Tyra Banks Thinks Beauty Will Be Perceived Differently In The Future

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.”

Joan Rivers: 80 and Fabulous


It is no secret that Joan Rivers has had a numerous amount of plastic surgeries. This past weekend she turned eighty years old and throughout those eighty years she has had more than forty plastic surgery procedures! But in all honesty, the surgeries do really help because she could pass for fifty. Joan jokingly told the Huffington Post back in 2012,

“Every weekend I just go in and I do something new. I get a 10th one free. It’s a little like coffee you just keep going.”

You have to give Joan credit though for being so open and honest about her surgeries considering most celebrities try to hide it. With her truthfulness she stated,

“I believe anything that can help you do it. If Botox can make you look better, do it. If you think you don’t have a nice nose, fix it. Feel good about yourself. Any of these idiots that lie to you and say they have done nothing—out here they’ve all done something. Dieting is so difficult. Everything is tough. But this is a society – every society wants people to look good. Babies respond to a prettier face.”

Even though her plastic surgery doctor is her go to, she still takes the time to get a little exercise in. She revealed to E! Online,

“I walk everywhere. I do every little thing I can to keep myself in motion. I have a trainer three times a week. I have made her go crazy. ‘Frances, how are you and the boyfriend. Let’s talk about it. Put down the weight and tell me.’ I try—we are meant to walk and move. In L.A. it makes me laugh that people get in their car, drive somewhere to walk. Whereas in NYC, they walk a lot more.”

So long story short, if eighty-year old Joan Rivers can work out weekly than so can you!
