The Most Over-The-Top Looks From New York Fashion Week's Spring 2019 Runways

Maybe we'll all be channeling aliens next spring.

Another New York Fashion Week has wrapped up, leaving us with plenty of looks that will be hard to forget. 

From Sept. 5 to 14, designers showcased their spring 2019 collections. There were tons of ruffles on the runways at Marc Jacobs and Rodarte, which made its return to New York after showing in Paris, an extra-large graduation cap and some sequined balaclavas that made models look like creatures from the black lagoon. 

Below, check out some of the most over-the-top looks we saw on the runways. They bring extra to a whole new level:
