Actually, I can imagine that there will be as much if not more focus on
looks. But now your physical appearance will be even more a representation
of your aesthetics and personality, much the way clothes, make-up, and
accessories (should I add cosmetic surgery in here?) are seen now. Also,
let's not forget that form does often have an effect on function. If you
want to be as strong or fast or limber as possible, this will shape your
physical appearance some. Still likely to be a pretty amazing world.
