Fact: No one is immune to the Meghan Markle effect. It’s no surprise that Markle inspires a flurry of purchases each time she steps out the door, with some brands attributing as much as a 1000% increase in sales because she wore something from them. Apparently her influence is so strong that even her fellow celebrities can’t help but shop the items she wears, too, or at least that’s what we’re assuming after spotting Reese Witherspoon in the same sneakers Markle also owns.
Witherspoon wore a pair of Veja V-10 Sneakers ($150) that, thanks to Markle, are one of Nordstrom’s top sellers. It’s not hard to see why they have a cult following—the French brand is known for its sleek, minimal kicks made from sustainable materials that fashion girls and celebs alike all gravitate towards. Okay, so we’ll never know for sure whether it was Meghan Markle’s influence that led Witherspoon to buy her own pair of Veja sneakers, but the fact remains that both celebs own the popular pair. Unlike Markle who favors them with skinny jeans, Witherspoon styled the sneakers effortlessly with a printed midi dress and camel sweater.
