Britney Spears may be a star but at her wedding to Sam Asghari, as in most of her life, drama was happening all around the bride. This time the drama was not related to the conservatorship Spears was controlled by for 13 years, which ended in November, but one of a much lighter kind: the style from guests at the celebration held at her Los Angeles home.
Following the 10-minute ceremony, Madonna, Paris Hilton, Drew Barrymore, Donatella Versace and Selena Gomez posed beside the bride, sending a message to the combined social media following of 429.5 million that a wedding doesn’t have to be just one person’s fashion moment.
Spears wore four outfits at the wedding, changing from a custom white-off-the shoulder dress with a slit in the skirt and satin-edged veil into a red, fringe-sleeved mini-dress, then a two-toned mini-dress before appearing on the dance floor in a blazer-dress covering a diamond g-string. All the dresses were by Versace, with some fulfilling the singer’s princess fantasy.
Like a remix of the Spears’ hit Toxic playing in a gay bar at 2am, the outfits made you smile but didn’t bust new moves. The wedding dresses were upgraded versions of the singers’ noughties image, without the Von Dutch cap and Starbucks cup.
It was Spears’ eclectic guests who delivered a masterclass in big bridesmaid energy without having to touch taffeta, walk down the aisle or dance the Macarena with a groomsman.
Top marks go to actor turned talk show host Barrymore in a dress that broke modern wedding guest traditions of colour and silhouette. Like Spears, Barrymore’s fashion past is as torrid as the tabloids, last scoring big in a 1993 Guess denim campaign, but in a voluminous chocolate, cape-sleeved Valentino gown she combined polish with Californian cool.
Brown is not the go-to colour for most wedding guests. When you visit the Wedding Guest edit on Net-A-Porter, there is one brown dress. Search “pink” and 51 items of clothing appear. On Barrymore, the colour looked sophisticated against the blush backdrop of the reception, coordinated by celebrity event producer Jeffrey Best.
The roomy nature of the dress, perfect for indulging in the chicken, beef and vegan offerings at weddings, also challenged notions that a fitted silhouette is required to stand out.
