Millions of fans devotedly followed their social platform of choice to garner a peek at the year's most extravagant wedding, but the moment the photo of Kim Kardashian's dress hit the Internet, the world paused. It was breathtaking.

Women in England and across the pond in America responded immediately to the newly crowned Queen's trendsetting style and started to select white as their gown color of choice, too.
