Kanye West Tries, Fails To Crash McQueen Show

It seems that aspiring fashionista Kanye West had some trouble nabbing front row seats at Paris' hottest shows. Page Six reports that the rapper turned up at McQueen without being invited. And then -- shock! -- he wasn't let in.

The gossip column reached out to PR firm KCD and a rep said, "Mr. West requested to attend [the Balmain show] and we let him know we would not be able to accommodate him. He chose to come to the door anyway and we kindly let him know we could not accommodate him."

Kanye supposedly pulled a similar stunt at Balmain, but was ultimately welcomed through "a side entrance by 'venue management, not through the front door,'" another rep explains and Page Six writes.

West was also missing from the Louis Vuitton show, but sources said he didn't ask for an invite. So there.
