Wedding of the year
To celebrate their nuptials on 9 June in California, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari wore custom Atelier Versace. Spears was elegant in a white silk cady that features a portrait neckline that wraps around the shoulders and comes together with a stream of pearl buttons. The seamline of the bodice follows the corset boning that narrows at the waist. The column silhouette is cut with a front leg slit, while the back pleats from the waist cascade into a 3m train. The veil is crafted from 4.5m of silk tulle trimmed in silk satin.
Asghari matched his bride in style with a black wool tuxedo that features a double-breasted peak lapel jacket with silk satin details and pants with a banded belt at the waist. A white shirt with a traditional smoking collar was paired with a matching black, silk bow tie and black loafers.
