Remember that time a simple
black and blue gold and white dress threatened to tear the world in two?
Friendships were obliterated, celebrities and politicians weighed in, and the whole #dressgate mess made us question everything. Do we all see the same colours? Is colour a construct? Are those people seeing black and blue actually insane? WHAT IS HAPPENING?
Now we've all recovered and peace has been restored, you'll be pleased/horrified to know there's a whole new sartorial colour conundrum blazing across the internet. Brace yourselves.
The inferno was sparked by Ava Munro, an unassuming 14-year-old who couldn't decide which nail polish shade to wear with a pair of heels for an upcoming gala event.
When her friends couldn't deliver a verdict on pink vs purple, Munro resorted to a quick crowdsource on Twitter, as one is wont to do in this age of digital connectivity:
It was an innocent question, but it soon spiralled out of control. The original post has now amassed more than 6000 retweets, debate is raging, and Munro has been left a little dazed and confused. Understandably.
"I was hoping that only a couple of people would answer ... and now it turned into this huge thing," she tells ABC News.
Evidently, a shoe and a couple of bottles of nail polish are enough to make you famous these days. (Post continues after gallery.)
