editor’s letter

SOCIAL MEDIA IS GREAT… UNTIL IT MAKES YOU FEEL TERRIBLE ABOUT YOURSELF. What did your last social media scroll throw up? A hot-bodied model with a 25-inch waist? A school friend and her fiancé beaming at you with ‘love of my life, #Blessed’ written below? Someone’s amazing holiday in Greece, someone’s new Jimmy Choo shoes, someone’s squad of #FriendsLikeFamily who look astonishingly cheerful? And how did that little saunter make you feel? Inadequate? Insecure? Like your own life is swimming in a pool of mediocrity? That’s Instagram’s job, to be honest. To promote the perfect life. To advertise a carefully curated lifestyle that induces envy and existential alarm. To encourage a little embellishment here and a spot of skewed perception there. With some image manipulation thrown in for good measure. But here’s what that…

4 things i’m loving this month

This pair of hand-embroidered Jazmin Earrings by Deepa Gurnani, `11,800, has two things I look for in a piece of statement jewellery: it’s lightweight and striking. These electric pumps are more than footwear… they’re pieces of art that you will treasure forever! Fendi, price on request. Nothing spells nostalgia (think pencil shavings) like these Fool’s Gold Dragon Stud Earrings by Isharya, `8,543. Pull your hair back to let ’em stand out. I heart all things dainty. And this Dream Bracelet by Eina Ahluwalia, `3,850, crafted in sterling silver and set with a garnet, is just the kind of chic accessory I’m in love with RN.…

BRIDGE THE GAP “My boyfriend and I are in a long-distance relationship and sometimes, it’s hard to keep up. However, after going through Radhika Apte’s interview, I’m feeling hopeful. Not only did I enjoy reading about her relationship with her husband, but I also found her advice to be profound and practical. I’m going to follow them to the T and hope everything works out. Fingers crossed.” —Megha Sahni BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL “As an Indian woman, I’ve been conditioned to suppress my sexuality. But the courageous women in Sorry Not Sorry have inspired me to take charge of my individuality and own it. Also, how empowering was Don’t Judge A Victim By Her Clothing? Thanks Cosmo, for the thought-provoking essay.” —Asmita Arora IT’S A DATE! “I’ve been wanting to switch up my make-up routine, and thanks to…

digital confessions

“Before we broke up, my ex used my e-mail as his backup in case his account was hacked or stopped working. After we split, he didn’t change it. So I’d get notifications of his location every time he signed in to his e-mail. Let’s just say it took me a while to tell him he should change his settings.” —MEGHA G. HEY CREEPSTER, FLIP A FEW PAGES AHEAD FOR A MUST-KNOW INSTASTALKING HACK. 57% of you say the lurking will never end. “I was out at a bar one night, going through my Snap feed, when I saw this guy, who had ghosted me, in the background of my friend’s Story. She was having a party, so I decided to stop by and casually run into him there. When I walked in, I spotted…

hey, how do i wear… fluoro green?

By: MADDY ALFORD WHY DOES IT WORK? With A-listers like Kylie Jenner and megabrands such as Balenciaga touting the return of ’90s neon, it’s official—fluoro green is back. Think you’ll look like you should be in a field with some glowsticks? Worry not. A touch of this hue, paired with tailored neutrals, is all you need to look convincingly 2019. Pssst: want more low-down on all the other cool, neon stuff for this season? Flip ahead! STRUCTURE REIGNS When you’re dressing like a bottle of Sprite, 50% of your outfit should have structured shape, so that you look polished, not sloppy. Good bets are stiff denim, slightly loose PVC, prim coats, or dresses with architectural detail. If your neon piece is tight, the rest of your clothes should be less fitted—well, unless the aim is…

cute boys (and their toys)

JIM SARBH Actor TOY OF THE MOMENT: JBL GO TINY BABY SPEAKERS (`2,490 approx) “They’re small and perfectly portable, have a groovy FullSound (that plays music without distortion), and long-lasting battery. They get me through most of my shoots. And if I’m moving about, I especially end up using them a lot. Kalki (Koechlin) had one… that’s where I first saw and heard them, and decided to get one for myself as well. I had a teal one earlier, which I recently switched for a black, and I’m planning switch to another colour again.” PRO TIP “Uh, don’t forget to enable the Bluetooth.” HARSHVARDHAN RANE Actor TOY OF THE MOMENT: GOPRO HERO 7 (`37,000 approx) “This one is a huge leap among all the GoPro models, and honestly, I don’t think they’ll be able to up this for a…
