If there's one couple we (always) keep close style tabs on, it's definitely Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. On Monday, the royal pair celebrated their second wedding anniversary, and while it feels like yesterday that we were floored by her custom Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, their second year as husband and wife has been filled with superchic — not to mention, monumental — moments for both. While Kate has become a master of high-low styling, favoring everything from Topshop and Whistles to Jenny Packham and Alexander McQueen, William is just as good at donning a cool mix of dapper suits and more casual fare. Lest we forget, the couple is expecting their first child in July, which means we're on baby bump watch, too! To fete William and Kate's wedding anniversary, we've rounded up their best fashion moments in the two years since tying the knot. Here are more than 150 photos to commemorate.

When the focal point of a beauty look is a giant cage mask, as it was on Alexander McQueen's Fall 2013 runway, you'd think that there wasn't much you could do with hair and makeup — but not at Alexander McQueen. Models at the show were done up in such a way that they resembled monarchs of the Elizabethan era. Ash-gray pin curls and matte pink lips stood out behind embellished cages. God save McQueen!
The look: Pin curls, flawless skin, matte pink lips.
Trends: Natural makeup.
Who would wear it: Queen Elizabeth I.
Sarah Burton said it all in just 10 exquisite looks for Alexander McQueen's Fall 2013. Ten breathtaking and bold nods to Elizabethan-era drama that we'll wait anxiously to see on the red carpet. This is not the stuff of Kate Middleton's wardrobe — the slim-cut pencil skirts and peplum-trimmed military jackets — it's a tour de force of the most intricate and beautifully crafted kind. White dresses were covered in pearls and decked in frothy white feathered sleeves and collars. Black high-collared, corseted confections, finished with caged legwear and delicate face masks were so awe-inspiring you hardly even noticed Karlie Kloss underneath all the detail. There was complexity in every look, and not just in the measure of materials (organza, lace, feathers, studding, netting, leather). It was all at once ethereal, powerful, regal, and incredibly beautiful. Burton makes crafting something otherworldly entirely possible; the bigger task is finding a real-life event worthy of wearing her work.
Salma Hayek delivered sexy in a less overt package via her high-neck Alexander McQueen number. It all started with a beautiful gold-embellished collar and ended with plush midnight blue velvet that hugged her curves. In the accessories realm, Salma carried a gold McQueen skull box clutch and wore a gold crown in her hair. Are you into Salma's ensemble?

Amanda Seyfried stood tall in an Alexander McQueen creation that was made just for her for the 2013 Oscars. The gown featured a dramatic high neck and a keyhole cutout that provided a sliver of sexiness. The stunning embellished detailing and subtle sheer skirt supplied a double dose of intrigue. Seyfried kept her baubles to a minimum, sticking to a pair of dainty earrings and one ring. How did she do tonight?

Rooney Mara and her costar Jude Law are currently touring the globe promoting their movie Side Effects, and for the latest premiere in Berlin, the actress chose a beautiful black Valentino Couture dress with a square neckline and asymmetrical hem. Upon her arrival, the actress covered up in an equally sleek black and white coat. So far, Rooney's promotion ensembles have been dark and moody, with mainly black pieces, but she did show off her lighter side in a white Alexander McQueen dress at the NYC premiere. For more of Rooney's fashion-forward style on tour, step inside to get a closer look.
A black pencil skirt is arguably one of the most versatile items in any lady's closet, and accordingly, should be a mandatory part of any style arsenal. It may have started as an office essential, but that doesn't mean this knee-length sheath is strictly business. Don't believe us? Watch as we put this basic to the test and style it out seven different ways — from work presentations to date-night and Sunday strolling, you'll be covered every day of the week.
Just the night before, Rooney Mara joined sister Kate on the red carpet for the premiere of her new show. Now Kate is returning the favor. The actress stepped out for the NYC premiere of Rooney's new film, Side Effects, and even followed up with a sweet tweet about her sister's performance. Aside from the family bonding, the sisters' arrivals again gave us a side-by-side comparison of their personal styles. They set the stage for a style battle with obvious contrasts. Rooney opted for a creamy white Alexander McQueen confection and Kate stepped out in a flirty LBD. But color palettes aside, there are a few common denominators. Each dress boasts a feminine fit-and-flare shape and a more fashion-forward cut. Kate's is certainly a more understated look, and the true beauty of Rooney's dress is in the gorgeous floral appliqués and embellishments. Rooney is also the first to bring McQueen's Pre-Fall '13 collection to the red carpet. As for the finishing touches, Kate looked to a sleek metallic clutch and Nicholas Kirkwood platform pumps with a little more personality, while Rooney let the gorgeous dress take the focus, also choosing Kirkwood heels, but more pared-down, nude peep-toes. That's the fashion breakdown. Now, study up and cast your vote for the sister who stole the spotlight on last night's red carpet.
