'Hot Mugshot Guy' Makes Runway Debut at New York Fashion Week
Jeremy Meeks has gone from the perp walk to the catwalk.
The man once known as dubbed "Prison Bae" has traded his orange prison jumpsuit for something a little more chic as he strut his stuff on a New York Fashion Week runway Monday.
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.
Meeks tweeted following the event and thanked Plein's for the opportunity.
