Caroline Trentini (born July 6, 1987), also known as Carol Trentini, is a Brazilian fashion model.

Early life[edit]

Trentini was born on July 6, 1987 in Panambi, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.[2] Trentini is the youngest daughter of Lourdes and Jacó Trentini, who died when she was one year old.[2] Her older sisters are Franciele and Élen.[3] Although having never worked before, Lourdes got a job as a public employee when Jacó died and raised her daughters single-handedly.

Discovery and breakthrough[edit]

In 2000, Trentini was discovered walking down a street in her hometown by an agent, the same one who scouted Gisele Bündchen,[2] and soon afterward she moved to São Paulo, a common destination for young Brazilian models. Her modeling career immediately took off, and after a year, Trentini moved again, this time to New York City. She did not speak English but quickly learned the new language. Trentini's breakthrough came when designer Marc Jacobs cast her in his Marc by Marc Jacobs ad campaign, photographed by Juergen Teller.

She has appeared on the covers of magazines ELLE, Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, among others.

In 2007, she was the face of Gucci Cruise, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana Animelier, Dsquared² and Mulberry. Currently, she is the face on DKNY and Carlos Miele.

In the May 2007 issue of American Vogue she was featured on the cover with fellow models: Doutzen Kroes, Jessica Stam, Raquel Zimmermann, Sasha Pivovarova, Agyness Deyn, Coco Rocha, Hilary Rhoda, Chanel Iman, and Lily Donaldson as the “World’s Next Top Models.”[4][5] In 2008 casting agent James Scully, who is responsible to pick which model is to score a spot on top runways, says in regards to Trentini:

Trentini made her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show debut in 2005 and also walked the show in 2006 and 2009.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Trentini dated photographer Victor Demarchelier, son of legendary French photographer Patrick Demarchelier for about three years. Immediately after breaking up with Demarchelier, in early 2010, she got back together with Brazilian photographer Fabio Bartelt, who was her first boyfriend. In October 29, 2011, both Trentini and Bartelt announced they were engaged. In March 3, 2012, Bartelt and Trentini were married on a church in Itajaí, Santa Catarina, Brazil.[7] On February 23, 2013, the couple announced on Twitter that they were expecting a baby. Trentini gave birth to a boy named Bento Jacob Trentini Bartelt on August 9, 2013.[8]
