WHY YOU NEED MORE STRONG, SUCCESSFUL WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE Have you heard that saying about how we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with? That if you hang out with creative types, you’ll likely soak in some of that leftbrained thinking. And if your posse is mostly an unhealthy type, it might be harder for you to meet your fitness goals. Yep, whether we like it or not, we become what interactions we feed our life. While you contemplate that, and the lot in your life right now, I’d like you to consider surrounding yourself with fabulous, strong women. Women you admire. Women of courage and candour and brilliance and fearlessness. Who lift you up and push for you to be the best version of…

A BREATH OF FRESH AIR “Ananya Panday may just be one film old, but her confidence is admirable. Also, amidst all that’s being said about nepotism, it’s good to see she is willing to accept that she comes from a place of privilege, and raring to prove her mettle. It was an honest, heartfelt story, and made for a great read, especially when she talks about her fears, crushes, friends etc, just like a regular girl her age!” —Kaavya Goel CHANGING PERCEPTIONS “The denim-special stories were my favourite! I loved Denim Goes Rogue, The Denim Diaries, and The Denim Edit. It is so cool that the fabric can be styled in so many ways, is so versatile, and yet so unique for every individual! But No Serious Business topped the list! It has changed…

your body. your rules.

Roshini Kumar @rosh93 “In 2015, I did a nude self-portrait because I was bullied for the way I looked when I was younger. When I fell ill for a year, I realised that listening to society and its opinions was not the way to be happy. That’s when I decided to highlight my flaws because everyone suffers from insecurities and people need to know that they’re not alone. The human body is an art in itself, and we should be embracing it in every sphere of our lives—art, fashion, or social media. It’s not a bad thing to be nude. There’s a negative connotation attached to nudity and we need to break that. I do a lot of nude and semi-nude portraits with people who are comfortable in their skin because nudity…

Cosmo: Tell us about your collaboration with Samsung QLED 8K TV… Twinkle Khanna: “I have a Samsung QLED 4K at home, which Samsung hasn’t given me BTW… they didn’t even give me a discount [laughs]. Everybody was pleased with the experience so I was rather thrilled when I was offered the chance to collaborate for the launch of the upgraded version. I’m a proper customer. I put my money where my mouth is.” C: What’s your idea of a perfect movie night? TK: “I believe in letting the night flow naturally. If I’m watching a movie with my kids, there’ll be lots of popcorn. But if I’m watching with my partner, I’ll drink wine and just relax with him. Personally, I enjoy a lot of blood and gore, and I can’t wait to…

redheads are having such a moment right now

It was a cold January night in 2017 when people first witnessed the hair/body/face of Archie Andrews, played by KJ Apa, on Riverdale. In the pilot, one character sees Archie through a window and says, “Archie got hot,” before saying his abs are “six more reasons to take the ginger bull by the horns.” In that moment, it was like the entire world had a ginger sexual awakening, because Archie was sexy—and his (okay, fake) red hair was a major reason why. Since that fateful day, more and more redheads are stepping out of their kooky sidekick corners to centre-stage. And the world is a little more because of it. Now, some of the most watched Netflix fare has redheads in the lead. Zoey Deutch’s Harper rocks red hair in Set It…
