Grab The Red Bull: 39 Pics From Our Late Night NYFW Party

We're not exactly sure what day it is. With a non-existent Saturday and Sunday, i.e. yes, we were at the office, you can bet your behind that we've been tapping our stash of Mexican Preparation H (apparently it has an ingredient banned in the US) to make those under-eye circles not pop in pictures. So, last night, you can imagine we were a bit nervous to make it through our Late Night Fashion Week celebration at the Mondrian penthouse (transformed into a den of iniquity, complete with neon lights and a screening of American Gigolo) — we're talking a start time of 10 p.m. and no set ending.
Luckily, Red Bulls were aplenty, copious Tanteo Jalapeno tequila shots were to be had (not to mention margs, Sailor Jerry rum, Tito's handmade vodka, beer, and wine — yeah, uh, think we had the liquor thing covered?), neon Crumbs cupcakes, and girls in Robert Palmer-inspired outfits passing around trays of Ring Pops, Fireballs, candy cigarettes, condoms, and yes, real cigs, we weren't thinking about snuggling under our down comforter with the A.C. blasting. And, it seemed, neither were our seven hosts — Pamela Love, Waris Ahluwalia, Laure Heriard Dubreuil, Sean Avery, Peter Som, Lola Rykiel, and Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear — who hit the outdoor dance floor hard, boogieing to a special set by It model Chloe Norgaard and tunage from our perennial favorite, DJ Chelsea Leyland. Other R29 friends got into the after-hours vibe with us, including Lorenzo Martone (who brought along the sky-high model Nadeja Savcova), Johan Lindeberg, style star Natalie Joos, Lulu Frost's Lisa Salzer, Vena Cava designers Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai, Nicole Trunfio, Girls star Zosia Mamet, Yigal Azrouël, and artist Aaron Young, to name just a very few. Oh, and Ryan Lochte, who seems easy with his recent fame, posing for snaps with every beautiful girl in sight. Sure, today we're not on our A-game, but neither is pretty much anyone else in our office, meaning nobody's noticing the red Gatorade, massive Westville order, and the handful of Advil on hand — the real sign that we threw an #R29rager worth the extra concealer. And, yes, illegal Prep H.
