TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio turned to Instagram on Saturday, August 1, to share two stunning snapshots of herself. The 18-year-old graduated from high school yesterday, and now she’s taking some time to reflect upon the past few years of her life.
The beautiful, close-up photographs of D’Amelio were taken by popular photographer Bryant, whom she has worked with in the past for other photo shoots. D’Amelio rocked a white low-cut tank top with thin spaghetti straps.
She accessorized with several pearl earrings in each ear and a delicate chain necklace. She wore her long dark hair down naturally, a few loose stands framing her face. She appeared to wear some light makeup to enhance her already flawless features.
D’Amelio ran her tongue across her teeth playfully as she gazed at the camera. The second snapshot included in the post was taken at a slightly different angle but was just as stunning.

ok so I know I kind of made a general post yesterday, but honestly getting through high school is one of the hardest challenge but biggest accomplishment in my life. The ups and downs made me who I am right now and made me appreciate every single day. In my five years of high school, my entire life changed twice and I’m so grateful for each of these experiences even though at the time I would’ve wished for nothing more than to not be here. i’m so proud of myself and all of the ways I persevered through so many different challenges. Life seems so easy now and so possible. I’m so grateful for all of the people I met along the way even if we no longer talk because that experience just helped me grow and learn even more. thank you all so much for supporting me and watching me continue to grow up right in front of you. I have so much love for every single person I meet and who I cross paths with, thank y’all for everything.???? also photos by @bryant
