Early Life and Career Beginnings
Alexis grew up in Santa Monica alongside two sisters and a younger brother, mainly homeschooled by their mother who was a health nutritionist expert too. At the age of 13, she was discovered and this led her to start taking modelling opportunities, initially for the label Brandy Melville, and was later hired to model for a series of advertisements for the mobile game entitled “Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire”.

The game has been highly successful, grossing over $518 million with over 51 million downloads.
Magazine Covers and Business
In 2017, Ren was featured on the cover of “Maxim” magazine for their August issue, a men’s magazine initially launched in the United Kingdom but later in the US too. It is best known for photography features of models, actresses and singers during the peak of their careers, and has a circulation of around nine million readers and over 4 million unique viewers. It is now sold in 75 countries worldwide, with over 16 editions. During the same year, Alexis launched her own line of activewear called Ren Active, making her first foray into business.
Activewear is a form of clothing which is worn for physical exercise or sports; the two terms sportswear and activewear are interchangeable. The garments are usually different to accommodate the sports focused on, including specialized garments such as swimsuits or wetsuits. Footwear is also considered when it comes to activewear. General clothing consists of shirts, shorts and tracksuits. Bikinis, crop tops, and undergarments can also be considered under the active wear category. Despite its uses for sports, at times these types of clothes have been popularized as casual wear too. The following year, Alexis was featured in another version of “Maxim”, this time as the cover girl for the March issue of “Maxim” Mexico.
Sports Illustrated and Dancing with the Stars
In 2018, Alexis was featured in the annual issue of “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit”, named Rookie of the Year. The issue often features models wearing swimwear in exotic locales. Due to its popularity, it is usually a precursor to success in the modelling industry, featuring models who would later become supermodels, including the likes of Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Petra Nemcova, Elle Macpherson and Christie Brinkley. Other popular models have also been featured despite not being on the cover, including Niki Taylor.
During the same year, Alexis was announced as one of the celebrities who would be competing in the 27th season of “Dancing with the Stars”, partnering with professional dancer Alan Bersten. The show is a dance competition series based on its UK version “Strictly Come Dancing”, and which has a celebrity paired with a professional dancer performing pre-determined dances competing against other celebrity pairs to gain points from the judges as well as the audience. The couple receiving the lowest number of points and votes gets eliminated each week. Alexis was able to reach the finals of the competition and ended in fourth place.
