Gal-of-the-moment, Rihanna, obviously feels that safety really does work better in numbers, as she hit Milan's shopping precinct this week. Clad in Stella McCartney, the singer spent up big at Missoni and Burberry, before paying a visit to a jewellery shop, all while accompanied by an entourage of friends, stylists, and a big burly bodyguard. Yes, it's not the most discreet way to shop, but it's practical - the more people in your troupe, the more hands to carry your bags.
