Dragana Šarić, better known by her stage name Bebi Dol or Baby Doll, is a Serbian singer and performer.

As the daughter of jazz musician Milenko Šarić, Dragana had early exposure to music. She started her career in the late 1970s in the band Tarkus. During the late 1979, she made her first studio recordings as a guest vocalist on the Igra Staklenih Perli album Vrt svetlosti (Garden of Light), released in 1980. In 1981, with the guitarist Goran Vejvoda and the bass guitarist Ivan Vdović, she formed the short-lasting band Annoda Rouge.

In 1981, she released her debut single "Mustafa" under her new persona Baby Doll; two years later, she released her first solo album, Ruže i krv (Roses and Blood). She wrote all the songs on the album, except "Sinu Sunca i bratu Meseca" ("To the Son of the Sun and brother of the Moon"), a cover of 17th century traditional song, featuring recordings of Lauren Bacall's and Humphrey Bogart's dialogues, and "Lapis Lazzuli", a cover of Angelo Branduardi song.

After releasing the album, she spent two years in Egypt for a singing arrangement; when she returned, she released the 12" single How Good Not to Lovein cooperation with Saša Habić. During the same year, she won the first place at the MESAM Festival, with the song "Inšalah" (transliteration for "Insha'Allah"), again inspired by Middle-Eastern music.

After multiple attempts, she finally represented Yugoslavia at the Eurovision Song Contest 1991 with the song Brazil, which came second-to-last with one point from Malta. Since then, she released albums, made guest appearances in different songs, and participated in the Serbian version of Your Face Sounds Familiar..., in which she placed last.
