New York, NY — America’s hottest felon turned male model, Jeremy Meeks, has swapped a California prison jumpsuit and handcuffs for high fashion.
Jeremy Meeks, whose “hot mug shot” went viral, walked the runway for designer Philippe Plein at the New York Public Library on Monday night. Meeks modeled a black puffa jacket with black trousers in front of celebrities including Kylie Jenner, Paris Hilton, and Madonna.
He was also pictured shirtless backstage showing off his striking blue eyes, muscular chest, and unusual tattoos.
Meeks shot to fame when his mug shot was posted on a Californian police department’s Facebook page in 2014.
Meeks received hundreds of messages from female admirers on his official Facebook page following his debut. But he made his loyalties clear by posting a Valentine’s Day message to his wife.
“Happy “Valentine’s Day, baby. You’re the most amazing wife a husband could ever have… the best thing that ever happened to me… love you forever,” he wrote.
