Here's what happened today in Racked cities around the country:
LOS ANGELES—Experience the Met Ball through the private photos of LA lady Rachel Zoe. The delightfully unprofessional pics are made ten times better by extra spooky red eye.
NEW YORK—In more Met Ball news, if you're planning to make it over to the museum's Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition this summer, here's what to expect from the gift shop (Spoiler alert: Find Prada shoes for $30!)
CHICAGO—Chicago-based boutique Art Effects is kind of perfect for Mother's Day shopping. Check out your best bets for gifts and don't forget to order in time (T-minus five days, folks!).
