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 Vox.com, 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 LA and Racked NY; now you decide which coast has the best style.

On the left, we have our LA contender Jessica (25.4% Perfection!/22.5% So close/40.8% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/11.3% Who did this to you?) wearing a dress, shoes and jewelry from various Downtown LA boutiques and Chanel glasses.

On the right, we have our NYC contender Elaine (74.6% Perfection!/11% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/14.3% Who did this to you?) wearing a coat from Banks (a furrier downtown), a Ruffalo suit, glasses from Friedrich's Optik and Milano Blanco shoes and carrying a Chanel bag.
