GQ didn’t alter January Jones’s breasts, Karl Lagerfeld calls model critics “fat mummies,” Torontonian named top fashion blogger

January Jones on the cover of GQ 

• The Telegraph has published a roundup of the 20 best fashion blogs. Included are some unsurprising picks (The Sartorialist, Bryanboy), but Toronto’s Tommy Ton also got a nod for the photo-heavy Jak and Jil Blog. [Telegraph]

• The 15th anniversary of Nars cosmetics is being fêted with a celebrity-packed coffee table book titled 15×15. Stealing more buzz than the tome itself is a photo inside of a shirtless Marc Jacobs in bright red lipstick and nails. The shot was inspired by a Richard Avedon picture of ’60s model China Machado. We get the pose and nail polish, but what’s with the trucker moustache? [WWD]

• Critical Shopper Mike Albo visits the Lululemon in Lincoln Square and discovers what Canadians have known for years: there’s no better gear for downward dogging than Lulus, not to mention how good they make our butt look at the gym. [New York Times]

Karl Lagerfeld is at it again. The sharp-tongued designer took a swipe at critics of ultra-thin models, telling Focus magazine that “These are fat mummies who sit with bags of potato chips in front of the television saying that thin models are ugly.” The comment came after a German fashion magazine banned models from its pages, electing to use “real” women instead. [The Independent]

• More unhealthy body image issues in the news: PRs at Ralph Lauren are working overtime to counter the allegation that the company fired a model for being too fat. Twenty-three-year-old Filippa Hamilton was five-foot-eight and 120 pounds when she received a notice that she was being let go. [Jezebel]

• Designer Yohji Yamamoto filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday (following in the steps of Gianfranco Ferré and Christian Lacroix) but may have found a saviour in the Japanese private equity fund Integral Corp. [Vogue.com]

•  In a side-by-side comparison of January Jones’s breasts at the Emmys with her November cover of GQ, Jones’s Emmys chest appears to come up…flat. The GQ shot, in which Mrs. Draper wears a leather jacket unzipped to reveal a rather sizable décolletage, contrasts sharply with her more modest-looking endowment at the awards show. GQ has of course denied any major manipulation, saying that it was simply photographer Terry Richardson’s choice of lighting that made her look so busty. Do they sell this lighting in real life?
