Check out the gold tassels and leg-lengthening lace up style of these shoes.
We can even imagine a bride wearing them on her wedding day!
The sisters have also had spots as ‘lifestyle experts’ in the Evening Standard newspaper.
Entries include how to source healthy cocktails (Forte’s Brown’s Hotel in London, naturally) and where to find a ‘sumptuous foodie weekend’ in Sicily (the Verdura Resort, of course). Lydia and Irene’s mother Aliai, 50 (pictured with them), met Forte when he was a 36-year-old playboy and she was just 16.
Since 2014, they have worked full-time at Rocco Forte.
Irene is brand manager — no small undertaking: she compiled a list of housekeeping rules, including four pillows on each hotel bed, and raw juices and nut bars in the mini bars.
For Irene’s 19th birthday party, her father hosted a ‘lace ball’ at his Hotel Amigo in Brussels.
Both went to Oxford University — Lydia’s degree was in modern history and Irene’s in French and Italian — before joining the family firm.
Her first waking activity at the weekend is exercise: a £27-a-time Pilates workout at the uber-trendy Heartcore gym, founded by celebrity trainer Jess Schuring, or a boxing class at boutique gym Kobox, near her Chelsea flat, where three classes cost £50.
Most startling are her ‘Electrical Muscle Stimulation’ workouts (£75 a session at E-Pulsive in Knightsbridge), where a machine sends electrical impulses to her body, allegedly making her muscles contract quicker, so a 20-minute workout of star jumps and running on the spot can burn 500 calories.‘I have become an E-Pulsive regular,’ says Irene.
Sir Rocco (he was knighted in 1995) has five sisters.
His niece, Alex Polizzi, is presenter of Channel 5’s The Hotel Inspector, making it very much a female-dominated dynasty — now estimated to be worth £340 million.
