Meghan Markle stepped out on International Women's Day in a black and white patterned shift dress by Reiss. The next day, Bloomingdale's dressed a mannequin in an exact copy of the look.

Meghan Markle's fashion influence (opens in new tab) knows no bounds. In addition to inspiring the style of thousands (okay, more like millions) of living, breathing fans, Meghan's looks (opens in new tab) are now being copied by inanimate objects.

The copied style in question this time is Meghan's International Women's Day (opens in new tab) look. For an IWD panel at King's College London on Friday, Meghan stunned (which, like, duh, that's a given) in a black and white, patterned, '60s-style mod dress by Reiss, which she paired with a black blazer and simple heels.

Here's a full-length refresher of the look:

The dress, known as the "Azzura," (opens in new tab) and described by Reiss (opens in new tab) as a "swirl printed shift dress," retails for $345, but does not appear to be available on the Bloomingdale's website (opens in new tab) and is currently (and unsurprisingly) sold out on the Reiss website.

Just one day after Meghan stepped out in the lewk for International Women's Day, a Bloomingdale's mannequin has copied the famously fashionable royal's look. Victoria Arbiter (opens in new tab), a royal commentator for CNN, Inside Edition, Entertainment Tonight, and Good Morrning Britain, among other outlets, spotted the style-stealing piece of plastic on Saturday and shared her discovery on Twitter.

"Bloomingdales got that up quickly!" Arbiter tweeted (opens in new tab), along with a snap of the Meghan Markle mannequin (opens in new tab).
