Britney Spears wore an elegant, bespoke Versace gown to wed personal trainer and model Sam Asghari Thursday at an intimate wedding ceremony outside of Los Angeles.

The pop princess completed her outfit with a dramatic satin-edged veil and a white choker as she tied the knot at her home in Thousand Oaks, California.

After months of speculation as to who would design Spears’ dress, the singer reportedly revealed in a since-deleted Instagram post last year that “Versace is making my dress as we speak.” The brand’s Chief Creative Officer, Donatella Versace, confirmed their engagement on Friday, revealing on social media that her label also designed Asghari’s tuxedo.

The Italian designer posted a picture of the newlyweds to Instagram and wrote that Spears holds “a very special place in my heart.”

“Designing Britney and Sam’s wedding outfits came naturally to me,” she wrote in the accompanying caption. “An incredible amount of love was put into every detail. Together with our atelier we have created a dress and a tuxedo that exudes elegance and glamour. They look just perfect together!”

Versace joined a star-studded guest list that included Lady Gaga, Madonna and Selena Gomez.

With a classic silhouette and 10-foot train, the design featured a plunging neckline and off-the-shoulder cap sleeves. The fitted bodice of the dress was pleated in the front, while the skirt parted into a deep V-shaped leg slit.

A Versace rep told CNN that Spears also wore beaded tulle gloves and a pair of white satin pumps. It took the fashion house’s tailors over 700 hours to create the dress.

According to Vogue, Spears feature 62 carats of diamonds in the form of a tennis necklace, tennis bracelet and teardrop earrings. Her bridal makeup was the work of British makeup artists Charlotte and Sofia Tilbury, with the former telling the fashion magazine that she was “thrilled and honored” to be working with Spears on her bridal look.

According to Vogue, there were three outfit changes during the evening. Spears later appeared in a red mini dress, a black mini dress and a two-tone outfit – all designed by Versace.

Asghari, who Spears met on the set of her music video “Slumber Party” in 2016, meanwhile wore a black wool tuxedo to the ceremony. His suave Versace jacket had silk satin detailing and was paired with a white shirt, black loafers and a black silk bow tie.

Spears’ wedding dress bore some similarities to the one she wore to Kevin Federline’s 2004 wedding. Dress with a stand-up collar and an open back.

Speaking to CNN last year, Lhuillier said she had just three weeks to design and make the wedding and reception dresses, as well as the dresses for the entire bridal party. “(I told them) ‘OK, we’ll get it done. Don’t worry,'” she recalled, “but inside I was dying.”
Spears’ first husband, Jason Alexander (to whom she was married just 55 hours before the marriage was annulled in 2014), tried to crash the star’s nuptials on Thursday. He was arrested and charged with trespassing and assault, police said.
The wedding comes nearly seven months after Spears won a legal battle against her longtime conservatorship, a binding legal agreement that barred her from marrying or having children. In April, she and Asghari announced they were expecting a baby.
