Option B - is wordy & awkward. Furthermore, it isn't parallel.

1st part - for having ... personality (why not for her personality?)
2-nd part - for her ... renderings

I think, there is a problem with style, not with grammar.

"having" - almost/always wrong in GMAT. Besides, (b) is not parallel

I agree that "having" is almost always incorrect

Besides , E conveys the meaning as well in a simple way

It is all about parallelism.

As well known for x as for y.

E is the right answer.

Remember that "having" is ALMOST always wrong in GMAT, but not always.
