Meghan, 36, looked sensational in the outfit, which she accessorised with some glamorous diamond earrings. The lace bodice of her dress is particularly stunning, with an intricate black and white floral pattern. Beauty-wise, the Suits star wore her sleek long hair down with a hint of highlights. Her make-up was radiant, with smoky eyes and a golden eyeshadow. She complemented her look with a natural pink lip gloss.
