While the felon with the “Gucci” face tat momentarily amused the internet, no one can forget the OG criminal that stole our hearts: Jeremy Meeks AKA Hot Mugshot Guy. His piercing blue eyes and chiseled features ignited a thirst in all of us when he was arrested last June for gun and gang related charges, and while it isn’t typically PC to be excited about the release of a criminal, the rules do not apply to someone this attractive, right?
After the internet fell in love with Meeks, he landed a modelling contract at White Cross Management in LA. According to his manager, Jim Jordan (who greeted Meeks along with the ex-con’s wife and three children when he was released yesterday from Mendota Federal Correctional Institution in Northern California) the world’s “top five designers” have expressed interest in working with Meeks. While he didn’t say whom, one can hazard to guess any brand from Balmain to Balenciaga would be eager to hitch their wagon to that publicity train.
Plus, they already know he’s photogenic.
