”Hot Convict” Jeremy Meeks is making the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival

The model, who was discovered after the Stockton police department posted his mugshot to Facebook, was released from prison in March 2016 and has had a skyrocketing modeling career ever since.

Meeks attended the amfAR gala on Thursday night. Dressed in all black with diamond skulls on his loafers, he smoldered on the red carpet before mingling with stars.

Just a few months ago, Meeks walked for Plein at New York Fashion Week. We hope we’ll be seeing a lot more of him around the globe.
