Meet Sports Illustrated’s Newest Rookies Bianca Balti & Danielle Herrington

Sports Illustrated’s newest rookies, Danielle Herrington and Bianca Balti, are heating up the pages of the magazine!

A native of Lodi, Italy, Bianca Balti studied web and graphic design in college before she was discovered. The outspoken mother of two is very interested in social issues and isn’t afraid to speak her mind on the topics that matter most to her. She recently participated in an anti-bullying march.

With two kids in tow, she would love to continue to expand her family one day.

Danielle Herrington was raised in sunny Southern California, where she began her modeling career at age 13. She has been described by GQ as "already a pro on Instagram.”

Danielle's unique and imposing look thrusted her into the limelight in her early 20s, and she has had an active career since. The new NYC transplant misses the chill vibes of SoCal, but constantly feels like she’s on the set of a movie in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city.

In January, it was announced that Olympic gold medal-winning gymnasts Simone Biles and Aly Raisman would be making their debuts in Sport’s Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue.

The issue, out in February, will coincide with the first-ever Vibes by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Event in Houston, February 17 and 18. All of the models in the issue will be in attendance.

The event will offer fans a cultural festival that spotlights the stars of the iconic Swimsuit Issue franchise, the best in food and music by Diplo and Miguel.
