Sports Illustrated made waves Tuesday when it announced Danielle Herrington as this year's Swimsuit Issue cover model.
Not only was she surprised by the announcement, but Sports Illustrated had also brought in former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue model Tyra Banks to tell her. I was so shocked to discover I'd be on the cover.
After winning her first WTA title in 2014 and spending time among the game's elite, Bouchard has struggled on the court.
According to USA Today, this was all a part of the magazine's "In Her Own Words" project, where they encouraged women to define themselves with positive words. Banks was at a fake photoshoot that Herrington "accidentally" crashed. Day says watching from the sidelines as famous photographers have been brought down amid accusations they've sexually harassed or abused models has felt foreign to her in relationship to how she's always run shoots. In 2018, model Danielle Herrington makes history as only the second black model to grace the issue. She bravely the US Olympic Committee on several occasions, and even attended Nassar's sentencing hearing to read her impact statement in person. On Sunday, she returned for Plein's Fall 2018 show.
The photo series depicts models and athletes such as Robyn Lawley and Raisman posted nude, with words written in black in across their arms, legs, and torso. "I remember also Tyra told me that you're a businesswoman now".
As a child growing up in Los Angeles, she believed that being in front of the camera was in her blood.
"You are so sick", Raisman said to Nassar and the court.
She began working it toward the camera, as captured on the video, while winds are caressing her hair.
Looks like Herrington is going to be everywhere now.
