The ongoing debate on the nature of street style and how it has become a bit of an industry in its own right has left some people feeling a little disappointed. With street-style fixtures like Rumi Neely and Leandra Medine getting paid big bucks to wear designers' clothing, there's a sense that these "candid" fashion moments are no longer authentic or organic. Not only has the industry banked on these street-style celebrities as a form of advertisement, famous photographers like Scott Schuman and Garance Doré (both of whom we admire) are also getting a piece of the pie through book sales — and even posters priced at $40 a pop. While there's no denying that the street-style momentum is still in full force, we want to hear your thoughts: is street style getting too commercial?
