  1. Winberg began her 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, 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.

    She appeared in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.
