Hey! Hi. Hello! We’re the Cosmo team. Aka the people who work to deliver you juicy content on your screens, in our magazine, and across your feeds that’s just like you: unapologetically honest, fearlessly authentic, and really damn fun.

We know what we’re doing because we’ve been around a *looong* time. Cosmopolitan debuted in 1886 as a “family journal” and then became known as a literary magazine for the first half of the 20th century—that is, until legendary editor Helen Gurley Brown took the helm and transformed the brand into what you know and love today: a destination for real talk about all the things that matter to you, from pop culture and sex to politics and your career.

As the biggest young women’s media brand in the world, we’re in an intimate relationship—and ongoing conversation—with you, dear reader, and our 60+ editorial staffers (more on us below) hustle hard to pack every Cosmopolitan platform with fresh, funny, and fundamental intel on all the many things you truly want to know (from how to dirty-talk like a pro to crypto and QAnon).

Keep scrolling to get to know us, and feel free to reach out. We know you have opinions—and the confidence to share ’em. Love you, mean it.

Meet Team Cosmo below.


The Cosmo news team stays busy. We know you’re hungry for the latest update on Lady Gaga’s love life and we want to keep you in the know. Kate and Meghan’s “feud”? Let’s wade through the rumors together. Trump just awkwardly tried to hold Melania’s hand? You bet we’re cringing—and finding an expert body-language analysis of the whole damn thing. We speak pop culture and have very strong opinions on which Kardashian-Jenner bb is the cutest.


On the features team, we spend months conceiving, reporting, and editing the longer, in-depth stories and investigations you can’t look away from (like, ahem, the ones about the government’s assaults on your reproductive rights). We are obsessed with mental health, weird subcultures, women in politics, birth control, college, and internet witches.

sex and relationships

Consider us your ride-or-dies when it comes to love, lust, and everything in between—because, yep, that’s all we ever talk about. We’ll tell you exactly what to say to that dating app match, help you figure out if the fight you had with bae the other night was a red flag, and give you the most honest sex advice and hot-AF bedroom tips—backed by the latest facts and most trusted pros in the game. “Team Lusties” has got you.


We’re thirsty. Thirsty for internet boyfriends, for deep dives into Netflix rom-coms, for new photos of Jacob Elordi with his shirt off. (Don’t @ us.) Join us as we obsessively track the status of Timothée Chalamet’s hair or if you need to know WTF is going on in the latest true-crime series. We are a judgment-free zone where no reality show is too trashy and being attracted to serial killers played by Zac Efron and Penn Badgley is perfectly normal.


The Cosmo beauty team has more than 40 years of combined experience testing beauty products, analyzing ingredients, and working with the industry’s top dermatologists, cosmetic chemists, plastic surgeons, makeup artists, hairstylists, and nail artists. We can tell you the difference between high vs. low hair porosity, chemical vs. physical sunscreens, and antioxidants vs. peptides. We vet every single product we recommend, while keeping in mind the wide world of skin tones, hair textures, and skin types, and we work with leading experts for their own inspo suggestions and trend insights. Whether you’re looking for cystic acne treatments, curly hair help, or WTF blue beauty actually is, we’ve gotchu covered. Welcome to your beauty safe space.

fashion and lifestyle

The Cosmo fashion team is all about ID’ing the super-sweet sales, testing out the cool new trends (are asymmetrical jeans actually wearable?), and finding pants you can lounge in while still looking good (and like you tried—just a little). And yes, we *will* report on the crazy thing Miley Cyrus wore last night because, we’re sorry, it’s probably too wild NOT to talk about.


Consider Cosmo astro your cosmic life coach when it comes to acing ev-er-y-thing the universe throws your way. We’re here to help you survive Mercury Retrograde, casually ask your crush for their birth time so you can go deep on your compatibility (like, what’s their Venus sign?), decode every last detail of your natal chart, and find your next favorite tarot deck. Astrology is about much more than your weekly horoscope (although we have three of those too!) and we’re here to help you explore it all.


Need a good rec? The Cosmo shopping team has got you. Consider us your trusted advisers on all things shopping. By personally testing out products, interviewing experts for valuable insight, and reading up on all the reviews, you bet we’re carefully vetting Every. Single. Product. we recommend. Because how else could we show you what the hottest deals on Amazon are, where you can find the softest sheets in the land, what the best bra for your body might be, or whether or not that viral TikTok product is worth it?! All this research is worth it because we truly care a whole lot about where your hard-earned cash is going….

emerging platforms

The emerging platforms team brings the news you care about (and Very Important astrological things) to Snapchat Discover. We churn out informative and educational videos on TikTok too. (Are you following us?) We’re always looking to make fresh, innovative projects sparkle, so don’t come around us if you don’t have sunglasses. Our sun sign is Britney Spears and our rising sign is Lady Gaga.


We’re the production nerds! We get to hang out with celebrities and ask them all kinds of nosy questions to serve the greater purpose of bringing you the tea. Want to watch your faves try and guess which bougie stuff is more expensive? Or laugh at celebs who have one minute to learn a Tiktok challenge? We’re your peeps. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to see what we’re up to and leave us a comment about who you’re dying to see in our studio! We read them, we swear.
