'Prison Bae' Jeremy Meeks Makes NYFW Debut
He captured all our eyes with his model-worthy mugshot that went viral a few years ago, but now the man labelled as 'Prison Bae' has put those stunning features to good use appearing on the runway at New York Fashion Week!
The ex-felon is now signed to Blaze Modelling agency after being released from prison for weapon charges. Now aged 33, Jeremy is trying his hand in the world of fashion, modelling for German designer Philipp Plein. Meeks modelled a number of looks including a black puffy jacket with a heavy fur trim, black zip up bomber jacket and matching black pants.
When asked why he put the ex-con in the show for New York Fashion Week, Plein said "we’re all bad boys; I’m a bad boy.”.
The Californian model took to his Instagram page to thank Plein for having him in the show saying "Big thanks to @philippplein78 for believing in me... Last night was epic !!!"
