Boutique hotel 40 Winks has launched Tart, a new event, which will make you feel like a vintage starlet.

Not only do you get sandwiches, yummy cakes and chocolates, but you’ll also be made-up and given advice by vintage beauty experts Lipstick and Curls and make-up artist to the stars, Bella Cruikshank.

You can try one or two (if you’re feeling brave) of the hotel’s cocktails or a glass of bubbly and slip on a 50s evening gown from a selection from Vogue favourites, vintage secret with expert style advice provided by Naomi and Fleur.

‘Tart’ will also play host to some of London’s brightest and coolest young designers like award winning milliner Katherine Elizabeth and the likes of Minna, whose creations incorporate lace, brooches and buttons found at antique markets. Expect jewels, lingerie and lots of lovely shoes, which you can buy as a reminder of the day.

And if this all this proves a little too taxing, relax with a massage from the well trained hands of Xhilarate, or try a refreshing fruit or herbal tea from the new Lipton Infusions collection.

The event costs £60 per person and will run on Saturday 14 November and Saturday 12 December. But don’t worry if you’re not getting married until next year as this event will also take place monthly throughout 2010.
