This is the exact phenomenon with the gold/white & the blue/black dress explained easily
see this figure? looks like it’s white on the bottom & grey on the top, correct?

this is known as color constancy, where the color will always remain the same, but may be altered with the various light it is constructed under. this is the exact same thing with the worldwide known dress.
