“Cosmopolitan is the world’s most successful magazine for young women aged 18 to 34. It’s often described as “my caffeine”, “my best friend” and “my personal stylist”. When young women read Cosmopolitan they become part of a like-minded conversation on topics ranging from fashion and beauty to relationships and body image. Cosmo makes women feel like they can take on the world.”
