Britney Spears marries Sam Asghari
After a years long legal battle that had the world chanting #freebritney, Britney Spears was back in the pop culture spotlight which found her in wedded bliss with fiance, now husband, Sam Asghari. The happy couple celebrated their wedding in an intimate Los Angeles venue with the likes of Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Drew Berrymore, among others in attendance. Also on the guest list was Donatella Versace, who also designed custom looks for the bride and groom. For the wedding dress, the Versace Atelier crafted a silk cady off the shoulder creation complete with a cathedral length tulle veil trimmed in silk satin. Mr. Asghari’s custom double breasted tuxedo was made of black wool with a silk satin lapel and matching bowtie.
There is always a certain sense of expectation that award shows will bring out the most eccentric and avant garde fashions of the year. For this year’s Tony’s, the looks were inspiring but of a more subtle variety. Floor length ball gowns were on the mind with unique details that took the looks from classically stylish to a modern height with an artistic flare. We saw Jessica Chastain channeling a color of the moment, pink , strapless and structured Gucci gown. Vanessa Hudgens was stunning in a ruched, black column Schapareli number. Cynthia Erivo looked ethereal in a flowing Giambattista Valli Haute Couture hooded gown. The stars showed up and didn’t disappoint.

The Duchess quite rightly stole the show on day four of The Royal Ascot as she channeled Princess Diana in a gorgeous polka-dot Alessandra Rich dress, very reminiscent of the iconic 1930’s silhouette.
