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 wondered why Kim Kardashian arrived in Paris at the tail end of Fashion Week, but now it all makes sense.
She was coming to support her "good friend" Kanye West.
The reality starlet had a front row seat at Kanye's fall presentation on Tuesday night, where she attempted to impress fashion's elite by drowning herself in fur and wearing those $6,000 shoes.
Kimmy made sure to tweet a pic of her footwear, telling her Tweethearts:
I j'adore my shoes tonight!
That makes one person…
What do U think of Kim's look???
