Move over “Hot Felon.”
Another model known as “Prison Bae” is taking the fashion world by storm after being discovered by a viral mug shot.
Mekhi Alante Lucky, who walked at Saturday night’s Philipp Plein show, is notable for his one blue eye and one brown eye, the mesmerizing result of a medical condition called heterochromiairidum.
“People stare at me all the time,” Lucky told The Post backstage at the Plein show. “They say, ‘You’re beautiful.’ I’m not cocky about it, though.”
Last August, St. Claire Modeling signed the 5-foot-10 North Carolina native with a 28-inch waist to its special bookings board. A few weeks later, Lucky made his debut on the Helmut Lang catwalk. He recently shot a cover for Arena Homme+ and contributed to Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book.
“I look for people with stand-out traits,” said Demanti O’Bryant, founder of the New York- and Atlanta-based agency, which also represents a female model with the same genetic condition.
“Mekhi naturally gets it. He feels comfortable and moves well in front of the camera.”
Lucky’s rap sheet lists five charges from April to December 2016: felony larceny of motor vehicle, misdemeanor breaking or entering, misdemeanor assault on a female and two misdemeanor probation violations.
He stayed out of trouble last year and is focusing on his new career.
“I really enjoy it,” he said. “I got a wonderful walk and I didn’t even have to work on it.”
Lucky currently lives in Raleigh, NC, where he has a girlfriend, Tionna, and a 7-month-old baby girl named Brooke.
But his relationship might be on the rocks.
“We’re not together right now, now that I think of it,” he said. “She called me the B-word over the phone the other day.”
In 2017, “Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks made a splash at New York Fashion Week after being released from federal prison on a weapons charge.
