Dixie and Charli usher in their modeling era with an iconic cover, adorning the front of Magazine Vthe summer number which reads “THE DYNASTY OF AMELIO.” And they didn’t do it alone – the sisters were joined by none other than their mother, Heidi D’Amelio.
Charli just turned 18 and has a huge net worth, and Dixie turns 21 in August (she just celebrated Noah Beck’s 21st birthday on the beach and will be performing Carpool Karaoke soon). The two are already doing such great things early in their careers, and yet, despite their rocket to fame, the sisters have always insisted on not correcting imperfections. Their Hulu series The D’Amelio Show That’s clear, and the support of D’Amelio’s parents has helped Dixie and Charli navigate their new lives.
For the cover, Charli wore yellow and green Prada dresses, while Dixie donned a red Prada dress as well as a totally out of this world Valentino sequin dress. Their mom tapped into her inner 70s energy with a swirling green Etro ensemble with (very Euphoria) cutouts. All three ladies wore chunky gold jewelry from Tiffany and Co. to tie together all of their editorial looks. Charli, Dixie and Heidi sported reverse mod-style eye makeup with exaggerated lashes and graphic white eyeliner and channeled 60s glamor with voluminous, bouffant-style hair. The photos were taken by the photography duo Domen & Van de Velde.
Dixie said V Magazine, “We’ve had a lot of comments that say, ‘Parents are in control, they want this and they want that. The TikTok star explained, “If I see someone say something like that, it really hurts because my parents are the best thing in my life.”
And if you’re wondering if their mom Heidi is their manager like OG Momager Kris Jenner? Not enough. “We remained their parents. We will always be their parents. We will never be their managers, bosses or anything,” she explained. Heidi is proud of her daughters, exclaiming, “Dixie sang in Madison Square Garden!” Like what the hell! And Charli just did the Dirty Dancing thing with Derek and Julianne Hough – things you dream about as a kid and that’s why it’s my favorite part.
Charli and Dixie are still doing regular sister things — like going to Disneyland together — but the two are learning to date on their own. Charli, who recently turned 18, explains that “it’s such a turning point in my life where I have to force myself to get away from my parents and learn things on my own and it’s very scary. But I’m very excited to find out who I am, who I want to be and what I want to do.”
The myth that everyone has it together is just that – a myth. Dixie tells Magazine V, “I’m 20 and I literally have no idea what I’m doing. There’s no rule about it and I just want to have fun and do what I love and if people enjoy it and like it and get it then that’s perfect If it’s not, they don’t. […] I just want to have fun and share what I love with the world.”
It’s clear that the D’Amelios love each other deeply and will always have each other as a support system as they figure out how to navigate their lives in the spotlight. Too cute! We have no choice but to stand. ❤️
