Kanye West may have gotten A-listers and even Anna Wintour to attend his Yeezy collection show at New York Fashion Week, but the critics are not impressed.

Cathy Horyn, famed ex-New York Times critic now working for New York Magazine, trashed his show, the attendees and the clothes in a scathing review, “Kanye West Is Fooling The Fashion World.”

She called it “kind of amusing” and said she was “embarrassed” to find herself running to a show with clothes “that looked a lot like Spanx.”

“This second round of drab, broken-down basics proved he can’t be taken seriously as a designer, but nevertheless many people in fashion do seem to take West seriously — they keep showing up expectantly for his performances — and that makes them fools,” she wrote.

Horyn continued that West is only receiving any attention because of his front row of buzzy stars and wife Kim Kardashian. “They wouldn’t bother with this stuff if it were offered by an unknown, and if it’s the spectacle they seek, it changes as little as the clothes,” she wrote.

Twitter users were just as unkind, writing that the clothes looked like “potato sacks” and for “dirty homeless” people as well as drawing comparisons to The Hunger Games.

Ice T did not seem to fancy Kanye as a designer either, tweeting: “Kanye’s fashion show stuff looks like future slave gear to me… Just sayin.”
