She was born in Zagreb, Croatia into an upper-middle class household. She was studying to be a lawyer with the support of her parents, a doctor and an economist respectively, when she chose to become a model after winning the 1996 Croatian Elite "Look of the Year" modeling competition, placing third at the world pageant.
While working in Los Angeles in 1999, she was cast in Ricky Martin's hit music video, Livin' La Vida Loca. That same year, she released her debut single as a singer, but due to its lack of success, an album was never produced. She was also selected by Jim Carrey as the female lead to a sequel for the 1994 film The Mask, but negotiations fell through and Carrey eventually left the project. She has since appeared on numerous international covers of men's magazines like Maxim.
After a stint in the United States, she moved to Italy and became well-known there, continuing her modeling career and working as a television correspondent.
