The convicted felon whose prison mugshot launched a thousand memes is now a successful high fashion model. Jeremy Meeks became an overnight sensation when his prison mugshot went viral on Facebook in 2014. His piercing blue eyes and chiseled manly features made women swoon and forget their marriage vows.
Before he was released from prison in 2016, Meeks signed a modeling contract with white Cross Management. He made his NY Fashion Week debut walking for Philipp Plein International on Tuesday.
Meeks put his criminal lifestyle behind him following his prison stint. He used his modeling earnings to purchase a mini mansion for his family and he drives a brand new Maserati sports car.
Meeks is a big hit with fans on the streets of New York.
Well since everyone tagged me in all the articles about how he slayed his debut in fashion week, I just wanted to let you all know that Jeremy Meeks is not just a gorgeous face and body with sexy tattoos. When I stopped him on the street and asked for a picture, he was also incredibly kind, humble and gracious. This is a man that knows he's been blessed with a second chance and is not wasting it. Even his manager was a really nice guy and joked about how the wind was blowing during the picture and that I looked like a model also. (And who am I? Just a fan on the street…) Every successful person needed a little luck and it's inspiring to see a person getting a second chance in something he will excel in and I wish Jeremy all the best! #jeremymeeks #prisonbae #hotfelon #secondchances #iwinvalentinesday
