Draya Michele isn’t just lighting up blocks, the 35-year-old is calling her look “fire” – and she isn’t wrong. The reality star and Mint Swim founder’s Thursday Instagram update was one giant leg flaunt as Draya slipped on a pair of thigh-highs boots, with the post also earning Draya some top-up income as she influenced for Fashion Nova. Draya, who holds a partner status with the affordable clothing giant, may have lost her SavagexFenty gig this year, but Fashion Nova ain’t ditching her. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. They come as Draya continues to flex her entrepreneur muscles – influence on the side she might, but the former “Basketball Wives LA” alum has gigs all over with her 8 Other Reasons jewelry collab and the same with Oh Polly. And that’s minus Mint Swim.
The photos, shot indoors, showed Draya solo and in a low-key carpeted setting. The mom of two, looking fierce, was rocking a wraparound minidress in faded black denim, plus a wowing, white, and thigh-high pair of boots.
Draya, wearing eye glasses, a messy bun, and simple matte makeup, kept neutral in her facial expression, but the caption, as ever, was bomb.
“You a paper chaser, you got the block on fire,” Draya wrote with a fire emoji, also tagging Fashion Nova. The brand has been all over Draya’s Instagram of late, with Black Friday bringing shoppers staggering 90% savings. In fact, Draya has been mixing designer into her Fashion Nova looks lately, this month wearing sheer Gucci-monogrammed stockings in a FN post.
Draya tends not to #ad her Fashion Nova posts. The disclaimer required by Instagram for promotional activity appears eligible for a waive if a partner status is in place or when the promo agenda is clear. Vox‘s know-hows have suggested pay figures, something that correlates with following.
“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 8.2 million Instagram followers. More photos below.
Draya is busy. The star is gearing up for 10-part “Doses of Draya” docu-series, a reality deal that will show a behind-the-scenes take on Draya’s multi-faceted career and overall life. Draya, pumped to be partnered with a black-owned company as her show will air on streaming platform Zeus, just told Vulkan Mag:
“It’s not just the successes of these businesses, it’s also the failures and the trials and tribulations; the obstacles that I faced as well. So they’ll be able to see it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly.”
