Britney Spears and Sam Asghari officially tied the knot on Thursday, June 9. The singer looked stunning in a custom Versace dress at the ceremony, which was held at their private residence in Los Angeles. Ever since she shared that Donatella Versace was her wedding dress designer last November, fans have been eagerly awaiting the reveal, and the anticipation was well worth it. The wedding dress totally delivered in effortless sophistication and mastery of silhouette.
The white off-the-shoulder dress featured a plunging neckline and a corseted top with a boned bodice. He flowed in a long skirt with a thigh-high slit on the left and a long cascading train tied in the back. She paired the dress with a floor-skimming sheer veil, enhancing the romantic elegance of the whole ensemble. Spears accessorized with a white ribbon choker necklace with a gold jewel in the center and transparent gloves to match her veil. She wore exclusively Stephanie Gottlieb jewelry as she walked down the aisle. Her blonde waves, parted in the middle, fell over her shoulders while her makeup mainly consisted of a smoky eye, pink blush and a lip. Spears then changed into different outfits for the ceremony, one of which involved a red bodycon mini dress with fringed sleeves. Meanwhile, Asghari looked dapper next to her in a black tuxedo suit.
The couple tied the knot in front of their friends, including Madonna, Paris Hilton, Kathy Hilton and Drew Barrymore. This is Spears’ third marriage, and she wears a beautiful round diamond engagement ring by New York jeweler Roman Malayev as a token of their love. Last year, Britney indulged in a photoshoot wearing a candy pink dress with off-the-shoulder sleeves and a boned corset, taking the opportunity to post a few pics on Instagram for her supportive fans and clarify that, although pretty, the dress is not one she will wear down the aisle. “No…that’s not my wedding dress 👗 bahahah!!!! Donatella Versace is making my dress right now 🤫….Good night folks 🌙💖✨!!!!” Britney teased.
Spears enjoyed moments at Versace in the 2000s, both when she wore a sparkly 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 in May, writing on her Instagram, “I’ll never forget when you came and stayed with me Britney, you were and always will be magical!!!!” We can’t wait to see what Britney and Donatella come up with for the special day ahead. We can only hope they’re influenced by the glitz and glamor of Britney’s early ’00s style, because we still are.
