The 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue was released on Feb. 13 featuring a cover model who's making history. Danielle Herrington is only the third African-American woman to grace the cover of the famed special issue since the franchise launched in 1964. Tyra Banks has appeared on the cover twice -- in 1996 and 1997 -- and Beyonce graced the cover in 2007. "Two of my role models are Tyra Banks and Beyonce, so the fact that I get to join this incredible group of women as I become the third black model on the cover of SI Swimsuit is a dream come true. I am so excited to be part of this iconic brand that has long given identity and voice to women of all shapes, colors and beliefs," Danielle said upon learning the news. "I hope that young girls who look at this cover are inspired to dream as big as I did and work hard to attain all their goals." So who is she? Danielle, 24, hails from Compton, California, though now lives in Brooklyn's Bushwick neighborhood. She's been modeling since she was 13 and made her debut in the SI Swimsuit Issue in 2017 as one of its Rookies. She shot the sexy cover (see it on E! News) -- in which she wears a hot pink Ola Vida thong bikini -- on Harbour Island in the Bahamas. "Everybody knows me as a 'swim' girl, but I'm trying to get more into high fashion," she told CR Fashion Book in 2017. "I'm not like a 'curve' model, but I have curves, right? It seems the industry is finally making room for more kinds of beauty now."
