Lidija Vera Manić (born c. 1953) is a beauty pageant titleholder who became the first woman from Yugoslavia to win a major international title after being crowned Miss International 1975 in Motobu, Japan.[1]

Miss International[edit]

She was succeeded by French delegate Sophie Perin as Miss International in 1976. Incidentally, Perin and Manić were delegates of their respective countries in the 1975 Miss Universe pageant held in San Salvador, El Salvador.

Since Yugoslavia has since disintegrated into several countries, Manić remains as the only winner of a major beauty pageant from Yugoslavia, beside Saša Zajc, Miss Europe 1969.
