The first French fashion Oscars were awarded here Wednesday night, in a live-for-television show that took place at the Paris Opera House. It was an event from which Hollywood could take lessons.

Yves Saint Laurent triumphed on his own terms in the fall couture collection he presented here Wednesday. For almost 30 years, from his brief reign at Christian Dior--after Dior died in 1957--to the opening of his own house in 1963, the 51-year-old designer has been considered fashion's king. This season, with Christian Lacroix's entry into couture, Saint Laurent has seen the first serious challenge for his crown.
