KEY BISCAYNE, Fla., Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Singer Beyonce, kneeling in the white sand of Key Biscayne, Fla., is Sports Illustrated's dream girl on the 2007 swimsuit edition cover.

"I'm nervous. I don't know what my friends will say," the singer said in a video posted on SI's Web site, adding that some probably would be "shocked."

The photo shoot gave Beyonce a chance to show off her House of Dereon fashion label. She said her mother, Tina, designed the suits.

Posing for the swimsuit edition placed Beyonce with some elite company: supermodels Christie Brinkley, Elle Macpherson, Rachel Hunter, Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks all were SI swimsuit models.

"I wanted to so something classy, something that I'll be proud of years from now," Beyonce said.
