This designer is fighting anti-LGBT violence by giving transgender models their own runway and it’s fabulous.

And we need this fashion show here in the states, because due to the hate crime rate the US is one of the most dangerous countries for the LGBTQ community.

It feels like we have a long way to go before the LGBT community can be seen as equal individuals in America.

Hot Mugshot Guy Jeremy Meeks makes his catwalk debut for Philipp Plein

Jeremy Meeks became an internet sensation back in 2014 when his police mugshot went viral.

Fast-forward three years and he’s made his New York Fashion Week debut on the runway for Philipp Plein.

The 33-year-old was arrested in February 2014 and sentenced to 27 months in prison for possessing an illegal firearm but, after his photo was shared on Facebook, he gained a huge following.

Thousands of swooning replies and hashtags later, the ex-convict signed a modelling contract before being released from prison and is now represented by London model management agency SUPA.

Alternative fashion problems: Black lipstick

•Forgetting it’s on your lips and then smudging it if you touch your mouth.

•It’s even harder to fix, especially in a place where you can’t get out makeup remover and clean it up.

•Even worse, not having makeup remover to help fix it up.

•It smudges easily and might make you look like you have a beard (unless you’re a guy, in which case good for you for breaking gender roles).

•It stains easier than other lipsticks

•Comments from family members (usually older ones).

•Comments from family friends (usually older ones)

•Comments from your doctor (yes, this happened)

•People who stare in horror (okay, this is actually kinda funny because it’s an easy way to spot the judgmental people. It’s even funnier if you’re doing something nice like volunteering because it says “hey, this weirdo is being less of a jerk than you.”

•People (usually boys between the ages of 12-20) who just scream “GOTH” or “EMO”

•Those creepy catcalls about where they’d like the lipstick to stain.

•Kids who say to their parents, “I want that lipstick!” And their parents who give you the, “You corrupted my child,” look. (Okay, half of this one is adorable.)

•Being afraid to use any sort of cup, spoon, or mug because you don’t want it to stain; especially at a restaurant or cafe.

•Those people who try to flirt with you (and fail) by giving shitty pet names based off your lipstick.


But hey, it’s all totally worth it, cause if you can pull it off, it looks f*ckinf awesome.
