Jeremy Meeks took to the catwalk as a celebrity packed room, including Madonna and Kylie Jenner, looked on as he appeared at designer Philipp Plein's fashion show.

With piercing blue eyes and chiseled cheekbones, Meeks' mugshot became an internet sensation back in 2014 when he was jailed on weapons- and gang-related charges in California. He had nicknames like "Hot Mugshot Guy," "Hot Convict" and "Prison Bae." 

At the time, his wife Melissa told Inside Edition how surprising the attention was.

"It was very shocking to me. I didn't see this coming," she said.

The father of three has a long criminal record dating back to his teenage years.

But now, he insists he's a changed man.
