Formerly titled The Cosmopolitan and often referred to as Cosmo, throughout the years, Cosmopolitan has adapted its style and content. Its current incarnation was originally marketed as a woman's fashion magazine with articles on home, family, and cooking. For some time it focused more on new fiction and written work, which included short stories, novels, and articles.[6] Now it is more targeted towards women's fashion, sports and modern interests.[6] Eventually, editor-in-chief Helen Gurley Brown changed its attention to more of a women empowerment magazine.[6] Nowadays, its content includes articles discussing relationships, sex, health, careers, self-improvement, celebrities, fashion, horoscopes, and beauty.
