Jeremy Meeks, also known as the "hot felon" when his mugshot went viral, previous year, became instantly known for his piercing blue eyes and chiseled cheekbones.

Fast-forward three years and he's made his New York Fashion Week debut on the runway for Philipp Plein.

Last season's catwalk cameo, Paris Hilton sat front row this time around with none other than Madonna, Kylie Jenner, and Tiffany Trump.

"Big thanks to @philippplein78 for believing in me". Meeks wrote on Instagram Tuesday.

While behind bars on weapons charges, Meeks signed with talent agency White Cross Management, who has shepherded his fledgling career following his release from prison in March 2016. Meeks is married with three children and resides in California.

"I'm overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead".
