Tyra Banks Thinks Beauty Will Be Perceived Differently In The Future

Screen shot 2014-07-15 at 6.51.02 AM

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.”

The Hills star Lauren Conrad was and is still known for her fabulous figure and her beautiful looks she showed off dozens of times on Laguna Beach and The Hills. But just because she has money, fame, and an amazing body, does not mean she feels comfortable in her skin. In fact, Ms. Conrad revealed to Glamour Magazine that she has not worn a bikini in two whole years!

Lauren admitted,

“On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I’m just petrified.”

Why you might ask is someone like Lauren Conrad terrified to be seen in a bikini? well the answer to that is pretty simple, for a celebrity living in LA: the paparazzi.

Lauren revealed what exactly made her self-conscious,

“A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that.”

And when asked about body image issues in general, Lauren replied,

“I haven’t met a woman without insecurities. You just have to learn to play up the positives.”

Kristin Chenoweth’s 88lb Weight Controversey

20130520-084131.jpg

Earlier this year, Kristin Chenoweth shocked people when she tweeted that she is eighty-eight pounds and has a muffin top. If you have ever seen Kristin Chenoweth, you know she is one of the smallest celebrities out there. This is not the first time Kristin has caused controversy over her weight. In 2011, she told People Magazine,

“Shopping for a bikini for me is like it would be for a lot of women in America: hell on Earth. I’m a 32C on top. I have curves! I’m not a stick, so the wrong suit can make me look squatty. I have to watch that.”

Her statement caused a lot of debate, causing people to think she has an eating disorder. But in reality, she is just like every other woman. She admitted to US Weekly,

I get given a lot of grief because I’m petite and I go, ‘Oh my gosh. I have a belly.’ And people go, ‘Are you high? Are you crazy? Do you have a problem?’ I don’t have a problem. I’m a woman. I’m a woman. If I wear too tight jeans, I have a muffin top. If I eat dessert, I feel it. It doesn’t matter your size. It’s just how it is.”

This just shows everybody that no matter what size someone is, they are going to have moments that make them uncomfortable. Kristin Chenoweth suffers just like the rest of us when it comes to body image, but realistically she looks fabulous!
