Issue Features Inaugural “Top 100” List Of Content Creators Of 2021 That Are Impacting The Cultural Zeitgeist, One Post At A Time

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 19 - Today the editors of Modern Luxury Media, the nation's largest luxury media company, release its annual Power Issue featuring the most influential tastemakers, content creators and innovators across different industries from coast to coast.

At Modern Luxury, we make it our mission to showcase aspirational and inspirational stories of change and innovation within our communities from coast to coast. That’s why for this year’s Power Issue, Modern Luxury has carefully constructed its Top 100 list of today’s most powerful content creators who are using platforms from TikTok to YouTube, to inform our cultural zeitgeist IRL.

In an era where digital and social media influencers are the new A-listers, there couldn’t be a more fitting cover star for this year’s Power Issue than Charlie D'Amelio and her family. At 17, Charlie currently clocks around 112.6 million followers on TikTok, making her the most followed content creator on the short-form video app worldwide. Her older sister, Dixie, has 50.9 million followers. Add in parents Heidi and Marc (and their family handle of @dameliofamilyofficial), and the family teeters somewhere around 200 million followers collectively. To wrap your brain around those numbers, that means about two-thirds of America is following what this family from Norwalk, Connecticut is up to. Modern Luxury EVP of Editorial Phebe Whahl spoke with the “first family of Tik Tok” for this month’s Power Issue on how their new record-busting social media fame has impacted the family, and how the pandemic has kept them authentic and grounded in the midst of it all.

"The D'Amelio's are the next generation's clap back to the overfiltered, Facetuned distortions and pressures of the Instagram age,” said Phebe Wahl, EVP of Editorial at Modern Luxury. “Their relatable realness has clearly struck a chord at a time when we all crave something more authentic. We hope that our Power Issue truly articulates that authenticity is today’s best currency and inspires our readers to tap into their own modes of creativity this Summer.”

In celebration of the Power Issue, Modern Luxury will also be launching their first-ever TikTok. Under username @modern.luxury, the account will feature exclusive, behind-the-scenes clips from the D’Amelio cover shoot and extra social content around the Creator 100 list under the hashtag: #Top100Creators.
