Who is Danielle Herrington?

Expect to see her everywhere pretty soon.

Danielle appears on the cover of the 2018 edition of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, making her just the third black woman to ever appear on the magazine’s swimsuit themed cover – following in the footsteps of Beyoncé, who appeared on the cover in 2007, and Tyra Banks, who got the top spot in 1997.

If you didn’t know, appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue is a big deal for a model. It’s massively boosted the careers of models including Kate Upton and Chrissy Teigen.

For Danielle Herrington, it’s extra special, as one of the few black women to make the cover in the swimsuit edition’s 54 year history.

Danielle made her Sports Illustrated debut last year as one of the magazine’s rookies. A few months later she was on the cover.

Before that the model appeared in campaigns for Victoria’s Secret and Guess.

Other things it’s worth knowing about Danielle? She’s 24, she’s 5″10, and she’s from California.

‘I can’t even believe I’m saying this,’ said Danielle. ‘I am the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model.

‘I can’t wait for everyone to see it. I’m emotional, but I just want to say thank you to everyone who believed in me.
