a note from the editor

Dear Cosmo Girls, Welcome to our last print issue. Though I wish we had more time together, my past year and a half as Cosmo print EIC will always bring happy memories to mind. I hope you enjoy reading the heartwarming messages from our former EICs—women who continue to inspire me and many, many Filipinas to be fun and fearless forever. No regrets, just love! See you around! From the printed page, I learned how to ideate with intent, appreciate the glorious details that make the big picture, be patient with the processes, and cherish creative collaborations.

Flipping covers and leafing through pages, I’ve fawned over features by the most brilliant wordsmiths and have fangirled over…

“Haters gonna hate, especially if you look great.” GROWING UP, WHO WERE YOUR STYLE ICONS? James: Actually, I didn’t get into fashion until about three years ago. Nadine: I didn’t have any, but I read Japanese fashion magazines like ViVi and Popteen. I got inspiration from them. WHEN TRAVELING, DO YOU TRY TO ADAPT TO THE LOCAL STYLE?

Nadine: Yeah, very street Japanese. Anime-inspired too. YOUR STYLE HAS EVOLVED THROUGH THE YEARS. CAN YOU TAKE US THROUGH THE PROCESS OF FINDING YOUR CURRENT PERSONAL STYLE?

funny or die

ANDERS HOLM’S NETFLIX BINGE-WATCH LIST: Mindhunters, Black Mirror, and Arrested Development HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CHARACTER, DARREN? He’s a bossy know-it-all who would rather get high to escape than step up to the plate when it matters. He refuses to take the backseat even when he knows he should. WHAT’S THE CRAZIEST THING YOU DID FOR THE MOVIE? I got dropped from a high wire 30 feet up, while wearing a full-body harness. Didn’t feel great down there! THIS PROJECT REUNITES YOU WITH WORKAHOLICS CAST AND CREW ADAM DEVINE, BLAKE ANDERSON, AND KYLE NEWACHECK. WHAT WAS IT LIKE WORKING WITH THEM? To put it simply, working with the guys is 1) funny and 2) easy. We know exactly what to do to push each other and crack ourselves up. It’s great having Kyle at the helm…
