It’s believed Charli can charge advertisers as much as $500,000 for a single sponsored post!

Perhaps that’s not surprising considering the average adult in the US spends around 40 minutes per day on the video-focused social networking service owned by Chinese company ByteDance Ltd.

TikTok star sisters Dixie D’Amelio and Charli D’Amelio have quickly climbed the social ladder due to their popular posts on the video-sharing app.

They, along with their parents, attended the 2022 Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, and both dressed like seasoned guests.

Dixie posed for photos in a floor-length black Khoon Hooi gown covered in studs. The figure-hugging ensemble was paired with a super smoky eye and a red lip, as well as long straight locks parted down the middle.

Her sister Charli had on a strapless black Prada gown. She opted for a sequined dress with a slit and black Le Silla stiletto heels.

The 17-year-old social media personality sported a diamond necklace and bracelet and carried a black clutch.

Plenty of critics have bashed the D’Amelio sisters for attending events such as the Oscars without seemingly any merit, but their appearance at the viewing party has cemented their status as bona fide celebrities.
