Street Scenes East-West Friday Face Off: Nyeaka vs Alex

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

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 Nyeaka (48.9% Perfection!/24.1% So close/11% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/16% Who did this to you?) whose entire outfit (save her bag, which is from a thrift store) is Zara.

On the right, we have our LA contender Alex (30.9% Perfection!/33.3% So close/22.2% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/13.6% Who did this to you?) wearing a jumper from a vintage store in Austin, TX; a hat from American Vintage; and shoes from a garage sale.
