Born in Sollentuna, Sweden on March 27, 1985 to Thomas and Camila, Caroline Winberg (pronounced Vin-berg) is a fashion model.
She was a tomboy growing up and dreamed of becoming a professional soccer player. She was en route to a play a match when she was discovered by a talent scout and suggested she consider a career in modeling. Caroline said that she thought at first the scout was joking.
A year later at the age of 16, Caroline Winberg booked local gigs and promotional spots for regional companies. Soon after, she caught the eye of booking agencies, including Women Model Management, Why Not Milan and Dominique Brussels and landed gigs in high-profile campaigns for names like Valentino, Versace and Armani.
Caroline moved to New York and subsequently landed on the covers of Flair, Elle, Vogue and Harpers Bazaar. She also appeared in ad campaigns for D&G, Tommy Hilfiger, Rolex and Neiman Marcus, among others.
Caroline was rumored to have dated Mick Jagger, who reportedly began calling Caroline. Her parents publicly pleaded with Mick to leave their daughter alone. Mick has denied the claims.
Caroline Winberg is probably most famous for her appearances in the Victorias Secret Fashion Show from 2005-2008. She called it a dream job. When asked what her secret is to beautiful hair and skin, she said, My secret is to have someone else do my hair and makeup for me, especially my hair. Its thin, so I usually keep it in a ponytail with treatment in it (bellasugar.com).
