Another magazine anniversary. This time the British edition of Cosmopolitan hits 35. Relive it's past as a ground-breaking milestone in women's magazines in the Observer. 'I remember when it came out. There were just Woman's Realm and Jackie. Cosmopolitan was innovative and cutting edge - suddenly someone was saying it was OK to have sex and be a free spirit,' says a former reader.
