Designers get political at New York Fashion Week

He had nicknames like "Hot Mugshot Guy", "Hot Convict" and "Prison Bae". Jeremy Meeks, the blue-eyed man whose Stockton Police Department mugshot went viral in 2014, is among the worthy few, having officially gone from orange jumpsuit to designer threads for Philipp Plein's NYFW presentation this week. People swooned over the booking photo so much that it eventually lead to multiple modeling offers as well as the enviable nickname "Hot Felon". Just take a look at this photo taken by author and former WSJ fashion columnist Christina Brinkley from yesterday's Philipp Plein runway show at the New York Public Library.

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.

"Nobody wants to sit next to Tiffany Trump at Philipp Plein, so they moved and the seats by her are empty", she wrote.

But when he was released two years later, Meeks returned to his wife (sorry if you were holding out hope) and three kids. "Last night was epic!" The couple celebrated their 8th wedding anniversary six weeks ago.
