It may be nit-picking, :) but shape-shifting wasn't what I had in mind.
With a little more advanced technology, life extension could become
common. So with rejuvenation techniques, old experienced people could
look like 20 year old starlets. Add in cosmetic surgery and possibly
designer genes for humans and you get a redesigned ever-youthful human

I agree that these techniques could be be used to create humans in
giant spider bodies, but who would vote for a giant spider for
President?  :)
