Ever since announcing her engagement to Prince Harry, the world's eyes have been fixed on Meghan Markle — and her style. We'll be following the Meghan Markle Effect with our column, "Meghan Markle Wore a Thing."

The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and Duke Prince Harry of Sussex have had a jam-packed schedule for their first royal tour together in Australia. And the Duchess has made sure to delight us with her superior sartorial taste throughout it all. When she and her husband visited the ANZAC Memorial at Hyde Park in Sydney to honor the thousands of Australians who have been killed in conflict, she yet again proved she can do no wrong when getting dressed, particularly when it comes to wearing a little black dress.

For the occasion, which saw the Duke of Sussex in a dashing military uniform, the Duchess was clad in a custom black Emilia Wickstead "Camilla" dress — the original version was white crepe silk — with more than 15 buttons from top to bottom. The high neck, short-sleeve dress was done in Wickstead's signature ladylike silhouette with its flared skirt and cinched waist. The Duchess paired it with an equally elegant black fascinator by Philip Treacy, which you can enquire about purchasing here. And she polished the look off with black slingback Tabitha Simmons "Millie" pumps — which she debuted and has been wearing all over Sydney — and a black Givenchy satin clutch, because what would a Meghan Markle look be without a touch of Clare Waight Keller
