Sports Illustrated Swimsuit reveals newcomer Danielle Herrington as its 2018 cover star, making her the third black woman to ever land the honor, alongside Tyra Banks and Beyonce

Danielle Herrington covers Sports Illustrated Swimsuit

  • The 24-year-old's cover was revealed on Tuesday morning
  • It is only her second time appearing in the magazine, after she was chosen as a rookie for the 2017 issue 
  • Her cover was revealed less than a week after the magazine unveiled images from a nude spread inspired by the #MeToo movement
  • Danielle was surprised with the news that she had been chosen as this year's cover star by Tyra herself, who appeared on the cover in 1996 and 1997

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit revealed its hotly-anticipated cover on Tuesday morning, unveiling relative newcomer Danielle Harrington as the lucky model to land the honor of posing on the front of the issue.

Danielle, 24, became only the third black woman to ever land the honor of posing on the cover of the annual issue, which launched in 1964.  

However, she joins an impressive pair of women who also boast the accolade: Beyonce appeared on the cover in 2007, while supermodel Tyra Banks was the cover star in both 1996 and 1997.

Herrington first appeared in the magazine's swimsuit issue last year when she was named as one of the publication's Rookies. 

'Last year, Danielle was a rookie, and yet already an exemplary model,' Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editor MJ Day said. 'She's an extra hard worker and a natural brand ambassador. All those things separately don't guarantee a cover, though.

'Danielle was a shy girl, who went from taking her first photos last year to showing up this year a completely different person. All the good things about her seemed to be magnified.' 

The model, a native of Compton, California, posed in Habour Island, Bahamas, in front of photographer Ben Watts for her cover shoot. 

Danielle was already over the moon last year, when she posed in Fiji for her first ever professional photo shoot as a Rookie for the magazine. Now, she is still processing the news of her Swimsuit cover.

'I can't even believe I'm saying this. I am the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model,' she said. '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. I put in so much work for this and I'm feeling very accomplished, happy and excited.'

Oh God. Here we go with the bullshit light skinned black vs dark skin black. Jesus. Regardless of whether she is either, she is still BLACK. Find something else to say. How about Thank God a sister made it to the cover of sports illustrated. You folks kill me, not to mention killing the vibe of the fact that a beautiful black woman is on the cover.
