Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2018 Cover Model is Danielle Herrington

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2018 Edition is released.

Sports Illustrated released the Swimsuit 2018 Edition online and revealed the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model. Former supermodel Tyra Banks surprised Danielle Herrington with the news.

The Danielle Herrington's cover was shot by photographer Ben Watts in Harbour Island, Bahamas, where she stunned on the pink sand beaches of the Caribbean island.

Danielle started her career just last year. The Compton, Calif. native convinced in her first professional shoot ever in Fiji last year. "I remember being told I was going to live in New York," Danielle said last year after seeing her first photos in the magazine. "Six months later, I'm a Swimsuit model."

To have a rookie of last year to be on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2018 magazine is risky. Herrington is not that known. She does not have a Wikipedia entry and only 54,000 followers on Instagram.

"Last year, Danielle was a rookie, and yet already an exemplary model," said SI Swimsuit Editor MJ Day. "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. She owned every single second of her shoot. She had an enthusiasm and effervescence about her — I felt like I was meeting her for the first time. Last year she showed up never expecting to be there; this year she showed up completely claiming her place and status as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model," explains MJ Day.

Danielle becomes just the third African-American to appear on the cover, joining Tyra Banks (1997) and Beyonce (2005). Other famous cover models such as Kate Upton, Heidi Klum, Kathy Ireland and Christie Brinkley have gone on to have illustrious careers in movies, TV, business and beyond.

The Swimsuit 2018 edition is packed with swimsuit model photos and videos. As always, Kate Upton's shoot for the Swimsuit 2018 edition stands out. See all photos on the si.com/swimsuit site.
