The Black Halo “Jackie-O Belted Dress" is a classic (and retails for a kind-of, sort-of, if-you-feel-like-splurging affordable $375 (opens in new tab)). It is so classic, in fact, that Meghan is far from the first celebrity to sport it. The dress, which comes in a range of colors, has been a red carpet staple for years.

Blake Lively wore a white version of the dress to the 2007 CW Upfronts at Madison Square Garden in New York City:

As People (opens in new tab) reports, literally dozens of celebrities have been photographed in the iconic dress over the years. Other members of the Black Halo club include Britney Spears, Fergie, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Ripa, and Lisa Rinna. Welcome to the club, Meghan.
