one quick thing

Hey! Before you jump into our new You section (six pages that way) full of fun breakdowns of your weirdest habits and answers to urgent Qs like whether you should get bangs, let me tell you a little about me: As the new editor-in-chief of Cosmo, I’m the insanely lucky person who gets to be in charge of making the thing you’re holding in your hands, plus the digital, video, and social content that’s distracting you while you read it. (I see you!) (It’s okay, I do it too.) I never could have imagined I’d land here—I grew up doing ballet in the South and leapfrogged my way from NYU film school to internships at magazines. Over the past 10 years, I’ve written and edited stories for all my favorite…

the cosmo quiz

YOU’LL NEVER CATCH ME WITHOUT A red lip. (One time, deputy editor Rosa Heyman—see next page for a breakdown of the whole Cosmo team—saw me without it and asked if I was okay.) My new fave: L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Colored Ink in “I Don’t.” MY SECRET WEAPON A bizarre ability to function on very little sleep. Also, my brilliant assistant, Sam! She is a lifesaver. WHAT’S ALWAYS IN MY BAG There are approximately 45 pens at the bottom of my purse at any given time. THE MOST SURPRISING THING ABOUT ME I cut my own hair! Have done it for years. Hey: Virgo.

secrets from the cosmo vault

Founding editor Helen Gurley Brown was so intimidated by the job that she hid under her desk on her first day. (I get it!!) The Harvard Lampoon made a fake Cosmo with cover lines like “Girls Obviously From Ohio” and “How to Tell if Your Man Is Dead.” Cosmo’s famous Burt Reynolds centerfold was such a hit that it led to the creation of Playgirl magazine. In 1976, supermodel Jerry Hall was featured on the cover in a floral Hula-Hoop—with a very visible nip slip! Former EIC Joanna Coles used to have an office gong that she would ring whenever there was something to celebrate. Our legendary copy chief, Ann Wright, has worked here since 1985 (the year before I was born!).…

what your go-to selfie face says about you

PEACE SIGN This one’s a classic. And while you might think throwing deuces simply means “peace out, y’all,” Hill says it’s also a sign of victory. Translation: You feel like you’re slaying life. SCREEN STARE-DOWN If you’ve been posting selfies sans eye contact with the cam, you need a girls’ night stat. Intentionally disconnecting from the viewer signals that you might be bummed about something, says Hill. “You probably feel like you need a hug.” BIG CHEESE With teeth as far as the eye can see, you’re a star, babe. A huge smile that reaches your eyes indicates that you’re full of energy, says Hill. Chances are, you’re the party-starter of your group, notorious for spreading good vibes. SMILE SANS TEETH You holding back, girl? Keeping this hint of a smile behind closed lips indicates that you’re…

1. Let’s get the obvious question out of the way: Has your relationship status recently changed? A Nope! No breakup chop for this girl! B Does getting ghosted by a Bumble date count? C *Sobs* Yes, but…what does this have to do with my hair?! 2. Why are you drawn to bangs? A I have the perfect face shape for a fringe. B Three words: Instagram Explore wormhole.

B It can’t be that hard, right? C That reminds me—I should prob water my succulent. 4. When something is bothering you, how do you deal? A Handle it ASAP. I’d rather have…
