Danielle Herrington Biography
Birthday: May 26, 1993 (Gemini)
Born In: Compton, California
The phrase ‘Black is the New Sexy’ perfectly suits Danielle Herrington—a supermodel and cover girl of 2018 Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit edition. The third black woman to grace the world’s most-sought after covers, her incredible journey is truly an inspiring one! Herrington was eight when she first decided to become a model. By 10, she started training and in just three years, she started to build a career in it. However, it wasn’t until when she was 21 that Herrington moved to New York. Soon, she got a break in business as she landed herself on the ramp for Philipp Plein’s show. She even modelled for Victoria Secret. However, the big breakthrough came in when she was one of the selected few to model as a member of the rookie class for the Swimsuit Issue for Sports Illustrated. And rest as they say is history. Braving all odds (read: dark skin tone), she has turned to be the face of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit edition for 2018. Coming from a regular household to being the third black woman to grace the cover of an eminent world magazine, Herrington’s journey to stardom has been an exceptional one.
