Meeks, complete with his signature tear drop tattoo, rose to fame in 2014 when his booking photo went viral after the Stockton Police Department in California posted it on Facebook.

He became an instant Internet celebrity, with users commenting on his good looks.

The self-admitted gang member, who had previously served two years in prison for a grand theft conviction, was sentenced to two more years in prison for felony possession of a firearm.

Jeremy Meeks, also known as the "hot felon" when his mugshot went viral past year, became instantly known for his piercing blue eyes and chiseled cheekbones.

During his NYFW debut, Meeks had some pretty heavy hitters following him on the runway.


The "hot felon" made his runway debut by walking in the Philipp Plein show on Monday (Feb. 13); he even opened the show.

Kylie Jenner and Tyga had the best seats in the house at the Philipp Plein show in NYC yesterday, as they were seated right next to Madonna!

You might not remember the name Jeremy Meeks, but you probably remember the face. His New York Fashion Week moment comes a day after he posted a photo to Instagram of himself posing shirtless with show stylist Carine Roitfeld.

Since his release, Meeks has starred in major ad campaigns for brands including Givenchy, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Tom Ford, and Hugo Boss. Models Sofia Richie and Anwar Hadid also walked in the show!

He signed a modeling contract behind bars and continued to keep fit, vowing to turn his life around for his wife and three children.
