Rihanna at the American Music Awards. Hm, we're on
the fence about this one...

• Experts predict 440 retailers will collapse before the end of April in the U.K. this year, compared with 367 last year. Sheesh. [Independent]

• Macy's will add FAO Schwarz toy stores to 675 of its locations so they can save money on rent. Because Macy's needs more stroller traffic. [Luxist]

• Do you think Rihanna was the most stylish star of 2008? Readers of this Website do. []

• Model Catherine McNeil was spotted with an ankle wrap and crutches in Australia. Cause of injury remains unknown. [Fashionologie]

• P. Diddy doesn't want to spend $50,000 on an inauguration ticket. He apparently thinks he can "just show up" like it's Bungalow 8. [NYP]
