Caroline Winberg Biography 1985-
Caroline Winberg was born on March 27, 1985, in Sollentuna, Sweden. The daughter of Thomas and Camila, Caroline enjoyed a relatively normal childhood and was even something of a tomboy in her youth. In fact, it was en route to soccer training that a scout spotted the 15-year-old teenager and suggested that she consider a career in modeling. Though Caroline always harbored dreams of becoming a professional soccer player, the exotic and exciting world of modeling proved to be an irresistible force.
A year later, Caroline was booking local gigs and appearing in promotional spots for regional companies. It wasn’t long before she caught the eye of several well-known booking agencies — including Women Model Management, Why Not Milan and Dominique Brussels — and the up-and-coming model soon found herself working high-profile campaigns for notable names such as Valentino, Versace and Armani. Caroline’s burgeoning fame within the modeling industry quickly necessitated a move to New York City, where she began establishing herself as one of the hottest imports around.
By the time she was just 17, Caroline joined the ranks of some of the more well-known figures within the industry and she consequently became an exceedingly familiar face amongst those who follow the fashion scene. One such follower turned out to be none other than Mick Jagger, who reportedly began calling Caroline in the hopes of arranging a meeting. Caroline’s parents publicly pleaded with Mick to leave their daughter alone, and the story soon became a worldwide news item. Mick has repeatedly denied the claims.
With that unpleasant mess behind her, Caroline devoted herself full time to her career, taking on virtually every campaign and fashion show offered to her. She has additionally graced the cover of several well-known magazines, including Flair (Italy), Elle (Sweden), Vogue (Germany), and Harper’s Bazaar (Russia), and has appeared in advertisements for companies such as Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger and Rolex.
In her downtime, she enjoys reading, taking pictures and just hanging out in her local coffee shop. Though she currently has no plans to leave the business, Caroline hopes to eventually have children and settle down in her homeland of Sweden.
