Aly Raisman shares powerful message in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue photos

  • Kate Upton has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue three times

Tuesday, the highly anticipated annual issue debuted with Herrington featured in a skimpy pink bikini - making her only the third black model to ever get the coveted spot.

"Women do not have to be modest to be respected - Live for you!" she wrote in a social media posting about the photo shoot.

As she cavorts on the beach, hands all over her size-16 frame, Ashley suddenly appears in the most supportive swimsuit known to big-busted womankind; the forearm bra top. "I was balling. I worked so hard for this", she said this morning.

The model from Compton, Los Angeles, was first featured in the USA publication past year (17), and has now landed the coveted cover spot.

As you can see in the video above, Danielle Herrington is the newest cover model for Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue.


Raisman has made headlines not only for her impressive medal count-racked up in both team and individual events at both the 2012 and 2016 Olympics-but also as a strong voice in the #MeToo movement.

The model, who was clad in just a golden tulle skirt, was positioned perfectly for what she describes as a "hero shot" that brings to mind visions of the Little Mermaid.

Herrington said she hopes to continue to inspire young black girls the way Banks inspired her. The Compton, Calif. native mesmerized as she posed for her first professional shoot (EVER) in attractive Fiji. "You are the living embodiment to say that dreams do come true". All those things separately don't guarantee a cover, though. Judging by paparazzi photos from the time of the nasty tumble, Upton seemingly did not let it affect her as she was all smiles just minutes after the fall.

The model, who stands at 5-feet-10-inches, was in the middle of a shoot on a lovely beach in Aruba when a giant wave knocked her down to the sandy ground. "She owned every single second of her shoot", the editor continued.
