The mother-of-two and lawyer, 36, shared a mirror selfie on her Instagram stories as she wore the £1595 metallic midi dress ahead of the Celebrating America event on Wednesday.
Meena appeared to have looked across the pond for her fashion inspiration because her ensemble was almost identical to a green dress from the same designer that Kate Middleton, 39, and Princess Beatrice, 31, have previously been snapped in.
Celebrity stylist Rochelle White told FEMAIL the gown had become an instant classic for celebrities and royals alike, explaining: ‘I think that the dress has been a go too for celebs because it is easy to wear, but has maximum impact.
