Hi! The two exchanged a meaningful glance

At the time, Meeks was arrested for felony weapon charges and police in Stockton, Calif. thought they were just informing the public of their work.

"Hot mug shot guy", Jeremy Meeks, has made his New York Fashion Week runway debut.

Plein, a German designer, said he put Meeks in the fashion show despite his criminal record because "we're all bad boys; I'm a bad boy".

Meeks, 33, reportedly told television stations he was a gang member and had a gun in the trunk of his vehicle when he was arrested in 2014.

Anyways, his name was Jeremy Meeks and he ended up being sentenced to two years in prison for gun possession.

Since his release, Meeks has starred in major ad campaigns for brands including Givenchy, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Tom Ford, and Hugo Boss.

Last week, on his Instagram page, Meeks shared a photo of himself with Carine Roitfield that quickly went viral.

Meeks popped up again on Sunday in NY when he posted a photo of himself with Carine Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris.

Madonna was accompanied by photographer Steven Klein and joined in the crowd by Kylie Jenner, Tiffany Trump (Secret Service in tow) and Paris Hilton.

He wasn't the only famous face on the runway, with rappers Young Thug, Desiigner and Fetty Wap also walking.

During his NYFW debut, Meeks had some pretty heavy hitters following him on the runway. Meeks is married with three children and resides in California. He had a record for auto theft and has served time in both state and federal prisons, so why put him in a fashion show?
