Ask Cosmo Anything
From random little issues to major life dramas, we’ve got your back.
Q. The new guy I’m dating is just out of a relationship, and he insists on taking tonnes of photos of us and posting them asap. Is he using me to put up jealousy pics?
A. Since you’re obviously sexy, it makes sense that he’d want to show you off a bit. But insta-posting a deluge of hot pics is extreme.. and means he may still be reeling from his split, experts say. Odds are, he’s hung up on his ex and overcompensating by showing the world (and her) that this newly single guy’s got game. Be cautious.
Q. Heidi Klum and Seal’s marriage seemed to unravel so quickly. Can a relationship really crumble that fast?
A. Our love gurus say that most seemingly abrupt break-ups are actually the result of deeper conflicts that have built up over time. So even though we didn’t see signs of Heidi and Seal’s gradual downfall, it’s pretty likely they had private spats long before the split.
Q. Lots of celebs are wearing cute, funky hats. How can I prevent a hat head?
A. To be sure your locks don’t end up flat post-hat, use this trick from top NYC hairstylist Denine Smith: before you put on your hat, part your hair on the opposite side than you usually do. Then when you take it off, flip your part back to your regular side. This move will give your hair tonnes of volume.
Q. My best friend loves gossiping about our friends, but I feel weird talking about them all the time. Advice?
A. Say, “Look, I feel really bad trashtalking the other girls like this. I’d hate it if I knew they talked about me. Can we switch subjects?” Since you said it makes you feel bad, she won’t feel like you’re accusing her... and she’ll probably keep mum about it.
Q. I love that candy-coloured jeans are so in right now. What’s the best kind of top to wear with them?
A. Cosmo fashion director Michelle Mccool says you have two options. If you’re wearing pastel pants, like lavender, choose a pastel top in a different colour, like mint green. But if you’re rocking eye-popping brights on the bottom, go with a simple white shirt.
