Los Angeles Street Style
Wow, I can't believe there isn't a thread on Los Angeles street style yet. I thought I searched properly....
Anyways, LA street style is the BEST ONE I've seen so far... Angelos simply ROCK the street fashion. I'll try to find some pictures

Since no one walks in LA can there really be a street style? Most of those pictures look posed/at events, so agaom that isnt really street style. I am fascinated with LA, but I think it is going to be very hard to find pictures of street style....

Oh my god, you are so right. When I was there, I basically spent all day in a car, and I couldn't get a sense at all of what the street style is. But then I discovered Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, which is a really nice pedestrian (!!!) shopping street. But I don't have any pictures.

Well, there are some pedestrian area in the city, other than the Third Street Promanade mentioned above, there're also the Melrose Avenue, Hollywood Boulvard, Rodeo Drive, a part of Wilshire and all the shopping centers/plazas the city is full of. There are also the beaches, the Santa Monica Pier...etc. I didn't yet search for pictures, but I will...

Although, Yeah, you're right to some extend, people do spend most of their time in cars there, but I hope we can find pics of street style of those places I mentioned.

thanks for the pics, space especially love those two pics of the girls in little vintage white dresses, as well as the girl in red tights.

it seems a lot of the pics in the scene street style thread also count as LA streetstyle as well because thecobrasnake pics are from LA.

I agree. Not much 'street style' in LA. We have lot's of indoor places though, so that's kind of a street style.

Yeah ... people do really walk in L.A. in their own neighborhoods and they are many and diverse ... but we do spend a lot of time in cars and getting exercise at the gym, instead of walking.

Other good areas for walking around and people watching include; Westwood Village just outside UCLA, Montana Street in Santa Monica, Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood, Belmont Shores near Long Beach, Larchmont Blvd. near Hancock Park, Leimert Park, Toluca Lake, Studio City and Old Town Pasadena. And there's lots of neighborhoods that are just now changing from a bit scary to having more artists lofts and interesting shops anc cafe's ... like the Arts District downtown.

I also wanted to mention the the Getty images are probably not true street style ... since most photographers actually pay models or ask friends to pose, get model releases and then sell them through Getty for commercial uses. So the main people in these images probably have been asked to dress a certain way or have been styled ... no spontanaity.

I agree with that, but I just thought those pics are very representative of what people dress like in the city (at least, as far as what I saw is concerned).
