From Perp Walk To Catwalk: Jeremy Meeks Goes From Jailhouse To NYFW

(SL) – Everyone deserves a second chance and as Jeremy Weeks told reporters this could be his fourth or eighth. Let’s just hope he does right by it this time.

With his body marked up like the subway in Harlem, Meeks’ tats are the only reminder of his past life of crime and gang activity.

Made ‘famous’ if you will from his mugshot that left most people mesmerized by his piercing blue eyes, Meeks was quickly nicknamed ‘Prison Bae’ or ‘Hot Felon’ and before he could be released, Jeremy had already signed with an agent.

Just 11 months after his release, Jeremy joined the modeling world’s elite for New York Fashion Week where he walked during the Philipp Plein Show.

I hope his doesn’t get caught up in ‘Hollywood’. Despite his criminal background, Meeks has 2 sons with his wife of 8 years. Stay on track Mr. Meeks!

THE BLACK MIRROR: Deddeh Howard Puts The Spotlight On Fashion’s Diversity Problem

(SL) – As reported by USA Today, The Liberian-born model-blogger banded together with photographer Raffael Dickreuter to launch “Black Mirror,” a project that recreates high-profile ad campaigns by brands including Chanel, Calvin Klein, Guess, Gucci, David Yurman, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana to highlight the dearth of women of color represented in fashion and the media.

In an emailed statement to USA TODAY, Howard cites the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as the most recent example of underrepresentation, noting, “you could see the same pattern you can see at New York Fashion Week or any other famous fashion event: Black girls are almost invisible. There is the odd one here and there, but it always feels like an afterthought.”

Or, a performance of diversity as opposed to actual inclusion.

For Howard, who says she’s been turned away by modeling agencies that “already have a black model,” the industry’s routine devaluation of women of color is “bizarre.” “What do you mean you already have 2-4 black models that looks (sic) like me?” Did you say the same thing to the 50-100 white models you already have?”
