Landing a dedicated issue of L’Officiel Hommes is a significant career highlight in the life of a model, but unfortunately for Arthur Sales, this honor is tainted by controversy. In one of the many editorials photographed by Milan Vukmirovic, dark makeup is applied to Arthur as well as an afro. After a whirlwind of a year for female models undergoing blackface with less than favorable reactions, it is surprising to say the least that L’Officiel Hommes would take a risk and charter this territory.
