It's no secret that Meghan Markle is stylish AF. The Duchess of Sussex always dons chic ensembles when she steps out for her official royal duties. Whether she's rocking business slacks from her own collection or an elegant, high fashion gown, Meghan serves us fashion inspiration on the regular. So it comes as no surprise that the Duchess was named the most influential dresser of 2019.
Meghan's impeccable style was honored by Lyste, a gloabal fashion search engine. Lyste combed through the data from their site to figure out which public figure had the most desirable wardrobe. "This year 104 million shoppers started their fashion search on Lyst," the company explained in a press release. "We analysed the data; crunching the queries, page views and sales metrics across six million fashion products from over 12,000 online stores, alongside the global media coverage and social media mentions generated by the year's biggest brands and trends. From streetwear to spider brooches, Timothée Chalamet to Tevas, here's what was trending in 2019."
Lyste aimed to find out "the 10 celebrities whose personal style choices drove the biggest spikes in searches, sales, news coverage and social media mentions over the last 12 months." Unsurprisingly, Meghan came out on top. "After she wore five different shirt dresses on the Royal Tour of South Africa, searches for the category grew 45% over a month," Lyste revealed. "The Club Monaco dress sold out in less than 24 hours, following a 570% spike in searches and wearing a J Crew skirt saw a 102% increase in searches for the brand."
Meghan is in good company on Lyste's run down of the most fashionable celebs of the year. Timothée Chalamet, Cardi B and Zendaya were all named as some of Lyste's most influential dressers. Which celeb gave you the most fashion inspiration in 2019?
