Time for a fun new game, folks. We've picked the highest-ranked Street Scenes subjects of the past week from Racked NY and Racked LA; now you decide which coast has the best style.
On the left we have our NYC contender, Stewart, (68.9% Perfection!/20.6% I feel strangely ambivalent about it./10.5% Who did this to you?) wearing jeans and a cardigan from A.P.C., a Hanes tee and Johnston & Murphy shoes. On the right we have our LA contender, Giovanna, (43.2% Perfection!/17% So close./27.3% I feel strangely ambivalent about it./12.5% Who do this to you?) dressed in a Forever 21 dress, earrings from Puerto Rico, Gucci sunglasses, Gracie sandals and a Louis Vuitton purse.
