Editor’s Let­ter

Cosmopolitan (India) - - EDITOR’S LETTER - Nan­dini Bhalla, Editor

When I speak to Cosmo girls about how they feel this time of the year, I of­ten get told how stressed it makes them. “There’s just so much go­ing on,” one reader told me, “and the an­tic­i­pa­tion and ex­pec­ta­tion is over­whelm­ing!” I to­tally agree. De­cem­ber is like the Olympics of ‘liv­ing your life’, where you race to have the best time, be the best dressed in the room, and gen­er­ally make the most of an­other year com­ing to an end. But those are the ex­act rea­sons your month should not be stress­ful—it should be fun! — and that’s where Cosmo can help.

Wel­come to our Party Is­sue, put to­gether with just one mis­sion in mind—en­sur­ing you have a great time this De­cem­ber. We’ve ID’D your three big­gest party stres­sors— look­ing fab­u­lous, throw­ing a great party, and talk­ing to that hot guy across the room, and tack­led them one by one. So we rounded up some of the in­dus­try’s most suc­cess­ful party hosts and asked them to spill their se­crets (page 198). Then, on page 180, we com­piled a list of ex­tremely po­tent flirt­ing tech­niques that even the most shy amongst us can use (most of them don’t even re­quire you to say a word!). Then there are great ideas for party-night beauty looks, in­clud­ing this sea­son’s Sexy Party Eye (page 94), and glam­orous hair and make-up mod­elled by the lovely Sarah Jane Dias (page 258). And lastly (but re­ally, the most im­por­tant for many of us), the fash­ion team has put to­gether an ex­haus­tive list of party trends, fea­tur­ing some of the sea­son’s most head-turn­ing dresses. Bot­tom line: we re­ally want you to have a good time, and hope these fea­tures push you in that di­rec­tion. In the words of Bar­ney from How I Met Your Mother, [We hope] “it’ll be le­gendary!”

See you next year,
