The dress in question doesn’t come in white and gold though. It does come in blue and black, however, which is exactly what you’d expect if the picture were under yellow light. And as it happens, you can look at the background of the viral picture to see that indeed the entire scene is washed with yellow.
I have seen lots and lots of people linking to this 'original dress'. It utterly confuses me. How is that the same dress? Both the shoulders and the lace pattern are completely different.
Apart from that: The colors in the photo are clearly gold and white (but a very blueish white). Just blow the picture up with an image editor and you can clearly see that. Of course that hardly tells us anything about the original color, because lighting has so much influence.
