In case you were wondering what happened to "Hot Felon" Jeremy Meeks' modeling career in the year since he was released from prison, he just made his runway debut at this season's New York Fashion Week. Ahead of the show, Plein borrowed President Trump's controversial slogan "Make America Great Again", using the hashtag #LetsMakeNYFWgreatAgain on Instagram.

Among them were Jeremy Meeks (also known as the "Hot Mugshot Guy" who became an Internet sensation), New England Patriots' wide receiver Danny Amendola (fresh off his Super Bowl win), Sofia Richie, top-hatted and masked graffiti artist Alec Monopoly, photographer Sebastian Faena and rappers Young Thug, Desiigner and Fetty Wap.

On Monday, Meeks hit the runway donned in a black shirt, black trousers, black boot and a black puffer coat with a fur hood.

"Big thanks to @philippplein78 for believing in me".

Meeks shot to fame when his mugshot went viral after being posted on a California police department's Facebook page in 2014.

He was handed a 27-month jail term in 2015 after being charged with illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity. This iconic photo will be celebrating it's third anniversary in June. He served two years in prison and was released last March.
