!' she wrote. 

Trick of the light? Kendall's followers insisted it was actually light blue, raising the possibility that the outfit has an optical illusion effect, like the black and blue Roman Originals dress that went viral in 2015 (pictured)

Seeing blue! 'Definitely blue but beautiful,' one fan commented. Another agreed: 'It looks blue' 

'It's still blue to me,' one person commented, adding a laughing emoji.

'I was wrong. I said blue!' another wrote.

One eagle-eyed fan suggested it only looked blue in the other pictures because of the blue wall in the background.

'Maybe the previous photo was just a reflection off the wall? The wall was blue, right? Either way, a stunning look,' they wrote.
