Draya Michele Angrily Owns The Beach In Bikini & Gucci Visor

By Rebecca Cukier

Draya Michele promised: "I look angry, but trust me. Pure BLISS" as she updated from a white-sand beach this weekend. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder has ditched her L.A. lock-down for a well-earned vacation – this, from the star who made headlines earlier this year for needing a "pregnancy scare nasty" level of vacay once coronavirus is over.

If you don't live inside Draya's Instagram, the account followed by 8 million just got a sizzling bikini update that clocked Draya over a quarter of a million likes. Scroll for the pics.

Draya's stories showed her solo and padding though powder-thin sands on a tropical beach – the "Basketball Wives LA" alum appeared to have the shore to herself. Draya made her way towards the camera in a killer, two-piece bikini in jet black. She also didn't hold back on the designer merch, seen rocking a white Gucci sun visor, plus hoop earrings.

Selfies then followed from the star who is, except when she's in SavagexFenty lingerie, a full-time brand ambassador for her 2011-founded swimwear line. More below.

Draya is raking it in right now, and not just by saying she "officially owns the corner." The star's swim brand counted Selena Gomez as its customer back in 2017, with 2019 seeing Mint Swim receive a major boost as 22-year-old makeup mogul Kylie Jenner featured it during her Turks & Caicos travels.

Draya founded Mint Swim with the $12,000 she saved up, then watching her company grow to a $1 million valuation in 2017. More of Draya's killer bikini body after the jump, plus what the star has to say about her brand.

Stuff Will 'Probably Sell Out In 14 Seconds'

Speaking to Refinery29, Draya said: “I’m constantly designing and producing stuff, so when comes out, I’ll put it out. If Selena Gomez feels like wearing [our swimsuit], which has happened before, it's going to sell out in probably 14 seconds. But I have the ability to make 3,000 more.”

This reality face has more than just her swim brand, though. Draya fronts 32-year-old singer Rihanna's SavagexFenty lingerie line via her ambassador status. The Fashion Nova partner also has a new Oh Polly collab. Skip the jump for more.

Eyeing Up Nike?

Draya recently posted sporty photos of herself in a Nike tennis dress and with all the attitude in the world. She then followed up with a workout video, asking her fans: "In these 3 slides are a few of my favorites (all for different reasons.) 1. @ethika 2. @nike 3. @fabletics .... which one would y’all be here for?!?"

Elsewhere, Draya has been making headlines for tipping a black waiter more, plus her sense of humor. Scroll for the star attempting to say "Worcester Sauce."
