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.

After a brief dalliance with color, Adele returned to her signature black in an embellished Jenny Packham gown on the Oscars red carpet. The singer, who will perform her Oscar-nominated Skyfall theme song during the show, proved that black is anything but boring; just look to her head-to-toe sparkle (including Harry Winston diamonds) for evidence. Are you into Adele's Oscars ensemble?

Julianne Hough has majorly stepped up her style for the Safe Haven promo tour, and we've certainly taken notice. We had a chance to catch up with the on-the-rise starlet at the launch of her shoe line for Sole Society, and she dished on everything from her personal style to her go-to brands and her thoughts on the sneaker craze (spoiler alert: she's sold). Keep reading for Julianne's stylish reveals.
PopSugar: How would you describe your personal style?
Julianne Hough: Feminine with a little bit of an edge, especially with my haircut. I feel so much more sassy and free with it, and I feel like I can wear these fun high-collared shirts and kind of business-y things, but it's still feminine with boyish kind of clothes. I'm still kind of figuring out what I like, but what I love is that I like to try different things, and it might not work, but at least I tried it.
PS: What's your shoe personality?
JH: Fashion-forward and sassy, but a little bit classy, too. I like a classy statement heel that you can wear with jeans, wear with a dress during the day, and dress up at night, but that are also fun and colorful.
With a celebrity fan base including Taylor Swift, Angelina Jolie, and Kate Middleton, it's no surprise that Jenny Packham is one of the most sought-after dress designers of the moment. We caught up with her backstage at her Fall 2013 runway show to talk about what inspired her decadent Parisian-chic collection, as well as her definition of modern elegance. See what she had to say — and find out which pieces she's loving most from her line — when you watch our interview now.
Jenny Packham went back to 17th-century Paris for her Fall '13 collection, showing us a stunning lineup of shimmery looks for day and night. Shrunken metallic knit sweaters were paired with sweeping silk skirts, knit sheaths showcased dazzling embellishments, while full, knee-length skirts received a glam update in rich, jewel-toned hues. Meanwhile, Packham's red-carpet crowd will not be disappointed with her latest offerings; from rhinestone-embellished gowns to a sleek black number featuring sheer cutouts, there was enough around to please every sartorial taste.
Jenny Packham's Fall 2013 collection took its inspiration from the great intellectual salons — the salonnières — of 17th-century Paris, and the cultured women who frequented them. And just like the splendor of the rooms that came before, the gowns were dripping in equally rich hues and sparkling embellishments. Ruby red, burnt cinnamon, teal, navy, and black provided the color foundation for Packham's eveningwear, while the cuts vacillated between slim and streamlined, and gauzy voluminous princess silhouettes. There were certainly some Oscar red-carpet contenders to be found (we're looking at you, black cutout fishtail gown), and a jewel-toned thigh-high split number we hope Kate Middleton nabs for herself.
The pared down beauty was simple, but thoughtful at the Jenny Packham Fall 2013 show. Because the pieces in the collection — from the clothes to the jewelry and handbags — were so ornate, the team of hair, makeup, and nail pros left the beauty look a little understated yet elegant.
The look: A loose ponytail with a ribbon, glowing skin, and a gradient glitter manicure
The inspiration: 17th century opulence
Trends: Nail art
Makeup: "We wanted the makeup to look expensive," said lead makeup artist Talia Shobrook, who created the minimal look using Laura Mercier products. There was an emphasis on a glowing complexion, which was attained by using the Mega-Moisturizer Crème all over the skin with a touch of foundation. Shobrook accented the dewy look with lipstick as blush, while Tawny Eye Basics was swept on lids and Caviar Stick in Seashell was drawn along the crease.
Hair: Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé created a simple, loose ponytail. First, she applied 24 Hour Body Blow Dry Lotion for lift and hold and blow-dried with a flat brush to achieve a straight look. She parted the hair in the center and gently teased the midlengths for a little shape in the back of the ponytail. She let any face-framing layers fall out, and tied the look with a ribbon for that 17th century feel.
Nails: The sparkling nails were created by Gina Edwards for Essie. To complement the lavish jewelry and handbags in the collection, Edwards decided to paint on a gradient nail art design using Essie Luxeffects in Set in Stones. She applied the glitter polish at the center of the nail and then tapped the brush back and forth to the tip to form the cascading look.
Julianne Hough sure is keeping us on our toes tonight! The actress went from pretty-pretty princess in a frothy Monique Lhuillier gown at this evening's Golden Globes to a sleek, ultrasexy blush-hued Jenny Packham dress for InStyle's annual afterparty. The silky side panels and beaded, structured shoulders gave this gown a ballerina-gone-bad look, which we're really loving — and while we didn't get a glimpse of Julianne's enviable curves earlier, her costume change definitely put them on display here. What do you think of her afterparty ensemble?

Catherine Zeta-Jones glided onto the Golden Globes stage in a '20s-inspired cream and silver Jenny Packham gown. The embellished top, along with its sheer sleeves, glimmered against the Baroque metallic design. And wait for it — the dynamic top half transitioned into a flowing silver pinstriped skirt. Catherine styled her hair in soft curls, which complemented her vintage-inspired gown, while a few select jewels (look at her stunning bracelet!) made her ready to present the award. What do you think of her silver-embellished look?
