Caroline Winberg (born March 27, 1985) is a Swedish supermodel.

Early life

Caroline Winberg was born in Sollentuna, Sweden as the daughter of Thomas and Camila. Winberg 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 Winberg always harbored dreams of becoming a professional soccer player, the exotic and exciting world of modeling proved to be an irresistible force.

During high school years at Rudbecks Gymnasium Winberg became best friend and classmate with Charlotte Lindström also a later model, Lindström was sentenced to prison in Australia for the 2007 Spaliviero hitman case. With Caroline commenting "She was blinded by love". The two models kept in contact after graduation.

Career

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.Fact|date=March 2007 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, Winberg 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 she soon found herself working high-profile campaigns for notable names such as Valentino, Versace and Armani.
