Rapper and television personality Chanel West Coast gave her 3.3 million Instagram followers a peek into her personal life with her latest Instagram update, which was a massive post that celebrated one of her close friends. She tagged her friend, chef and model Brandin LaShea, in the caption of the post, and told her followers that they have been friends since Chanel was in the 2nd grade.
In the first picture she shared, Chanel rocked a pair of distressed Daisy Dukes and a gingham-printed bikini top. She channeled a retro vibe with a red headscarf and curls, and added a few accessories to express her style, including a pair of rose-tinted sunglasses and thick hoop earrings. Her friend likewise showed off her physique in a knotted t-shirt and red mini skirt.
For the second snap, the pals posed in swimwear. Brandin rocked a black bikini that showed off her curves, and Chanel looked colorful in a rainbow one-piece swimsuit with a plunging neckline and sexy lace-up details along the sides.
The third snap showed the duo out enjoying some drinks together, and Chanel had shorter blond hair in the throwback snap. She shared several additional snaps of the duo together, doing everything from posing for what appeared to be professionally-taken photographs to chilling outside on the grass. Chanel finished off the update with a photo of the two of them splashing in a pool them they were children, with just their smiling faces visible as they had a blast together.
