Ingūna Butāne (born February 24, 1986), sometimes simply known as Inguna, is a Latvian model.

Butāne was discovered when a contest was held in Latvia, where she met agents from Women Management in Milan, Italy, but decided to finish her degree of Interior Design. She then went to Moscow, Russia, and subsequently to New York, USA, to start her career.[2]

She has been in ad campaigns for Armani Jeans, Bergdorf Goodman, Dolce & Gabbana, L'Oréal, Marc (a second line of Marc Jacobs), and Neiman Marcus. Her runway work includes Fendi, Alexander McQueen, Viktor and Rolf, Yohji Yamamoto, Alice Roi, Baby Phat, Belstaff, Gucci, Versace, and Oscar de la Renta. She is currently signed with Mother New York.

Currently[when?] she is the face of Escada and Bottega Veneta, along with models Julia Dunstall and Chanel Iman.

She walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2005, 2007 and 2008.

She played the violin when she was young, and loves to listen to classical music.[2]
