Marija Vujović (Montenegrin Cyrillic: Марија Вујовић, pronounced [mǎrija ʋûːjɔʋitɕ]) (born 19 May 1984 in Titograd, Yugoslavia, now Podgorica, Montenegro) is a Montenegrin model. She was discovered by Elite Model Management in her home town after friends talked her into participating and shot to fame at the Dries Van Noten show in Paris in 2002. She has been featured in campaigns for a Dolce & Gabbana fragrance and Yves Saint Laurent's Rive Gauche. In 2006, Dolce & Gabbana cast Vujović in their Light Blue fragrance adverts that were shot by photographer Mario Testino in Capri. The commercial received 11 million online views, and according to British researchers, is among the sexiest television adverts ever made. Vujović was photographed by Steven Meisel for the Dolce & Gabbana campaign, by Mert & Marcus for Bulgari Eyewear and by Michael Thompson for RMK. She has also walked the catwalk for designers such as Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, and Gucci. Vujović walked in both the 2005 and 2007 Victoria's Secret fashion shows. Marija is the niece of the President of Montenegro, Filip Vujanović. She admires music and the stage: she studied classical piano for seven years at the Conservatory and has also taken acting lessons.
