Only three other women of color have graced the cover of the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. For 2018, Compton, California's Danielle Herrington has garnered the position of CoverGirl. Tyra Banks did the honor in 1996 and 1997 as well as Beyonce in 2007. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue editor MJ Day says these issues offer a platform for women showing them as multidimensional; much more than how they look in swimsuits. “I can’t even believe I’m saying this. I am the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model,” Herrington told Sports Illustrated. “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.”
