Dmitriy Tanner made his debut appearance on the Givenchy and Calvin Klein catwalks during the Fall 2011 men’s fashion season.
In 2012, Tanner walked twice again on Calvin Klein runway shows, and also modeled for Versace. Though he had almost no experience as a runway model, Calvin Klein gave him the honor of opening and closing the brand's Spring 2012 show.
Tanner’s first ad campaign was for Calvin Klein, modeling for the brand's Fall 2011 collection. In 2012, he was captured three times by iconic fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for different advertising campaigns: Versace, Diesel, and Dsquared2.
Other than being one of the world's most sexy male models, Tanner is also a marine at the Unites States Marine Corps (USMC).
