Jungle Queens: Tamar Braxton and Draya Michele Battle For the Crown in this Stretch Tiger-Print Dress

Tamar Braxton and Draya Michele may not have much in common outside of being reality TV stars, but thanks to a pricey dress they’ve got one other thing to add to the list.

Both women were pictured in an Alexandre Vauthier tiger-print stretch satin deep V wrap dress. It retails for $3,305 from Saks Fifth Avenue.

Michele posed in the dress in an Instagram photo she uploaded to her account on March 18.

“Vauthier if you’re nasty … ” the former “Basketball Wives” star captioned the image. She also noted in the caption that she purchased the belted dress from Elyse Walker’s Forward, which is touted as “the premier luxury online destination” on its official Instagram page.

Michele kept things simple by wearing her hair up and adding some statement earrings to complete her look.

Fans raved about her appearance in the comments section.

“Sweet outfit😊”


“Queen of the fashion jungle 🔥🔥🔥🔥”

Nearly a month later, Braxton stepped out for date night with her boyfriend David Adefeso Wednesday, April 10.

“Dinner with David💕” Braxton captioned the post of her in the dress.

While the focus of Michele’s outfit was the dress, Braxton paired hers with a fur coat and bright orange pumps. Rather than exposing her bald head, she covered it with a blond, banged wig.

Fans ate up the outfit.

“Oooooooooh, so you just gonna do this whole promo tour SLAYING looks?!…..OK….#Noted that’s all….”

“Beautiful loving the shoes.”

“Yaaaaaaaaaaaas better come thruuuu!!!❤️😍🔥🔥🔥

Then came decision time.

Fans weighed in about who they thought rocked their dress in the best way.

“actually..I like BOTH!! Draya looks very pretty & her accessories accented the dress beautifully. something about Tamar’s whole look is saying ‘Look At Me!’ & I love it! I wouldn’t wear it but she is pulling it off w o looking tacky.”

“Less is more here Tamar 🤦🏽‍♀️”


“Tamar because I like her.”

“Darya perfect. But they are both beautiful women.”

Most, however, gave the title to Michele.

“Draya no question.”

“Draya all day”

“@drayamichele hands down!”
