Charli and Dixie D’Amelio Compare Themselves to the Jenner Sisters: Which One is Kylie, and Which One is Kendall?
Charli D’Amelio, age 16, and her older sister, 18-year-old Dixie D’Amelio, are two of the top TikTok creators on the app. Recently, the famous sisters — who have millions of followers between them — confirmed which Jenner sister each one is more like: Kylie or Kendall Jenner.

In a recent Elle profile of the D’Amelio sisters, the interview asked Charli and Dixie: “Which famous sibling are you?”
“First up is Kendall and Kylie,” she offered, referencing the famous Jenner sisters.
“You’re more like Kylie,” Charli D’Amelio told her sister, Dixie. “I think I’m more like Kendall.” Kendall Jenner, who seemed — at least as a teen on Keeping Up With the Kardashians — a bit more subdued, better matches D’Amelio humble, pleasant personality.
“Yeah, I feel more like Kylie,” Dixie confirmed. Dixie, for her part, appears to be a bit higher energy and outgoing, a bit less polished than her sister — which, (with no shade intended at all) does remind us a bit of Kylie Jenner.
The D’Amelios, reaching the height of their careers at a young age, are already paving a different career paths
In addition to personality type, the sisters’ paths to success appear fairly similar to their Jenner-sister counterpart. For example, within the TikTok community, Charli D’Amelio has taken a more “traditional” journey to fame (if “traditional” is a word that can even be used to describe online celeb status). Charli D’Amelio boosted her follower count — now over 75 million — by doing the famous TikTok dances, which she continues to post (often with her iconic Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee).
Kendall Jenner, while being born into one of the world’s most famous families, built her own career in the established, high-end world of the modeling industry, doing runway shows and high-profile modeling shoots. Kylie Jenner, on the other hand, has dipped her toes into various business ventures, focusing now on her cosmetics brand.
Like Kylie Jenner, Dixie D’Amelio has had a bit more of a unique, scattered approach to her TikTok success than Charli.
“Dixie’s TikTok videos include comedic skits, lip-syncing videos, and other miscellaneous front-camera footage,” Insider reported in a 2020 interview with Dixie D’Amelio.
“I just try to show my personality, because I’m not a dancer,” D’Amelio explained.

Also, though she’s the older one, Dixie has ridden a few of the coattails of her 16-year-old sister’s skyrocketing fame. (Dixie seems like she would admit this herself; participating in a TikTok trend that asked creators to do the “thing that made them famous,” Dixie ran to Charli and threw her arms around her little sister.)
“Charli and I are two different people …” she told Insider. “I don’t want to do what she’s doing. I don’t want to be a dancer, because that’s her thing and I have my thing.”
TikTok’s famous D’Amelio sisters just launched their own nail polish line with a beauty brand
Like Kylie Jenner, Dixie is balancing several different career opportunities. The older D’Amelio sister released a song recently called “Be Happy,” which is all over TikTok.
With her background in theater, Dixie is also diving into some acting opportunities.
“She’s already tried her hand at on-screen acting with a recent role on Brat TV, a media company airing its shows on YouTube. Her show Attaway General premieres in May,” Insider continued. She’s also getting into brand partnerships. Per the publication:
… skincare company Dermalogica named D’Amelio an ambassador for the Clear Start product line. She also often works directly with TikTok on projects like their Happy at Home live video series.
Still — like the Jenner sisters — the D’Amelios have several brand partnerships that they work on together: their brand new nail polish line Orosa Beauty, the retailer Hollister, and UNICEF, for which the D’Amelio sisters launched an anti-bullying campaign.
