#Jeremy Meeks. Convicted felon. And now – runway star.

New York Fashion Week isn't simply getting political. It's also getting legal. Since there is nothing unlawful about sending a hot ex-inmate down the catwalk. Which is just as well, since the whole of #New york fashion week are falling for the petty criminal's pouty lips and smoldering eyes.

Petty theft and obstructing justice

Meeks rose to fame after his handsome mug shot was posted on Stockton Police Department's Facebook page. Arrested and charged for 'street terrorism' as well as resisting or obstructing justice, #Meeks became an Internet sensation when his mug shot went viral.

It racked up 75,000 likes and thousands of comments. He had already served a nearly ten-year sentence for grand theft.

Walking the walk

The 33-year-old blue-eyed hunk walked in designer Philipp Plein's show on Monday, hitting the runway in a dark pants and a black fur-trimmed puffer coat.

He stared at the cameras with his famous bright blue eyes – as women from #downtown to the Upper East Side swooned in joy.
