New York Fashion Week may be over, but Fashion Month is still happening! And our Fashion Director Elle Strauss is forever on the lookout for some seriously cool big-day inspiration. The latest looks to catch her eye? Dolce & Gabbana's Spring 2016 runway show at Milan Fashion Week, which was rife with honeymoon inspiration. Before you pack your bags, take a look at these getaway-worthy picks!

"Italia is love" was the title of Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer show at Milan Fashion Week — and it's the perfect place to start gathering inspiration for any bride-to-be looking for some Honeymoon packing essentials.

Inspired by all thing Italian — think popular Italian tourist attractions from Pisa to Pizza — Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana sent beautifully embroidered and embellished pieces down their runway, while all of the models captured these postcard-worthy looks by taking selfies as they walked. And these ensembles are just as picture-perfect on the runway as they are for your honeymoon!

A few post-wedding getaway favorites include pom pom straw bags, a must for carrying around on sightseeing days, and the ornate floral and fruit head dresses. Silk-printed scarves paired with seductive lace, chinoiserie, stripes and crocheted 50s-style dresses were some other runway delights just begging to be worn to an afternoon lunch with your new hubby.

There was, of course, major beauty inspiration too — flawlessly finished with the Dolce classic winged eyeliner and a punchy stained red lip will take you from day to night on your far-flung adventure!

New York Fashion Week may have just recently ended, but that doesn't mean there still isn't major bridal inspiration to be found from the recent runway shows! From pre-wedding party attire to must-have big-day accessories, the bi-annual fashion event offered up delectable styles for brides-to-be. Our Fashion Director Elle Strauss was on-hand to witness all of the whimsical, modern, and inventive creations first hand, and is here to report back her favorites. Here, she retrospectively looks back at two of her favorite shows, and what their gorgeous gowns could add to your wedding.

Two of my favorite shows from Spring/Summer New York Fashion Week — which just wrapped up and has now moved on to London — were Proenza Schouler and Oscar de la Renta. You wouldn't typically group Oscar's polished, uptown aesthetic with Proenza's modern, downtown style, but this season, both lines coincidentally looked to Spain for inspiration. At Proenza, that translated to sleek, feminine frills and — another one of the week's prominent trends — shoulder-baring necklines (perfect for a wedding, no?). On the other hand, at Oscar, designer Peter Copping went for a more traditional take on the señorita style with satin, ruffled floor-length gowns that were accessorized with black ribbons in the models' low ponytails and finished with matte red lips.

If you're flirting with the idea of having a European influence at your wedding, culling aesthetic inspiration from Spain, as Proenza Schouler and Oscar de la Renta did, offers something that both uptown and downtown girls will love.

New York Spring Summer Fashion Week 2016 Beauty Marchesa Carolina Herrera

New York Fashion Week always offers a bevy of fresh ideas, which for us (and you) equals a whole lot of bridal beauty inspiration. Here, the looks we loved that will suit any bride's wedding-day aesthetic.

For the daring bride (left):
"This look is what girls really want: gorgeous skin and a cool lip color," said makeup artist Gucci Westman backstage at the Marchesa show. (And we agree: Paired with luminous skin, a bold lip color can make your wedding look.) For the gorgeous skin, she used a lot of SK-II: the Facial Treatment Mask, Facial Treatment Essence, Cellumination Cream EX, and Mid-Day Essence Spray. Next, she applied MAC Strobe Cream, a luminizing moisturizer, to the eyelids, cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupid's bow. For those rich, orchid lips, Westman made her own concoction using four — yes four! — products: two lip glosses and two lipsticks. For a similar, simpler effect, try MAC Matte Lipstick in All Fired Up. And with such a statement on the lips, a simple chignon was all that was needed. Hairstylist Calero flat-ironed the hair, then gathered it into a low ponytail, twisted it clockwise, and wrapped it into a bun. He left two inches of the ends to peek out from the top of the chignon and secured it in place with hair pins.

For the girly bride (right):
From the pale pink pleated dresses to the actual location of the show (it was held at The Frick Collection, an art museum in New York City), everything about Carolina Herrera's show was super pretty. For the makeup, Diane Kendal focused on shades of pink, using MAC Powder Blush in BlushBaby, a dusty pink, and MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Personal Statement (available Spring 2016), a pastel pink. To get the center-parted waves, hairstylist Orlando Pita applied Tresemmé Runway Collection Get Sleek Blow Dry Balm to damp hair and dried it with a round brush. He then separated the hair into 2-inch sections before using a 1.5-inch barrel curling wand to create loose "S-bend" waves.

For the whimsical bride (left):
The inspiration behind Delpozo's show was Gypsy Ballads, a poetry collection by Spanish writer Romancero Gitano, and Emilie Flöge, muse to painter Gustav Klimt. Beauty-wise, this translated into long, fairytale-esque twisted ponytails (which hairstylist and Moroccanoil creative director, Antonio Corral Calero, created with extensions) and hardly any makeup, save for highlighter patted on the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and cupid's bow, along with pink lipstick that was blended into the cheeks. (Feel free to add some foundation and mascara on your own big day though!) But what we really love about the look, of course, was the silver glitter on the eyes, which makeup artist Monica Marmo secured in place using MAC Mixing Medium Eyeliner.

For the bohemian bride (right):
For the poetic look at the Rodarte show, hairstylist Odile Gilbert applied Kérastase Powder Bluff, a dry shampoo, to amp up the hair's texture, then rough dried it. She finished by fastening on gold floral barrettes — such a cool upgrade to the standard flower crown. Then, makeup artist James Kaliardos focused on creating "a dewy glow — a fresh, youthful color based upon the sunrise and horizon." He first perfected the skin with cream concealer and pressed powder. Next, on both the eyes and cheeks, he used NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Craving, a seashell pink and bronze duo, and finished with Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Belle de Jour.

New York Spring Summer Fashion Week 2016 Beauty Yigal Azrouel Oscar de la Renta

For the uptown bride (left):
At the Oscar de la Renta show, the look was youthful and polished, thanks to a center-parted ponytail finished with a black ribbon. Instead of tying it into a bow, hairstylist Guido created one loop with the ribbon to make it feel "romantic and feminine." Then, makeup artist Diane Kendal filled in the brows, traced a thin line of black cream eyeliner on the upper lids, added pearlescent eye shadow, muted pink blush, and red lips, which she achieved using MAC Lip Pencil in Follow Your Heart.

For the minimalist bride (right):
To go with the (mostly) black and white palette of the clothes, the models at Yigal Azrouël wore equally simple hair and makeup. Slicked back ponytails and brushed-up, groomed eyebrows were the key points of the look. But even a super stark aesthetic requires some makeup. In this case, that meant a touch of yellow eye shadow on the upper lids, nude lipstick, and tawny blush — but just enough to make it look like you woke up like this.
