The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2018 Launch Event was in New York City last night, and everyone was there. Like the five people you might recognize. Just realized Alexi Ren was asked to be in the issue, and think it probably has to do with her classic model face and not her 12M Instagram followers. Her 12M Instagram followers wasn’t even a factor in her being chosen by something that requires to be shared on social media. Good for the SI Swimsuit Issue team.
