R.I.P Helen Gurley Brown, The Original "Cosmo" Girl
A study about infidelity! Twiggy! I totally would have bought this magazine had I been alive then.
“How normal are you sexually?“Aren’t you just dying to read that?!
The “Fun Fearless Female” franchise is still used today at the magazine.
As is the “Bedside Astrologer.”
Almost 30 years later and we’re still discussing breast implants and the sex lives of wives…
…as well as why we go after the wrong dudes.
“What Vitamins and Minerals to Take and How Many to Feel Great”—the woman knew how to pen a headline! According to Ephron’s profile, Brown wanted things to be “baby simple” and she made sure the writing reflected that.
Brown ended her tenure at the magazine in 1997, but articles about the relationship mistakes women make still persist.
