Is It Any Good?

From booking talent to attending runway shows, this pretty entertaining series offers a behind-the-scenes look at what it's like to work at Cosmopolitan magazine. It highlights some of the perks of the job, including access to high-end designers, events, and products, but underscores the hard and unglamorous work that goes into putting together a fashion magazine. It also focuses on the personal lives and ambitions of the cast, like finding romance and coping with their co-workers.

It's a much kinder environment than the one featured in The Devil Wears Prada, and Joanna Coles comes across as someone who cares about her staff regardless of her high expectations. But So Cosmo also notes the cut-throat competition in the organization, which reflects the nature of the overall fashion magazine industry. Teen fashionistas will probably like it, especially if they're hoping for a career in the fashion business.
