Tyra Banks is no stranger when it comes to being ridiculed by the press and media for her looks, but that has never kept her from saying how she really feels. In 2007, the 40-year-old gained 30-pounds after retiring from her model career. Tyra spoke out about the backlash she was receiving from the media at that time and even joined the “Fat Fight Talk” Campaign, which helps women and men reduce self-damaging words to themselves.
In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, the retired model talked about her perception of beauty and how the general definition of it will change in the future. She says;
“In general, I believe, traditional beauty will be less valuable – and more uniqueness will be heralded. People will be vying for that cutting-edge, distinct look in the way that today celebs reach for baby names that defy convention.”
She specifically states 10 predictions she see’s happening in the future, and one of them is getting plastic surgery will be as easy as walking into a drugstore. But instead of the “cookie-cutter” look people crave now-a-days, everyone will be begging for a more unique and individual look.
Another prediction she has is that:
“Global warming will threaten our crops so natural food will be scarce. Hourglass, curvy bodies will be the aspirational beauty standard, representing that those women have access to bounties of fulfilling yet healthy food, which means they are affluent.”
She also says that since beauty will be so easy to attain, there will be no more prejudice on looks, but rather on your socioeconomic standing, and that if you do not desire plastic surgery, physical attributes (ex. certain shaped eyebrows and contoured cheekbones), will be accessible by “beauty ingestibles” such as active waters.
Even though Tyra made her living through modeling, she believes that robots and aviators will take the place of models in the future to sell products.
“Models will be as relevant as a horse and buggy.”
