Prison Bae just made his New York Fashion Week debut

Jeremy Meeks, AKA Prison Bae – the sexy felon that went viral when his outrageously hot mugshot was released in 2014 – has finally made his New York Fashion Week debut.

He used to run from the law, but now the ridiculously good-looking American is on the runway, giving his best Blue Steel as he walked for Philipp Plein on Tuesday.

Zoolander would be proud.

But even better than his high-fashion debut on the catwalk was before the show, when the 33-year-old, ex-con went shirtless for the practice run.


Hopefully the only authorities Jeremy might get in trouble with these days are the fashion police, although he’s got a pretty heavy past: he’s spent time in prison twice, once for grand theft and another time for gun possession.

But the blue-eyed, high cheek-boned babe turned his life around after his mugshot went viral on Facebook, and is now signed to White Cross Model Management. He’s also quickly found himself rubbing shoulders with fashion elite, and was cuddling up to Carine Roitfeld recently.

From the big house to the world’s biggest fashion houses. You could not make this up.

If you’re happy to forget about Jeremy’s gangster past and are hoping he’s single, sorry ladies, but no. On Valentine’s Day he posted a sweet message to his girlfriend.

He’s also a dad to seven-year-old Jeremy Jr.

We're not ones to reward bad behaviour, but the guy has done his time, K? And aren't prisons supposed to be about rehabilitation more than anything? And we can't go past a good story that starts off tragically and ends on a positive note, right?
