#TheDress broke the Internet 1 year ago: Celebrate with these optical illusions

Forget the American presidential election, one year ago today, a dress found on the Internet erupted a frenzy and divided the entire world.

There were those who saw a blue and black dress and there were others who saw white and gold. The photo made people question their vision and even had some conducting scientific research on why people see different colors.

The photo of the dress that confused the world

TODAY.com caught up with Cecilia Bleasdale, owner of the infamous dress, and discovered that it's currently hanging in her closet in Lancaster, England. She bought it to wear to her daughter, Grace's, wedding.

When she texted Grace three photos of dress options and asked which was her favorite, she responded "the white and gold one."

"None of the dresses were white and gold," Bleasdale told TODAY.com. "I showed my husband and he saw a blue and black dress in person and a white and gold one in the photo. That's when I thought something was odd."

Turns out, she wasn't wrong. The dress is still confusing the nation one year later — and to honor the occasion, we've compiled some of the best optical illusions we've found in the past year.
