After becoming Instagram famous, Ren’s next feat will be Sports Illustrated magazine. Alexis is named newest rookie of the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Alexis was recently revealed as the fifth member of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2018, modeling her shots in Aruba. She joins supermodels Chase Carter, Robin Holzken, Sailor Brinkley Cook and Anna De Paula who will also be featured in the swimsuit edition. In comparison to these experienced supermodels, Ren’s popularity is largely from her Instagram page and recent modeling work as Maxim’s 2017 Cover Girl. Ren’s fans, while anticipating her new modeling career with Sports Illustrated, are hoping that she will continue to keep up her title as Instagram superstar as well.
