Danielle Herrington (far right) is the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model.

The 24-year-old is the third black woman to appear on the cover, following in the footsteps of supermodel Tyra Banks in 1996 and 1997 and Beyonce in 2007.

“Two of my role models are Tyra Banks and Beyoncé, 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,” Herrington told People. “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. 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.”

While presently living in Brooklyn, the California native first appeared in the iconic swimsuit issue last year. Kate Upton was the 2017 cover model.

And it was just last September that Herrington made her fashion week debut walking the runway for Philipp Plein Spring 2017 show.

You better werk, Miss Herrington!
