From the Edi­tor

‘How is Cos­mopoli­tan dif­fer­ent from other mag­a­zines?’

Cosmopolitan (India) - - CONTENTS - Nan­dini Bhalla, Edi­tor @nan­dinib­halla

If I had a di­a­mond for ev­ery time I was asked this ques­tion, I’d be Mr De Beers.

My an­swer—and, un-sur­pris­ingly, that of all the mag­a­zine’s Ed­i­tors be­fore me—has been pretty stan­dard. Sure, Cosmo talks about stuff many other women’s mag­a­zines also cover— your life, your clothes, your re­lata­tion­ships, your ca­reer, your life-threat­en­ing need for the best red lip­stick... But Cosmo’s ap­proach is unique. Ev­ery fea­ture we pub­lish has a clear ques­tion be­hind it—how will this awe­some-ize the Cosmo girl’s life? How will it make her even cooler, smarter, hot­ter than she al­ready is? It’s this ob­ses­sion with your life that prob­a­bly ex­plains why we’re the largest sell­ing mag­a­zine in the world!

This is­sue of Cosmo has a lot of that awe­some-ize stuff. One of my favourite sto­ries this month is How to Have an Amaz­ing Life, page 96, which pretty much out­lines what hap­pi­ness coaches have said for a long time—it’s the small stuff that makes a big dif­fer­ence in your life. I’ve al­ready tried 2 of the 16 points (say­ing yes to more things, and do­ing some­thing nice for some­one else), and I can cross my heart and prom­ise you it to­tally works.

An­other fea­ture that prom­ises a life up­grade, es­pe­cially in your closet, is These are the 50 Best Fash­ion Week Out­fits, page 154. We know you must be on-trend, so we en­listed the help of some of In­dia’s most stylish people, and had them iden­tify the most stand­out pieces of Sum­mer 2014. Each of our fash­ion pan­elists has a dis­tinct per­son­al­ity and style, so you’re likely to find at least a few pieces to fall in love with.

Fi­nally, there’s some ma­jor beauty in­spi­ra­tion in this is­sue. 66 New Things to Do with Your Hair, page 176, is the ul­ti­mate mane man­ual with over two months of fab­u­lous ideas (you’ll never have a bad hair day again!)

Have a month filled with awe­some­ness,
