Remember Jeremy Meeks? He was dubbed the "Hot Felon" after his stunning mugshot went viral in 2014.

Since being released from prison last year, (he was arrested on a felony weapons charge), Meeks is ditching a life of crime for something more fabulous: modeling!

The handsome former inmate traded his orange jumpsuit for high fashion, walking the runway for Philipp Plein at New York Fashion Week Monday night, Time magazine points out. Meeks strutted his stuff, walking by a front row that included Madonna, Kylie Jenner, Paris Hilton and rapper Young Thug.

Meeks, who blew up on Instagram and has more than 805,000 followers, later posted a picture with French fashion icon Carine Roitfeld. It looks like he's going to have a long career ahead of him.

Check out some pics of Meeks, along with a video of his runway debut, below.
