Britney Spears and Sam Asghari officially tied the knot on Thursday, June 9. The singer looked stunning in a custom Versace gown during the ceremony, held at their private residence in Los Angeles. Since sharing that Donatella Versace was her wedding-dress designer last November, fans eagerly awaited the reveal, and the anticipation was worth it. The wedding gown totally delivered in effortless sophistication and silhouette mastery.
The white off-the-shoulder dress featured a plunging neckline and a corseted top with a boned bodice. It flowed into a maxi skirt with a thigh-high slit on the left and a long cascading train attached to the back. She paired the gown with a floor-grazing sheer veil, enhancing the romantic elegance of the ensemble. Spears accessorized with a white ribbon choker necklace with a gold jewel at the center and sheer gloves matching her veil. She exclusively wore jewelry from Stephanie Gottlieb as she walked down the aisle. Her blond waves, parted in the middle, fell past her shoulders while her makeup mostly consisted of a smoky eye, pink blush and lip. Spears later changed into different outfits for the ceremony, one of which involved a mini red body-con dress with fringe sleeves. Meanwhile, Asghari looked dapper next to her in a black tuxedo suit.
The couple got married in front of their friends, including Madonna, Paris Hilton, Kathy Hilton and Drew Barrymore. This is Spears’s third marriage, and she wears a beautiful round-cut diamond engagement ring from New York City jeweler Roman Malayev as a token of their love. Last year, Britney indulged in a photo shoot wearing a sugar-pink gown with off-the-shoulder sleeves and a boned corset, using the opportunity to post a few pics on Instagram for her supportive fans and clarify that, although pretty, the dress is not the one she’ll be wearing down the aisle. “No … this is not my wedding dress 👗 bahahah !!!! Donatella Versace is making my dress as we speak 🤫 …. Have a good night folks 🌙💖✨ !!!!” Britney teased.
Spears enjoyed moments in Versace in the 2000s, both when she wore a sparkling mesh minidress to the 2008 MTV VMAs and when she attended the Milan-based fashion house’s spring 2003 show in Milan, posing with Donatella backstage (as seen in the photo above). The designer even recounted the memory back in May, writing on her Instagram, “I’ll never forget when you came and stayed with me Britney, you were and will always be magical!!!!” We can’t wait to see what Britney and Donatella will dream up for the special day to come. We can only hope they’ll be influenced by the glitz and glam of Britney’s style in the early aughts, because we still are.
