If Mercedes Benz Fashion Week conjures up iconic New York scenes, fashion editors wrapped in the craziest coats you've ever laid eyes on, and of course, Bill Cunningham, you're a woman after our own hearts.

Because the Red Bull wakes you up, it makes you more likely to want to keep drinking ... and drinking. Whoops.
