Raine Michaels, the daughter of the famous musician, Bret Michaels, took to Instagram to share and compare pictures of herself from two different years.


Raine Michaels, the daughter of the famous musician and leader of the rock band "Poison," Bret Michaels, shared two beautiful photos of herself, one from 2019, and one from 2020. She captioned:

"Last year vs. this year."

In the first picture of the brief slide, 2019 Raine was dressed in a short yellow dress decorated with pink floral details. The bell sleeves and plunging sweetheart neckline gave her a sophisticated look.

Sometimes, though, she fires back to a mean comment with a witty response and then blocks the person.

With her sunglasses on, she looked stunning. Her second photo showed Raine dressed in a small grey animal print corset top and sky blue high-waisted jeans.


A wide, vibrant smile graced her face as she shot her hand up, giving the peace sign. Raine looked beautiful in both pictures, and her fans and followers could not help but gush in their comments about how gorgeous she looked.


In 2019, the 19-year-old was announced as one of the top six women moving forward in the year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model search competition.


From there, her modeling career took off, and Bret is hundred percent in support of his little girl's dreams.

The rock music descendant shared the exciting news on her Instagram with a photo of herself dressed in a revealing black swimsuit. Overcome with joy and emotions, the model captioned:

"Feeling so many emotions right now. So beyond grateful to everyone that has believed in me since the beginning of this journey."



The model, who is studying music at Belmont University in Nashville, had dreamed of following that path since she was thirteen.

Raine's mother, Kristi Gibson, was hardly a stranger to the modeling industry, but the youngster's path to success was never easy when the industry could not seem to accept her body type.

She signed a modeling contract at age 16 but was told that she needed to lose weight, even though she was already a size 2. Eventually, the pressure from that agency to change Raine's figure became too much, and she walked away.


Then, in January 2019, she signed with One Management, in New York City. “They were like, ‘We love you as you are. Don’t change,’" she recalled.

Raine is hopeful about the modeling industry steering away from the classical skinny body type, and her Sports Illustrated gig is proof of that.



Raine might have also inspired many fans by modeling, despite struggling with a chronic health condition. In 2010, Bret revealed that his daughter was diagnosed with prediabetes.

While many fans might have wondered what the rock musician would think about his daughter modeling in skimpy swimsuits, the proud father took to Instagram to share how happy he was that his daughter finally realized her dream of becoming a model.


When asked about her father's opinion, Raine said that most fathers would not be comfortable with their daughters modeling swimsuits. Bret, on the other hand, knew the terrains of the industry and "was not weird" about it.

"He wants me to succeed and he doesn’t view it as a sexy picture," Raine said of Bret, "but rather as me making my dreams come true, which makes him so proud of me.”



As for the haters and critics on social media, Raine said she tries not to listen to them and let karma take care of the situation. Sometimes, though, she fires back to a mean comment with a witty response and then blocks the person.

However, Raine admits that there are days where the naysayers who criticize her figure get the best of her. Still, she always tries to lift her mood by going through her direct messages and reading all the positive comments instead of the bad ones.

Whether Raine is striking poses for a magazine camera or sharing throwbacks on her social media while relaxing at home, the 20-year-old always has the support of her family, friends, and fans.
