Because it’s April 1st, I want to say from the start that there are absolutely no April Fool’s jokes in here, though I did get tricked by Tinder’s announcement that they were banning photos of men holding fish, which I assumed was a silly gimmick to get press (and, technically, it was!) but did not think was an April Fool’s joke. Who releases April Fool’s jokes on March 29? Isn’t there a law against that or something?

Her list includes a lot of the products you’d expect a discerning Gen Zer to mention — Bala bangles (“So I only really started enjoying working out recently”), GRWM hair clips, tie-dye thermals only available on Grailed — but it also, appropriately, includes an iPhone. “I’m gonna keep it brief,” she begins. “It’s a tool for creatives and an aesthetic-design masterpiece.” A tool for creatives, indeed! Here’s a selfie of Eve with her very own “aesthetic-design masterpiece”:

Great Shoulder Resurgence of 2023
And everything else that happened this week in brands, trends, and online culture.
