Dominika Peczynski (born September 20, 1970[1]) is a Polish-Swedish singer, model and television host.

Early life[edit]

Dominika Maria Peczynski was born September 20, 1970 in Warsaw, Poland, to Russian Jewish mother Tina and Polish father. She lived in Poland until she was seven years old and moved to Stockholm. She had traveled to several countries long before her famous Dominika's Planet. After coming to Stockholm she joined one of the model agencies. For a long time she lived in Prague.

Army of Lovers[edit]

She joined the Swedish pop music group Army of Lovers in 1992, making her debut with the group with Hasta Mañana, a cover of the ABBA song. Peczynski already knew the other members of Army of Lovers; Michaela Dornonville de la Cour and Camilla Henemark worked for the same modelling agency, she had been at school with Jean-Pierre Barda and had previously had a relationship with Alexander Bard.

Post Army of Lovers[edit]

Since the Army of Lovers split, she has worked as a TV presenter for a number of different Swedish and overseas shows, including the Swedish version of Temptation Island and her own programme, Dominika's Planet, which aired in the UK. In 1998 she posed for the adult magazine Playboy.

Since 2002 she has been running a public relations company.[2]

In 2005 a new music project called Nouveau Riche was launched, featuring Peczynski and Ulrich Bermsjö. Their debut single "Oh Lord" was released in November 2005. Following the release of their second single "Hardcore Life", Peczynski left the band. After several weeks, however, she was replaced by another female singer and her contributions to the band have been removed from all subsequent releases and official marketing tools.

Peczynski is since 2011 a member of the pop group Happy Hoes.

Personal life[edit]

Peczynski has two children: daughter Hannah Sabina Edna Bari (born August 1, 2000) with Claes Bari,[3] and son Harry Bartal (born August 8, 2011, via C-section) with Yoav Bartal.[4]
