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.

Here's what happened today in Racked cities around the country:

NEW YORK—If you've ever thought "Mannequins? Tell me more," here's your chance to learn all about them with the unlikely purveyor of mannequin history Joe Fresh and its display of renowned mannequin maker Ralph Pucci in the NYC store. (Bonus points: Guess which ones were inspired by Christy Turlington, Marilyn Monroe, and Anna Sui.)

LOS ANGELES—It must be Tuesday: Here are 13 pictures of Kim Kardashian's cat (which looks suspiciously like Choupette).

CHICAGO—See all the best pics from AKIRA's home-grown fashion show. It's their 10th Anniversary so they naturally did it up big.
