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 Alexander (78.8% Perfection!/17.7% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/3.5% Who did this to you?) wearing a Zara shirt, pants by Costello (bought in France), Paul Smith shoes, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and a Puma bag. On the right, we have our LA contender Kimberly Robin (35.8% Perfection!/15.8% So close/15.8% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/32.6% Who do this to you?) wearing Christian Lacroix wedges, a Hale Bob dress, a Cartier watch, and Chanel sunglasses.
