Draya Michele 100% knows how to up the ante. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder is a regular when it comes to the sizzling Instagram updates – even coronavirus quarantine isn’t going to stop the “Basketball Wives LA” alum from spicing up her social media.
Professional photographers might be off-limits as Draya social distances, but this pro likely has a full backlog of already-snapped images – today’s one may well have been an example. Regardless, it was going the extra mile on the sexy front, and it just about stayed within Instagram’s rules.
Draya’s photo didn’t hold back. The ex to Orlando Scandrick was showing her ex what he’s missing, flaunting her killer body in a pale mauve lingerie set – the agenda didn’t mention the star’s former fiancé, though, as Draya influenced for Rihanna‘s Savage x Fenty line.
Draya had been snapped seated on stairs and wearing very little indeed as both her bra and matching panties were sheer – the latter, in particular, seemed to be teetering with the platform’s no-nudity rules, but Draya got away with it as she shot the camera a piercing gaze.
Draya’s post didn’t go unnoticed, with comments and likes coming in fast – the latter sat at over 74,000 by the time the update was just an hour old. Fans were losing it.
“Oh, you fine, fine,” one user wrote.
“Damn!” another exclaimed.
Some fans did appear to have paid attention to Draya’s caption, though: “How I wait to surprise you after I break in your house #yeahimprettybutimloco
@savagexfenty #savagexambassador,” the star had written.
“Damn come break in right now ?????,” a fan replied, with a fair few more echoing the thought.
Draya’s post today didn’t come as a full-blown ad. Nonetheless, it saw the star influencing in a traditional way. Pay on Instagram correlates with following – the higher the fanbase, the bigger the paycheck, something that experts over at Vox broke down. Note, these are just estimates.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post!”
Draya has 7.9 million Instagram followers.
Draya was profiled by Who What Wear this year, with the feature seeing the star dish on her style and Revolve collab, alongside being asked what she’d tell her younger self.
“I would tell my younger self to not get caught up on what you want to do for a career,” Draya replied, adding:
“Everyone doesn’t know what they want to be, and in my 20s, I definitely struggled with it. I didn’t feel like I fully knew until I was about 27, so I tell girls that are younger than me and that are still struggling, that it’s okay to not know.”
