Tomorrow is a big day for Valentino. As the fashion house gets honored with the 2011 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion at tomorrow's luncheon, 30 or so vintage Valentino Haute Couture pieces will be available online at 1stdibs.com. The collection will be presented by Rare Vintage owner Juliana Cairone, and spans from the '60s to the '80s. WWD reports that the items will include "a bumblebee Lesage-embroidered jacket, and, of course, the ubiquitous red gown." [WWD]
