Originally I was going to make Sports Illustrated‘s baddest Black chic this year, Damaris Lewis the subject of this month’s Crush Alot post, along with the newly reintroduced Raven Symone 2.0. But seeing as to how they belong to the Too Youngs category, I came to my senses. It especially felt creepy thinking that I have a niece Damaris’ age (1990 birthdate, wow). But then I remembered that the homie Sox asked me to give the beautiful young ladies who played Denzel Washington‘s daughters in last year’s Unstoppable a look and to post something on them. I took a minute. Sorry I waited this long…
The women in question are the perfectly balanced Meagan Tandy and Ms. Elizabeth Mathis. All American girls, with All American names. You’ve seen them, but I bet you don’t really know them….Yet!
I gotta give Sox his props for having the keen eye, cause these ladies defiinitely fell below my radar for the many appearances and small moments in the limelight that have garnered. Now it seems that they’re well on their way to becoming the next Black upstarts making a name for themselves and securing spots in big budget blockbusters and features, From Elizabeth’s spot inTron Legacy, to Meagan’s spot in the horrible – yet-popular Piranha franchise. Not bad for 2 models turned actresses.
The Detroit native, Mathis has graced plenty of pages as a sultry model, flaunting her frame and captivating bone structure, while Ms. Tandy, a Cali native was Miss California USA in ’07, quite fittingly. Both, with their caramel and Dope brown shades, have added a much needed splash of color in the arenas they’ve gracefully and almost effortlessly traversed through.
Yeah, it kinda sucks that Elizabeth is married, but since the chapters for both women have yet to be written, I intended this post to be much more of a picture post than a write-up. I’m sure ya’ll don’t mind right?
Meagan Tandy and Elizabeth Mathis,
Are My New Crush!!
