Erika Ber­lin ex­plains what hap­pens when two mega suc­cess­ful women make an at­tempt at friend­ship.

Cosmopolitan (India) - - CONTENTS -

In­clud­ing a de­bate on whether two mega suc­cess­ful women can be BFFs; why we’re loving mus­tard (it’s the colour of the mo­ment!); the shirt tuck­ing trends you’ve got to try; a male model who’s ac­tu­ally fe­male(!); how Pin­ter­est is in­spir­ing our denim style, and much more.

This year’s Golden Globes gen­er­ated a huge buzz with funny women Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as co-hosts. Not only are they in­di­vid­u­ally hi­lar­i­ous and have proven chem­istry, as shown on Satur­day Night Live, they’re also real-life best friends. To­gether, Tina and Amy tran­scend well-writ­ten ma­te­rial and comic tim­ing. And that’s where the magic hap­pens—their quick quips are like in­side jokes they’re let­ting the rest of us in on.

But per­haps the great­est take­away from their pair­ing is a re­minder that pow­er­ful women can be friends, share the spot­light, and not be viewed as com­peti­tors. The ex­is­tence of mega-watt BFFs spits in the face of the be­lit­tling idea that women must be pit­ted against one an­other. No-one asks you to pick be­tween Rihanna and Katy Perry be­cause they fre­quently dis­cuss their BFF sta­tus and ap­plaud each other through­out award shows. Ditto Jennifer Anis­ton and Chelsea Han­dler, and Gwyneth Pal­trow and Bey­oncé. Women who sup­port each other pub­licly as well as pri­vately al­ways seem to come out ahead, be­cause deep down, we all love to see a gen­uine bond more than a man­u­fac­tured catfight.
