The 15 Craziest New York Fashion Week Looks, Because Beading And Pom Poms Were Running Rampant On The Runway
Fashion Week, at least the New York Chapter, is finally over, bizarre looks and all. Aside from settings stylists, buyers, and celebrities scrambling for their favorite looks, the finale means that the rest of the world can finally attempt to piece together exactly what they just witnessed on the runway. Though Spring 2015's collections were far from the craziest to ever hit the runway, there were several head-scratchers, a handful of gasp-inducing looks, and a few ensembles that caused whiplash from disbelieving double-takes. In case you're not sure where to start with all of the fashionable mayhem, here are the fifteen craziest looks off the Spring 2015 runway. Buyer beware: these ensembles aren't for the faint of heart.

J. Mendel Spring 2015
I’m willing to wager even the most devout fashionistas have never seen fur this electric bright before, amiright?
Proenza Schouler Spring 2015
What is black, white, and red all over? This patent leather jumpsuit, unfortunately.
Anna Sui Spring 2015
This psychedelic, see-through mini ensemble is downright fearless, from shimmering fabric down to its golden lace-up boots.
Betsey Johnson Spring 2015
It is nearly impossible to zero in on the wildest look from Betsey Johnson’s latest show. Was it the yellow, ’80s-inspired “Prenup” crop top? The mini dress that looked like lacy lingerie? In my humble opinion, this cropped, feathered, bedazzled and barely-there ensemble wins for most outlandish, if only because it appears to be held in place solely by plumes.
Delpozo Spring 2015
The muted pastels and blooming silhouettes on Delpozo’s Spring 2015 runway were breathtaking, but this symmetrically swirled number nonetheless evokes E.T.’s eyes when the martial asks Drew Barrymore to call home. Maybe I’m overthinking this.
Jeremy Scott Spring 2015
Though the majority of Jeremy Scott’s presentation were stereotypically incomprehensible, this neon, fluffy, metallic number stood out as especially outré.
Osklen Spring 2015
I’m dubbing this furry Osklen number “Caveman Chic.”
Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015
Does this look scream borderline “glam rock” to anyone else? The pattern alone is intoxicating, hypnotic perfection.
Rodarte Spring 2015
I’m not sure that any future Rodarte collection will ever achieve quite the epic status of the brand’s Star Wars-themed Fall 2014 runway, but this feathery disco ball of a creation comes close.
Libertine Spring 2015
Don’t adjust your computer screen: this Libertine sweater is indeed covered in multi-color pom-poms.
Libertine Spring 2015
One look simply isn’t enough to convey how bizarre Libertine’s collection truly was. Jeremy Scott, you have competition.
Thom Browne Spring 2015
No list of the craziest fashion week ensembles is complete without a mention of Thom Browne. Even the Mad Hatter would be unnerved by this chapeau.
Lisa Perry Spring 2015
If you’re tired of your average yellow slicker, slip this transparent coat on instead. It’s the next carnation of the clear tote trend.
Prabal Gurung Spring 2015
Talk about playing peekaboo. Is it a dress? A necklace? A scarf? This Prabal Gurung number is anyone’s guess.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015
Is it an oversized tee fused with a skirt, or a tee that was accidentally sewn onto a tutu? All jokes aside, I am genuinely curious what occurred to create this bizarre hybrid.
