Danielle Herrington has landed the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. The 24-year-old model, who is from Compton, California, is the third black woman to cover SI Swim since the franchise began in 1964.

Prior to Herrington, Tyra Banks was the first to cover the magazine alongside Valeria Mazza in 1996, followed by a solo cover in 1997. Beyoncé landed the cover in 2007.

Herrington said of landing the cover,

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. 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.

Congrats to her!
