From the tundra in Siberia to the runways in New York, Paris and Milan. Arthur Kulkov was scouted in 2008 and, in contrast to most models who have to struggle for at least a couple of weeks before launching successful careers, he reached instant fame in the industry. During his first season – fall 2008 – he booked several big campaigns before he had walked a single show. He went on from there to getting several features in prominent international magazines like GQ and Details. 

Eight years after his breakout season, Arthur Kulkov’s success has stabilized at a high level. Now, MODELS.com ranks him as one of the industry’s sexiest, best-paid and most iconic male models – and his versatility keeps him in the male modeling top layer. 

While shooting for H&M in Stockholm, we asked the Russian hunk to fill out our Top Model Secrets questionnaire. Keep scrolling or swiping to get to know him better.
