'Hot mugshot guy' made his catwalk debut at NY Fashion Week and we cannot get enough.

It was way back in 2014 when oddly attractive criminal Jeremy Meeks was arrested for gun possession.

He served 27 months in prison, and now he’s serving up runway realness courtesy of New York Fashion Week.

Yup, Hot Mugshot Guy, aka Jeremy Meeks, has come full circle since his days as “one of the most violent criminals in the Stockton area,” (police words, not mine) – now walking for the likes of Philipp Plein for the 2017 NYFW.

The star-studded audience included Kylie Jenner, Paris Hilton and Madonna; no doubt enjoying the view of Meek’s washboard stomach and trademark tattoos.

I mean, underneath all that snow gear, you know?

Meeks has gained plenty of attention this fashion week, even posting a shot snuggling up to former editor of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld.

It was great meeting you and your team @carineroitfeld I so look forward to seeing you soon.

Since his release, Meeks has been on the straight and narrow, pursuing a modelling career and spending time with his partner and kids.

We don’t know about you, but we’re more than happy to see as much of Meeks as possible in the future.

Because hey – what’s the difference between a billboard and a viral mugshot, anyway?
