Meghan Markle is more than just a future royal; she’s also a high-profile trendsetter. Now that she’s marrying Prince Harry, millions of women around the world are taking their styles cues from her.
US Magazine says that not only are millions of fans after her style, but many of them are hoping to replicate her nose, face, and hair. Dr. Phillip Miller, a Facial Plastic Surgeon in New York City and rhinoplasty expert, says that the request for Markle’s appearance has skyrocketed over recent months.
“It started about six months ago with one to two inquiries regarding Meghan’s nose per week,” Miller said.
To achieve the “Markle Sparkle,” many surgeons suggest not fully going under the knife and instead trying minimally invasive procedures instead. One of these procedures includes the use of the popular drug, Botox. As a matter of fact, Botox is so popular that it achieves $2,455,000,000 in annual revenue.
The International Business Times says Dr. Stafford Broumand, another plastic surgeon in NYC, and his team relies on the use of Botox to help people get the Markle appearance.
“What we discuss with our patients is the judicious use of Botox for the forehead and crow’s feet wrinkles, fillers strategically placed to enhance their cheekbones to give a more heart-shaped face and either a liquid rhinoplasty or a surgical rhinoplasty to improve the shape, size and profile of their nose,” Broumand said.
Not only are millions of people hoping to transform their face to look like Markle’s, but hairstylists around the country have seen a rise in requests for the soon-to-be princess’ hair. Hairstylists say their clients are requesting her infamous dark hair color, the cut, and the shine.
Since the royal engagement of Markle and Prince Harry was made public, her almost $700 Strathberry handbags sold out within hours of its display. As for the Kurt Geiger boots that she wore out in the public late in December? Yeah, those sold out too.
The “Meghan Markle Effect” is hitting the plastic surgery, hair, and clothing markets rapidly and is expected to continue to become stronger over the next few months.
