Both quickly "skyrocketed to become top sellers," David's Bridal senior vice president of merchandising, design, and product development Lori Conley tells ELLE.com. "And we've seen subsequent build ever since. [Brides] are definitely inspired by Meghan and responding by wanting to look like a duchess of their own."

The excitement surrounding Markle's bridal style is likely just beginning. In addition to the Stella McCartney, she wore a simple wide boatneck dress devoid of fripperies by Claire Waight Keller for Givenchy during the ceremony. David's Bridal anticipates a permanent pivot from the popularity of heavily embellished gowns to ones with simpler designs like both of Markle's ceremony and reception picks.

Despite the Meghan Markle effect being an industry in itself, being While women were inspired by Kate’s look, they did not want to feel as if they were in a costume, so bridal designers are expected to take elements from Meghan ’s dress after May 19 and incorporate them in their new collections.

"That kind of clean aesthetic isn't going away," says Conley. "We'll continue to see incremental sales of similar dresses. Similarly, as with Kate's dress, Meghan has definitely set balls in motion to change trends... and I think we'll continue to see that build."

Markle's influence on fashion could even surpass Kate Middleton's impact on the industry. Prior to the royal wedding, London-based consulting business Brand Finance estimated her style choices are already worth $212.1 million (approx. $280 million AUD) to the brands she wears. Although the company has yet to run numbers on her economic impact on bridal style specifically, CEO David Haigh said in a press release given to ELLE.com that Markle's global influence is only beginning to show. The "Meghan Effect," as he calls it, "will undoubtedly match or even surpass the 'Kate Effect' in its influence."

For her own wedding to Prince William in 2011, Kate choose a fitted V-neck gown with a long-sleeved lace overlay by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Her dress sleeves practically reintroduced the notion of covered arms to the bridal market, where as before strapless styles reigned.

Markle's modern dresses are already inspiring major bridal designers. Reem Acra, Morilee, Pronovias, and Floravere capitalized on the attention she brought to high-neck halters and simple cuts by immediately promoting previously designed gowns similar in style to their social media pages. Some, like Romona Keveza, even posted side-by-side comparisons on Instagram.

"Designers definitely aren't shy about drawing comparisons, but they're smart to try to tap into the excitement around the royal wedding and Meghan's more modern sense of style," The Knot's fashion and beauty editor Shelley Brown tells ELLE.com. "I expect to see a lot of minimalistic dresses that mimic both of Meghan's dresses coming down the runways next bridal fashion week."

Study: Vitamin Supplements Might Do More Harm Than Good

  Study: Vitamin Supplements Might Do More Harm Than Good A new review of 180 studies found little or no protective effects from taking dietary supplements, and actually found some harm. The new study aimed to examine the benefits of vitamin and mineral supplements for prevention of heart disease, stroke and premature death (termed “all-cause mortality”). This found the most commonly studied ones had no effect, while some less common ones did have an effect. The review also found some supplements can be harmful.

The Meghan Markle Effect . The bridal industry once called it lilac, but today, it’s called melodramatic purple. Either way, the addition of a lavender hue to the wedding gowns have replaced the usual pink and blue hues.

Not everyone in the bridal industry felt Middleton’s impact that strongly, however. Growing consumer interest in Meghan Markle ’s style indicates that her wedding dress will probably have a massive effect on the bridal market, but that isn’t likely to happen overnight.

Bridal tiaras and crowns first became popular after Kate debuted her Cartier Halo in 2011, but now get a "bad rep for feeling dated," says Brown. "I'm sure they will only become more popular, given Meghan did end up wearing a tiara on her wedding day."

She adds, "They can be really beautiful if done in a delicate way or mixed with fresh florals."

Markle's "barely there" makeup is providing bridal beauty inspiration, too. She tapped makeup artist Daniel Martin to create her wedding-day look: slight smokey eye, neutral rose-pink lipstick, and luminescent skin spotlighting her freckles.

Her decision to show off her natural complexion prompted posts from admirers about embracing their own freckles, using the hashtag #freckleslikemeghan. Some freckle fanatics are even going so far as to get face tattoos to look more like the duchess. Gabrielle Rainbow, who specializes in giving semipermanent faux-freckle tattoos, told NewBeauty that she has been "crazy busy" with requests for the $250 treatment (approx. $330 AUD) and believes the royal wedding definitely "boosted customers' interest in the whole idea of freckles."

Markle's minimal makeup is part of a larger "no makeup makeup," trend for brides, says Brown. "In general, bridal hair and makeup have become increasingly less fussy over the years, it's all about the undone updo and letting your natural beauty shine through."

She adds, "I think now that such an iconic figure has embraced a very fresh-faced wedding day look, more brides are likely to adopt it as well, especially if simple makeup feels true to their personal style."
