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.
Since The Bible scored heavenly ratings for The History Channel, I thought I’d feature one of its stars. The mini-series combined with the network’s other new offering, Vikings, trumped everything on the major networks Sunday night. I’m sure Donald Trump isn’t happy that his so-called All-Stars were beat by Jesus and his crew ;) Coincidentally enough, both were from Mark Burnett. The über producer collaborated with his wife Roma Downey (Touched By An Angel) on the biblical program.
If you watched the first part, you probably were smitten by the actor who played Adam of Adam and Eve fame. He was played by male model Paul Knops. Not much is known about this Brit, but he is one good-looking man. Love his thick eyebrows. Check out this carpenter turned model’s portfolio below. Hope you enjoy this week’s Model Behavior selection.
I’m not even going to sugarcoat why I chose this week’s Model Behavior stud. After weeks of featuring male models from high fashion, I was in the mood for some who primarily poses in underwear and swimwear. When you have a body like this, it’s his duty to the gay community to show it off. The man is sex on wheels.
Meet Kirill Dowidoff a model/actor from Moscow, Russia. I first noticed this buff 21-year-old hottie in an ad campaign for ES Collection. He’s quickly gaining a following and I have no doubt he’ll be fronting a major underwear brand in the near future. Most likely in briefs since he says he’s a brief man.
Even though I think he’s absolute perfection, Dowidoff doesn’t think so. If he could change a body part, it would be his ears. LOL. I guess we all have a cross to bear ;) Check out photos of Kirill below snapped by photographers Ruslan Elquest, Alex Bago, Artem Subbotin and many more.
As promised, here’s my second Model Behavior post of the day. If blond cutie Connor Hill wasn’t your thing, then I think this manly dark-haired stud will make you tingle in all the right spots. In addition to his toned body and gorgeous eyes, a main reason I picked him was due to his ever-changing hair. I love a man not afraid to experiment with his look. He sorta reminds me of Vanderpump Rules‘ Jax Taylor.
Not to be confused with the professional NHL player, this Éric Bélanger does all his best work off the ice. That said, he’s also Canadian like the other Belanger which means he’s probably ice skated a time or two in his life. Eric was born in Saskatchewan in 1985. The 6’1″ stunner didn’t begin his modeling career until he was discovered while working in the movie industry in Los Angeles.
A few highlights of his career include walking for Armani, Benetton, Energie, Mavi Jeans and DSquared2. He’s represented by Red (New York), Select (London), MGM (Paris), Fashion (Italy), Kult (Hamburg), and Scoop (Copenhagen). Eric has appeared in numerous fashion editorials, including one I recently shared for Dorian magazine. Check out Eric’s other photos from his portfolio below.
Apologies for the day late Model Behavior post. I was feeling under the weather yesterday, as you can tell from my sole post published. To make up for the lack of eye candy on Tuesday, I thought I’d double up on the gratuitous shirtless pics today. Hopefully, you enjoy the first featured model. I’m sure all you blond lovers will.
Meet Connor Hill. This cutie with his captivating eyes is relatively new to the modeling game. So new in fact, I could barely find anything in terms of biographical information about him. All I was able to scrounge up was his representation by David Todd Model Management and Wilhelmina Models. He appeared on the latter’s blog which showed off his test shoot with photographer Leo Corredor. Hill has also been featured as a hottie on DNA’s blog. Check out this tasty piece of young (and legal) meat below. Stay tuned for my other featured model which will be posted shortly.
If you watched the Baltimore Ravens defeat the San Francisco 49ers, you might’ve caught a glimpse of Matthew Terry during one of the commercials. The Pennsylvania-born model appeared in Calvin Klein’s first ever Super Bowl ad. If you’re like many women, gay men and closeted straights (LOL), you undoubtedly swooned over his defined physique. Get to know the stud behind the abs.
Terry first started modeling after his mother submitted photos for the 2011 V MAN model search. Not only did he score a coveted cover for the publication, but he also snagged a modeling contract with Ford Agency. Though he’s relatively new to the fashion industry, Matthew has made a big name for himself. In addition to becoming the face (and body) of Calvin Klein underwear, he’s worked with Versace and DKNY. His editorial credits include Interview, Out, Essential Homme, Vogue Hommes Japan and V Man. Currently he’s ranked within the Top 25 on models.com. Check out a sample of Terry’s portfolio below including plenty of underwear pics… in Calvin Klein of course.
If you’ve been following my Model Behavior posts this year, you’ve probably noticed I’m trying to mix things up more frequently. I’ve taken all your feedback to heart. Hope you enjoy this week’s selection. He’s widely regarded as the first Asian male supermodel. Meet Godfrey Gao.
This 28-year-old stunner is of Taiwanese and Malaysian descent but calls Vancouver home. His family moved to Canada at the age of nine. Godfrey has the distinction of being the first Asian face for Louis Vuitton Men. With many high fashion brands recording soaring profits in Asia Pacific, it only makes sense Asian models are being brought to the forefront. There are even reports that Chinese men are spending more on luxury goods than their female counterparts.
In addition to strutting out his hotness for fashion photographers, Gao also dabbles in acting. He has a long list of credits, mostly on Taiwenese television and cinema. Check out this tall drink of water below. He’s got his “blue steel” look down pack.
Hope you enjoy photos of this week’s Model Behavior selection, because that’s all you’re going to get. As hard as I tried, I could barely uncover any biographical information info on Nic Pletts. All I could discover was he’s represented by Boss Model Management in South Africa, which leads me to believe he’s South African??? In the end, all that matters is that he’s one fine looking man. Ladies and homos, I present to you Mr. Nic Pletts.
Despite the lack of background or modeling credits, I just had to feature him in all his shirtless glory for all my Model Behavior followers. There’s just something about him that I couldn’t resist. I’m sure you’ll agree with me when you check out his photos below. Enjoy. PS. He also has a very hot sexy brother named Campbell. I’ve included a shot of him as well at the very end.
