Our girl Tyra Banks put her writing skills to work as she penned an interesting article for The Wall Street Journal focused on how people will view beauty and how people will attain beauty in the future.
Banks makes 10 predictions that cover hair extensions, personal assistants and plastic surgery. On the latter topic, she says, plastic surgery will become extremely convenient. “Plastic surgery will be as easy and quick as going to the drugstore for Tylenol. Emphasis will be on how unique and interesting one can look, as opposed to a cookie-cutter look. People will be vying for that cutting-edge, distinct look in the way that today celebs reach for baby names that defy convention,” she writes.
She also explains that mostly everyone will have the same features and skin color. “Typical features and coloring will lean toward a Rihanna or Beyoncé or me kind of look. People with alabaster or ebony skin will be rare and heralded for that uniqueness.” She continues “… prejudices based on physical features will be nearly eradicated. Prejudice will be socioeconomically based.”
What was the most intriguing bit of information? There are going to be ROBOTS! “If a person allows that robot/assistant to suggest products paid for by sponsors, that person’s robot will be free of charge. In fact, that person will actually be paid to use the robot by a pool of advertisers. The robot will have super artificial intelligence and will be able to sense if its owner is having a low-self-esteem day and will then strategically give boosts of confidence to its owner. ‘Wow, Eloisa! Your eyes look especially lovely today.'”
We’re not sure if all of this is going to happen, but as long as Tyra Banks is in the future, we know it looks bright. Head over to The Wall Street Journal to read all of Tyra’s predictions.
