Tyra Banks believes that the future of beauty will evolve to a point where plastic surgery is as quick and easy as buying Tylenol at the drug store and prejudice based on physical appearance is practically nonexistent.
The 40-year-old "America's Next Top Model" creator penned a column in the Wall Street Journal
this week where she examined how beauty standards and practices will change in the coming years.

"As I look into the future, I see radical changes in both how people 'attain beauty,' and how the world perceives beauty. In general, I believe traditional beauty will be less valuable — and more uniqueness will be heralded," she wrote.
Here are some of Banks' predictions:
Everyone will have at least one personal robot/assistant/companion
. 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."
Women's empowerment will be an irrelevant concept because the balance of power between the sexes will have shifted dramatically
. Women, in control of when they can have children (up to age 120!), and having more degrees and education than men, will be in charge. Men will be responsible for 70 percent of cosmetics sales and plastic-surgery procedures worldwide. Why? Men will be vying for women's attention, obsessed with being attractive to females and snagging well-off ladies who can take care of them.
Skin color and features will mesh into a similar shade for the majority of people
. 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.
