From mug shot to headshot: Man’s booking picture lands him modeling career

By Lee Moran,

His striking mug shot has earned him a career on the catwalk.

Mekhi Alante Lucky of North Carolina has signed with St. Claire Modeling after a photograph stemming from a 2016 arrest went viral, per multiple reports.

The 20-year-old dazzled internet users with his different-colored eyes, which are caused by the rare genetic condition heterochromia, per Yahoo News.

“I instantly knew that he was perfect for St. Claire Modeling,” the agency’s manager, Damiana O’Bryant, told BuzzFeed on Thursday. She hopes to bring Lucky to New York Fashion Week in February.
