For this week’s Model Behavior post, I decided to feature someone who’s making serious money. Meet Arthur Kuklov who’s currently ranked No. 8 on models.com list of top male moneymakers. Since making his debut in 2008, the Russian male model has been prominently featured in fashion editorials, ad campaigns and on major runways around the world. He’s one of the few models to land a cover for both Details and GQ– a rarity in the male model industry.
The 29-year-old was born in Siberia and later immigrated to the US. In 2005, he graduated from St. Francis College in Brooklyn, New York with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Marketing. Kulkov began his modeling career when a model scout spotted him playing soccer.
To list out Arthur’s fashion credits would take forever. A few highlights include ad campaigns for Banana Republic, Dolce & Gabbana, Lacoste, Esprit and Tommy Hilfiger. He’s so popular with the latter that he’s become a permanent fixture with the company since 2011.
Recently, the Russian hottie has dabble in acting. He made his debut in a short film titled The Main Event in America. He plays a boxer named Phonix Mostlyn who struggles between pursuing his dream or his love for a man. Yuppers, he plays a homo in it. There’s a hot scene where he’s pleasuring himself. WOOF. I’ve embedded the film after all the photos. Hope you enjoy this week’s Model Behavior.
