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 Carmen (48.2% Perfection!/26.8% So close/16.1% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/8.9% Who do this to you?) wearing Steve Madden cork wedges, a silk dress from a forgotten Italian boutique and a single pearl pendant necklace.
On the right, we have our NYC contender Dan (57.4% Perfection!/27.7% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/14.9% Who did this to you?) wearing glasses and a t-shirt from Marc Jacobs, H&M cut offs, a vintage belt and Nike sneakers.
