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:

Designer Sensen Lii of Windowsen was inspired by aliens and monsters (and maybe Gucci?) for his show (part of the VFIles presentation) on Sept. 5 in Brooklyn.

This show-stopping yellow number had all the heads turning.

This look was more loofah than alien, but who says aliens can't also look like loofahs?

This closing look definitely brought the drama.

The Marc Jacobs show took ruffles to new heights, or should we say to new volumes?

The sparkly, ruffled dress is pretty much the definition of extra, and we don't hate it.

This coat by designer Yufei Liu (from the Rhode Island School of Design) definitely falls squarely into the "oversized" trend box and it's anything but basic.
