‘The Most Handsome Felon of the US’ Walks at the New York Fashion Week
Jeremy Meeks from the US, a former inmate, known as ‘the most handsome felon in the US’, took part in the fashion show during New York Fashion Week: he presented the new collection of Philipp Plein. Dazed writes that the event held in the New York Public Library was attended by many celebrities, including Madonna, Paris Hilton, and Kylie Jenner.
Meeks became famous several years ago, when Stockton Police Department (California) arrested him for illegal possession of firearms and posted his mugshot on Facebook. The photograph quickly went viral and had hundreds of thousands likes, this making Meeks an Internet celebrity.
He spent over 27 months in jail and was released only in March last year. According to his manager, Jim Jordan, many modeling agencies offered Meeks to work for them.
