Everyone deserves a second chance, especially if your mugshot is Internet-breaking sexy. Jeremy Meeks, the blue-eyed man whose Stockton Police Department mugshot went viral in 2014, is among the worthy few, having officially gone from orange jumpsuit to designer threads for Philipp Plein's NYFW presentation this week.
The 33-year-old breakout model wore a black puffy coat with fur trim, motorcycle pants and matching sneakers, walking alongside a star-studded range of catwalk cameos, from Young Thug to Desiigner and Fetty Wap. Meeks' big runway debut was witnessed by an A-list front row, including Madonna, Kylie Jenner, Paris Hilton and more. Backstage, he was the most-wanted model, showing off his tattoos and Plein briefs against a chain-link fence.
The California native served two years in prison for gun possession charges, but he signed an official modeling contract with White Cross Management after just one year behind bars. Since the father of three was released last March, Meeks has been updating his following (of 764k) about his modeling journey on Instagram. Even CR Fashion Book's Carine Roifeld has taken a liking to the felon turned sex symbol.
