Britney Spears married her fiancé Sam Asghari in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles on Thursday — and her bridal look was befitting of a pop princess. The pop star, 40, walked down in the aisle in a stunning gown custom made by Donatella Versace herself. The white silk cady design — which was hand crafted by the Atelier Versace tailors over 700 hours — featured a classic silhouette and portrait neckline that wraps around the shoulders and connects together with a stream of pearl buttons down the back. The design also included a front leg-slit and a 10-foot train. "Designing Britney and Sam's wedding outfits came naturally to me," Donatella shares in a statement obtained by PEOPLE. "A tremendous amount of love was poured into every detail. Together with our Atelier, we created a gown and tuxedo that exudes elegance and glamour. They look just perfect together!"

Merritt/Getty Britney Spears Shows Off Engagement Ring While Celebrating 'Wonderful' Fiancé Sam Asghari's Birthday Earlier this month, Asghari opened up to GQ about the significance of Spears' engagement ring. "I figured with her taste, she wouldn't want something super big and super celebrity. Celebrities get that million dollar ring. And usually, it's free because it's for promotion, but I want it to represent something," he shared. "I want it to come from my heart and I want it to go to someone that wasn't a big jeweler. It was a big company but it was a company that was willing to do it the way that I wanted it." "So I designed a really beautiful ring. It's a princess cut, for a real life princess," he added. The singer and actor-fitness enthusiast were first romantically linked after meeting on the set of Spears' "Slumber Party" music video in 2016.
