They have their father to thank for many things, including their privileged lifestyles.

And last night Tamara and Petra Ecclestone probably had Bernie to thank for lining their stomachs at the Novikov restaurant.

The girls joined their dad for a night of fine food, and possibly wine, at the eaterie in Mayfair, London.

Both girls went for dark clothing, Tamara, 28, wearing a slinky black lace Alexander McQueen dress with detailing down the front.

She matched the dress with a pair of strappy black Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Meanwhile, sister Petra, 24, went for a black biker jacket and a matching top, with white leggings complete with black lace detail and a pair of black ankle boots.

The girls towered over their father as they posed up for pictures outside the restaurant, which is owned by Arkady Novikov.

Novikov has been panned by some food critics, including Jay Rayner at the Observer who said: 'Don't go to Novikov. Keep not going. Keep not going a lot. In a city with a talent for opening hateful and tasteless restaurants, Novikov marks a special new low. That's its real achievement.'

Before they headed out Tamara took to her trusty Twitter account to bemoan her wardrobe dilemma.

Obviously being the daughter of a billionaire means she has a multitude of items to choose from which probably causes her distress on a daily basis.

She wrote: 'Getting ready for dinner with Petra tonight wardrobe dilemma! Decided to wear an Alexander Mcqueen dress and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. I'm ready for a martini!'

Earlier this week the girls hit Sloane Street to top up their wardrobe supplies.

Petra is currently visiting London from Los Angeles, where she now resides with husband James Stunt.
