Danielle Herrington Is 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Cover Girl

Danielle Herrington Is 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Cover Girl

You're probably wondering to yourself, who is that?

Nonetheless, 21-year-old Danielle Herrington who became this year's cover model, just the third black woman to do so since Beyonce in 2007 and Tyra Banks in 1996, was over the moon. A year after she starred in that Swimsuits For All, she earned her own spread and cover, and she is now a regular in the iconic issue.

HollywoodLifers, which model do you think had the sexiest cover?

In celebrating "women's diverse bodies", Sports Illustrated presents photos of swimsuit issue models present and past, including the lithe 19-year-old Sailor Brinkley Cook (Christie Brinkley's daughter), 28-year-old Robyn Lawley, and 52-year-old Paulina Porizkova.

As you can see in the following image, he replied: "You know it's a bit unusual for your dad to see his daughter half clad in a magazine".


The debate raged on to a point where golfer and Instagram powerhouse Paige Spiranac had to defend her shoot with the publication against those who believe that Sport's Illustrated's latest move is hypocritical. Banks was at a fake photoshoot that Herrington "accidentally" crashed. Tyra banks was the first black woman on SI's coveted cover, which launched her career as a successful supermodel. Bouchard tweeted Tuesday, when news broke of her inclusion in SI's annual celebration of swimsuits and skin. She had her loved ones close then, too.

Herrington is certainly new to the professional game as her first catwalk occurred during Philipp Plein's Spring 2017 show in September.

In addition to her modeling accomplishments, Culpo has also tried her hand at acting, having been in multiple music videos, a brief appearance in the 2014 film The Other Woman, and the recent indie-film American Satan. Herrington is also part of Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book and CR Girls 2018 Calendar. But the outfits she's worn for the magazine's photo shoot makes it this year's most raunchy shoot yet.

Herrington lives in NY now, but she's originally from Compton, California. He just watched her go.

Looks like Herrington is going to be everywhere now.
