Draya Michele swinging her hip in Gucci thigh-high boots is causing a hoopla on her Instagram. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder’s weekend update brought designer vibes like woah, although the “Basketball Wives LA” alum was out to promote something decidedly affordable. Draya, a Fashion Nova partner, was in influencer mode for the affordable clothing brand, with her photo shouting out the label, plus Draya’s giant pancakes and French toast appetite. For fans of the swimwear mogul, a win-win. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Draya continues to make headlines both for her new relationship with NFL player Tyrod Taylor and her just-dropped 8 Other Reasons jewelry collab.
The photo, showing the mom of two’s killer figure, came from an outdoor terrace and with Draya posing amid potted plants and a wood trellis. The ex to Orlando Scandrick, flauting her gym-honed figure, sported thigh-high Gucci monogrammed boots, a brown shorts playsuit worn unbuttoned, and a chocolate-brown bra being flashed for a sexy flourish.
Draya, tagging Fashion Nova and also wearing hoop earrings, took to her caption with her usual edge – it’s never dull with this reality face.
“All I’m saying is, I might wanna get pancakes AND french toast… and that’s my business. K
@fashionnova fashionnovapartner,” she wrote.
Draya, this year admitting she was on the “military diet,” might eye up French toast, but the workout queen who trains with “Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter’s trainer MackFit, burns off every calorie. And today’s post left her fans burning with envy.
Draya didn’t #ad her post. The disclaimer required by Instagram doesn’t appear necessary when a partner status is in place or when the promotional agenda is clear. Pay on the platform correlates directly with following, something that experts at Vox have outlined with suggested figures.
“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, boasting 8.2 million IG fans, has recently gained 100,000 followers. Scroll for more photos.
Draya may still be promoting Fashion Nova, but she seems to have solidly lost her ambassador status with 32-year-old Rihanna’s SavagexFenty lingerie line. Summer 2020 brought Draya joking about rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s July foot shooting, with the “WAP” rapper shading Draya on Twitter shortly after.
Draya, who had suggested a “Bobby & Whitney” aspect to the shooting, alongside inferring that getting shot in the feet is sexy as she spoke on the “Wine and Weed” podcast, suffered for her words. SavagexFenty unfollowed Draya shortly after, also wiping all promo photos of her from its Instagram.
