Happy Royal Wedding Anniversary! Kate Middleton's Best Outfits of All Time

Can you believe it's been two full years since we gathered around our TVs—many of us in the wee hours of the morning—to watch Kate Middleton become Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge as she finally wed her Prince William? Incredibly, today marks the two-year anniversary of the Royal Wedding—and if it's even possible, our love for the perpetually well-dressed and graceful Duchess of Cambridge has only grown since she walked down the aisle in that custom Alexander McQueen. And now that the gorgeous public figure is pregnant—and rapidly nearing her mid-July due date—we can look forward to even more memorable mum-to-be ensembles in the weeks to come, not to mention all the baby clothes she's sure to be stockpiling.

Throughout her second year as a royal, Kate's kept her style game remarkably strong, turning up in all manner of swoonworthy looks by both her favorite British designers and high street labels. To wit, we've refreshed our ever-growing slideshow of Kate's best looks of all time—and those polished, figure-flattering dresses and coats just keep getting better. And the fascinators! Oh, the fascinators.

Click through to see all the outfits. And happy anniversary, Kate and Wills!
