Draya Michele is fresh from showing her 8 million Instagram followers how she "officially owns the corner." The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder made headlines at the end of March for showing off her 2011-founded empire, with this week bringing the "Basketball Wives LA" alum's razor sharp wit back.

Draya updated her Instagram on Thursday for a reminder of her killer body and her knack for finding short, but grabbing captions. While high-end brands
such as Charlotte Olympia were tagged in the image, the post wasn't promotional.

'Did You Get The Position?', She Got 'Every Position'

Draya's photo showed her professionally photographed – likely prior to the coronavirus pandemic – with the brunette seen flaunting her killer body as she posed on a white block stool and shot against a lilac wall. A racy and thigh-grazing slit dress was showing off the entrepreneur's toned legs, with a ruched and long-sleeved finish up top contrasting the more dangerous leggy look down below.

Posing in platform high heels with hoop earrings and delivering a piercing gaze, Draya wrote:

"Nobody: did you get the position? Me: I got every position. #HIRED."

Draya's post proved a hit, racking up over 51,000 likes in ten hours – the star has also gained 100,000 Instagram followers since taking to her stories yesterday with that spandex sports bra and leggings set (and the $500 Dyson Airflow).

"Every position, fasho," one fan wrote.

"Ayyy caption," another said.

"I love that color on you, GORGEOUS" was another comment.

Celebrity likes also came in from 23-year-old model and girlfriend to rapper Future, Lori Harvey, plus 45-year-old reality face Larsa Pippen and Lil Wayne's daughter Reginae Carter.

Not Just Words, Built Million-Dollar Swim Empire

Draya's boss caption seemed reflective of the status quo. The star founded her Mint Swim brand last decade with just $12,000, watching it grow to a $1 million brand by 2017. With 22-year-old billionaire and reality star Kylie Jenner featuring Mint Swim during her 2019 "Kylie Skin Summer Trip" in Turks & Caicos, though, the company may well be worth more.

"I started with four styles of swimsuits and from there, things just grew via social media," Draya told Refinery29 when profiled by the media outlet.

'I'm Not Afraid To Cover It Up', Lingerie Trends On Twitter

Draya wound up trending on Twitter towards the end of March as sizzling lingerie videos of her in Rihanna's Savage x Fenty underwear went viral. As to flashing the flesh, Draya has opened up to state that it isn't always necessary.

“It's important to show people that I am versatile. I can still have the same sex appeal in clothing. I’m not afraid to cover it up," she said, adding:

"I used to think that I were fully-clothed that I wouldn’t get likes, or people weren’t going to pay attention to me, but that’s not the case.”
