Herrington was raised in Compton, California, but rose to fame after becoming a resident of Brooklyn Bushwick neighborhood. Growing up, she attended private school, which she credits with keeping her out of neighborhood troubles. Herrington came from a working family. She describes her childhood as normal and says she was focused on school until college. She majored in psychology.
Herrington started envisioning herself as a professional model at the age of 8. She attended John Casablancas’ modelling school at age 10 or 11 with the encouragement of her mother. She began modelling at age 13, and Herrington was featured in GQ in November 2016 before she had 10,000 Instagram followers as an Instagram model on the rise who had already done jobs for Victoria Secret. She first appeared in the Swimsuit issue in 2017, which she booked four months after moving to New York City to pursue her career at age 21. The 2017 Swimsuit issue photoshoot, which took place in Fiji, was her first major photoshoot. Her first runway performance was her New York Fashion Week debut at the Philipp Plein spring show in September 2017 along with Irina Shayk and Adriana Lima. She was selected as the SI Swimsuit issue cover model for the 2018 issue, becoming the third black woman to appear on the cover of the Swimsuit Issue—after Tyra Banks (1997) and Beyonce (2007). Herrington shot the 2018 Swimsuit Issue in the Bahamas. The Sunday two days before she was selected for the Swimsuit cover she again walked the runway for Plein.
As a model, she has been featured in promotional and endorsement material for a number of high fashion brands.
To become a top swimsuit model, you need a great body and Danielle has certainly honed one with her consistent workout routine. She hits the gym three to four times a week for cardio sessions.
She is a big fan of HIIT (high-intensity interval training). She often slacks off while doing slow and steady cardio, so instead goes for high intensity.
Danielle has also included Pilates in her fitness regime. The muscle lengthening benefit of the Pilates has made her a big fan. For muscle strengthening, she relies on bodyweight exercises such as sumo squats, pushups, burpees and mountain climbers.
Her other preferred workout mode is boxing. The sparring and other related workouts help her strengthen muscles and at the same time, help burn some serious calories.
When it comes to diet, she focuses on eating clean and organic. Her daily dietary intake is high in protein and low in fat and carbs. She also drinks a lot of water with lemon and cucumber to speed up her metabolism and for clear skin.
