Alexis Ren's complete style transformation

Alexis Ren first came into the spotlight after gaining a massive Instagram following, which now checks in at just over 13 million.

While the blonde stunner started off sharing posts of her tropical vacations (mostly with then-boyfriend Jay Alvarrez), her modeling gigs and snippets of her daily life, she has now become a household name for a variety of other reasons.

The former ballerina has since gone on to tackle a number of notable accomplishments. From gracing Maxim's cover to designing her own activewear line and creating her own Youtube channel to being named a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Rookie just last year, the 22-year-old doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Most recently, Ren competed on season 27 of ABC's 'Dancing with the Stars' where her fanbase grew and grew. She was partnered up with professional dancer Alan Bernstein, who she dated for a short time. The popular duo came in fourth place. 

From fashion week runways to red carpets and TV stages, Ren's style has definitely changed over the years, but it seems like a few things -- midriff-baring tops, athleisure-inspired looks as well as black and red outfits -- will always have a place amongst her style staples. Scroll through the gallery above to see Alexis Ren's complete style transformation.

Alexis Ren Sexiest Instagrams of 2019
naps
shooting at the beach will always be my favorite
no makeup needed when I have @sonyadakar
I’m definitely not going to Bali tomorrow
are you really going to just scroll by without saying hi?
have you ever looked at someone and hope they stay in your life forever
I just love flowers. That is all
one of my goals is to help create a world where people can connect deeply and live without fear of rejection. Where we can connect from authenticity, not insecurities, and It’s not what can I take from this person, but rather what can I do for this person.
come find me
I can’t wait to look back on these days in 15 years and joke about all the memories
how beautiful it is to realize that you are the girl you’ve always wanted to be
being homeschooled my entire life classrooms are really intimidating. Now that I’m taking acting classes it’s really taking me outside my comfort zone. what are you doing to challenge yourself lately?
If someone makes you happy, make them happier
It was 6 am and I couldn’t sleep
don’t commit to me, commit to evolving and I’ll meet you there
I basically have two moods, either let’s do something spontaneous and awesome...or let’s just lay in bed all day, talk about space, and forget the world exists.
bless the people who just want to be better, do better, feel better; who refuses to give up despite the shit life pulls. we all in this bitch together...go women. go men. go earth. go all of us.
Book recommendations please & thank you
It’s one of those five cups of coffee days
currently hiring joke tellers. Apply in the comments.
Happy girl cause I found a new skincare brand that I truly believe in & love. @sonyadakar is going to take me through a beauty boot camp which means I’ll be doing different treatments of hers for 6-8 weeks. I’ve never done something like this before, I can’t wait to share my experience 😊 (and no this isn’t an ad, I just really believe in her products and what she stands for)
Huge or tiny, what’s the most recent thing you’ve learned about yourself?
because in the end its all about you. you are the years, you are the moments, you are the smiles and tears. you are the words you said and the words you left in your head. you are everything, and once you understand that, you will realize your potential
night swims
A lil shout out to @sonyadakar x not only has she become someone I adore but she’s also blessed my skin. If you scroll you’ll find me ranting about my favorite moisturizer. Okay. Love you bye.
