Doing God’s work, the good people at New York magazine’s The Cut delivered the first-ever in-depth profile of one tragically unsung hero— 19-year-old Instagram sensation Alexis Ren (even if they were a bit tongue-in-cheek in their treatment).

Christening her a “a flawlessly filtered bikini body come to life,” the piece revealed much about the plucky young swimsuit model behind those impossibly sun-drenched Instagram shots.

Below, here are 8 things we learned about the supremely beautiful Alexis Ren:

1. Her measurements are an unreal 34-22-34, no thanks to Photoshop.

“I hate when people say I Photoshop myself … I do work this hard, and I have this body.”

2. She got scouted at age 13 and was self-sufficient by 15.

“I want to show that I make my own money, and I pay for my own things, and that’s how I’ve always been since I was 15.”

3. Social media glory came by chance.

“I started posting on my social media super-young. I didn’t really understand what it was. When I was about 15, I started posting behind the scenes of shoots, little things of me holding up the color corrector, cute things, me in a bikini. It was just all innocent and fun, and I saw people really starting to respond to it.”

Life nowadays 🏴

4. She refuses to sell out to sponsored content.

“My biggest thing is that I never want to sell out. Or be a sellout.”

5. She tans every day.

“I have to get at least 20 minutes of sun every day. An hour is the best because it’s good for you. You need it. I need it to have that little spark … I think of the sun as my battery, my charger. So if I don’t get sun for a long time, I feel very honestly drained.”

Something different 💧

6. That’s why she always seems to be on vacation.

“I have to have sun. That’s why I travel so much … My life goal right now is to have in my wardrobe a bikini and a fur coat and nothing in between.”

7. She’s a major Gigi Hadid fan.

“I look up to Gigi Hadid. I love where she’s taken herself, I love what brands she’s working on. I respect her because I understand … I mean, girls like her open the doors for girls like me. So all I can do is thank her.”

8. She’s about to get even sexier on social media.

“I’m, like, testing my boundaries with social media right now, which has been fun. I have a very puppy girl image, so it’s been fun to kind of be like, Hey, guess who’s turning into a woman.”

One finds limits by pushing them 😏😉
