Jo has been editing and writing for women’s glossy magazines for rather a long time. After working in London and the Middle East, she moved to Singapore in May 2013 after visiting the Red Dot briefly and developing a crush. She loves words, Prosecco, new places, mascara, mashed potatoes, men with beards and dirty rock ‘n’ roll. She has too many shoes, too little sleep, and way too much fun. Importantly, she is never far away from a can of hairspray and a cardigan.
Cosmo’s head style honcho knows a thing or two about fashion, and has been imparting her wisdom through women’s glossies in Singapore for the last decade. A self-confessed COS-addict who lives for style blogs, French Bulldogs and perfectly cut minimalist clothes, Janice is often found hustling at shoots, or discreetly smuggling her pet pooch into Cosmo HQ in a Calvin Klein handbag that does double duty as a stealth dog carrier.
Cheryl, the fashion plate and guinea pig of the team has only ever loved three men in her life. Phillip Lim for making her clothes, Kurt Cobain for making her music and Will Ferrell for creating her movies. She regularly speaks in a code of TV show quotes and Kanye West song lyrics only decipherable by other pop culture nerds. A self-confessed fashion hoarder (in which she blames the nature of her job), Cheryl has two closets with a third one along the way specially created for all the wide leg pants she wears to the office.

Liz has her mum to thank for her love of skincare (think: bi-weekly facials and starting on the Clinique 3-step programme at the tender age of 12). These days, our resident beauty
expert is a firm believer in the 10-step K-beauty regime. Besides constantly badgering the team to slap on sunscreen and use eye cream religiously, she also hoards lipsticks, collects shoes and would never say no to sushi and Korean BBQ.
Senior Features Writer
Our resident girl with the curl, Lucy moved to Singapore from Melbourne in 2011. She’s a nosy thing – always snooping into other people’s business, and then writing about it. Lucy loves cooking, guys with accents and talking too much.
A yoga-loving couch potato, Sophie counts Tina Fey and Jennifer Lawrence as her spirit animals. She also has a strange love for bro-medies (i.e: Blue Mountain State, 21 Jump Street, Harold & Kumar), rap music, beer and dirty jokes. As part of the features team at Cosmo, Sophie regularly pervs on men for work and is always on the lookout for interesting stories to tell.
The only male member at Cosmo is a self-confessed fan of Fann Wong. A typical Gemini, observing people is his pastime; and when he’s quiet, it’s either due to hunger or anger. This auntie-magnet also loves to daydream and loathes couples who openly smooch on buses and trains (Hey, get a room!).
