Biography

Caroline Winberg was born in Sollentuna, Sweden as the daughter of Thomas and Camila. Caroline enjoyed a relatively normal childhood and was 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.

Winberg began her modeling modeling career at age sixteen. At seventeen she gained sudden fame, not for appearing in a well-known campaign or fashion show, but for a scandal involving herself and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. She claimed that the singer, who was 59 at the time, had been harassing her with phone calls after seeing her on the runway. Her parents, Thomas and Camila, even asked Jagger to leave their daughter in peace. The singer denied any such phone calls.

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.

She has been in campaigns for Valentino, D&G, Tommy Hifiger, Adidas by Stella Mcartney, Rolex, Chloé, Versace, Victoria's Secret and Neiman Marcus and has graced the covers of Italian Vogue, Russian Vogue, and (twice) German Vogue.

She currently lives in New York and is friends with fellow models Marija Vujovic, Gemma Ward and Lily Cole.
