Since announcing her pregnancy in October, Meghan Markle has consistently knocked it out of the park with her maternity style.
Perhaps most eye-opening is the sheer cost of everything the Duchess of Sussex has worn over the past few months. According to Love the Sales, Meghan's maternity wardrobe has reportedly cost more than half a million dollars. Whoa. (For those keeping track, that's seven times what Kate Middleton's wardrobe cost during her last pregnancy.)
Costly? Yes. Chic? You bet. The site also determined that Meghan's most "liked" maternity look was the the black one-shoulder Givenchy gown she wore back in December to the 2018 Fashion Awards in London. (Photos of that particular dress garnered more than 356k social media likes.) In a close second, likes-wise, was the white dress-jacket combination that she wore for a date night with Prince Harry at the Natural History Museum in London in February.
As for designers, Givenchy was a favorite, with the duchess rocking seven looks by the brand (which, if you'll remember, designed her wedding dress). Other labels Meghan's been loyal to during her pregnancy include Aquazzura, Stuart Weitzman and Outland Denim.
The report also proved that the Meghan Markle Effect is very very real. For example, after she wore an ivory shift dress by Karen Gee in October, searches for the Australian designer went up by a whopping 5,800 percent. After she wore a bump-hugging, $35 dress from H&M in January, the dress sold out in less than 24 hours and was soon spotted on eBay for as much as six times the retail price.
It costs a lot of money to look this cheap amazing.
