Bless his heart, 'Ye just can't catch a break.
Kanye West made his triumphant return to Paris Fashion Week last night and the critics weren't all that impressed.
There were only 20 looks for his fall collection and a good majority of them were Mugler and Givenchy rip-offs.
The New York Times' Eric Wilson said Kanye was supposed to a press preview ahead of the show, but canceled at the last minute because "he got treated unfairly by the press last time" and if "if they don’t understand it, they don’t understand it".
The snafu certainly didn't help win Wilson over, who later wrote in his review: "Mr. West’s approach to making a dress was like a cook wrapping leftover turkey."
We have to admit the styling and panda meets Taylor Momsen makeup was pretty awful.
What do U think? Is it time for Kanye to hang up his hat and focus his attention elsewhere???

We already knew Anna Wintour doesn't like stairs, but apparently she doesn't like taking the elevator with other fashion mortals.
According to the New York Times, Vogue's HBIC and her posse had an elevator just for them at the Plaza Hotel, while everyone else was forced to wait.
Eric Wilson writes:
"At 6 p.m., editors and buyers were lined up in the lobby of the Plaza Hotel, waiting for one of two elevators to ferry them to grand ballroom on the third-floor for the Thakoon show. Ding. The doors of one were held open, but the guests were told to wait. A couple of minutes later, Anna Wintour and company breezed in and took the vacant elevator. Ngh. You get used to it."
The next thing you know she'll be getting airlifted in and out of shows.
