Fall Fashion Week moved on to Paris over the weekend, with Lindsay Lohan front and center for a variety of shows. She shared the spotlight with Jared Leto and Charlize Theron at Friday's Christian Dior presentation, but Ms. Theron was back in LA by yesterday for the Oscars. Lindsay stuck around in France to party that night in a green dress before she turned out on Saturday for Viktor & Rolf, which she loved, and yesterday for John Galliano. LL was back on the scene last night to celebrate the launch of Turkish Vogue, as she takes her front row status from one country to the next.

Kathryn Bigelow Wins Big and Fields Questions on Directing, History, and Ex James Cameron in Press Room
Kathryn Bigelow made history tonight at the Oscars, where she was the first female ever to win best director! Her movie The Hurt Locker also took home the night's top prize, best picture. In the press room she politely fielded the inevitable questions about her ex James Cameron, but also what it means to be the inaugural woman with a little gold man for directing. Here's some press room highlights:
- On what it means to be the first female best director Oscar winner: "Well, first of all, I hope I'm the first of many. Of course, I'd love to just think of myself as a filmmaker, and I long for the day when a modifier can be a moot point. But I'm ever grateful if I can inspire some young, intrepid, tenacious male or female filmmaker and have them feel that the impossible is possible and never give up on your dream."
- On dreaming of The Hurt Locker's win: "Well, I don't think I ever dared to hope, but I will say that what was extraordinary was the love from the critical community, and that was like wind in the sails, and it just created a momentum that would not stop. And I hope somehow the critical community could know how much we appreciate it and I appreciate it. Thank you."
- On competing against ex James Cameron: "What it means. Well, first of all, I think he's an extraordinary filmmaker. I have to say, all the nominees are phenomenal, powerful, talented filmmakers, and what an honor. And for me, how humbling it was for me to be in that company, in that conversation. So I have to say, for me, it's a humbling experience . . . I think Jim is very inspiring, and I think he inspires filmmakers around the world, and for that I think I can speak for all of them. We're quite grateful."

Sandra Bullock's speech had many of us tearing up during her speech at tonight's Oscars and when she got back to the press room, she got yet another standing ovation. The best actress winner was humble, sweet, and funny — everything she's gained a reputation of being throughout this amazing award season. Her proud husband Jesse James hung out and watched her answer questions, though she wouldn't divulge what he whispered in her ear when she won and joked that he wasn't really tearing up when she went up to accept since he's such a tough guy. Here's some of the great Sandra quotes:
- On expecting the win: "Are you joking? No. As I said up on that stage, you know, I questioned did I win it or did I just wear everyone down? I didn't aspire to this. I was in awe of it. I admired it. I got to watch it like everyone else did or present, but it wasn't something that I said, 'One day when I get the Oscar...' I didn't think the opportunity would ever present itself for me to rise to that occasion. I was okay with that and I was very happy working and this came out of left field, every pun intended. This is the film I said no to. No one saw coming and I think that's what makes it so overwhelming and unexpected. I look at the company I keep in this category and you can't pick. There's not one that rises above the others, and I love these women that I got to spend this time with ao I feel like I share it equally in five parts. We ladies need to stick together."
- On kissing Ryan Reynolds and Meryl Streep: "Well, first of all, if you saw me in the scene with Ryan, no one noticed me because Ryan was in the scene naked as well. I looked fine but Ryan, who is my friend, is a freak of nature and it's disgusting the way he looks and all people see is him, naked. I think because no one expects Meryl to roll with the flow like that. I think no one realizes how much fun Meryl Streep is. I'm not going to tell you half of what she'd do or what she's done, but everything that Stanley Tucci said is right and then some. I don't think anyone expects her to do it. That's why it makes the headline. She's an awesome broad, and I think she's an extraordinary actor but she's also a really free, fun human being. I think it's because it was Meryl. I kissed Meryl. No one's ever taken the bull by the horns like that before, but I did."
- On the pool incident she referred to in her speech: "See I could have taken that moment and gotten him back. There was also Tom Cruise involved in that as well, and I told them one day, in a very public forum, I would get them back, but George looked so tired tonight. I saw his little eyes and said, I can't do it to him tonight. You might want to ask George about that and see how much information he'll give because it was funny to everyone else but me. It was actually really funny, but not at the time. Ask George."
- On All About Steve and the Razzies: "I want you to watch it. No interruptions, I want you to watch it . . . [The Oscar and the Razzie] are going to sit side by side. As they should. We're the entertainment business — that's what we're supposed to do. Take the good with the not so good. I had the best time at the Razzies last night. It probably means more that they happened at the same time. They're the great equalizer. They'll sit side by side on a nice little shelf somewhere . . . maybe the Razzie on a different shelf . . . lower."

Now that the Oscars have wrapped, let's go back to the beginning and one of the show's best kept secrets: Neil Patrick Harris! The funnyman showed up for an elaborate, Busby Berkeley-style song and dance number to introduce hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. Martin and Baldwin then descended the stage, making jokes about the nominees, as is custom. The George Clooney/Baldwin stare-down was pretty fantastic, but I'm not sure that their combined power topped that of their opening act, NPH. Watch the clip of Harris's number below if you missed it, and then tell me which part of the opening you liked more!
Christoph Waltz took home the best supporting actor Oscar for his work in Inglourious Basterds, and after answering a handful of questions in German, he chatted about the whole experience. Here's highlights:
Oscar night saw many a star on stage at the Kodak Theater, but all eyes were on Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart as they presented a tribute to horror films (which succeeded in giving me the creeps). Sadly Robert Pattinson couldn't join his costars this time, but Taylor filled in and escorted an adorably nervous Kristen down the stairs. Check it out!
Sandra Bullock's best actress speech is filled with funny and touching moments.
