Don’t let Charlie Westerberg’s boyish looks fool you. The Swedish model is quite the character. Starting his modeling career at the age of fifteen, it has been a slow but steady rise for Charlie. From his 2008 Prada exclusive and initial shoot with Hedi Slimane to the recent demand of work from the likes of Barneys, Cheap Monday and Topman, Charlie has kept quite busy. Discussing the perks of modeling, Charlie was quick to reply with a short, but sweet list that includes “Danish girls, friends you meet, earning money that you then spend on stupid shit [and] walking around Miami in the middle of the night.” However, as with everything, the quick paced life of a model has its downsides. Charlie does not like flying and when it comes to people in the industry who take themselves too seriously, all Charlie has in mind is “blah blaaaahhaaaa blllaaa…” Although “modeling has taken him places he never could have imagined, as a person he explains, it does wear you out– “Always getting judged and all that”, but with humor, Charlie adds that he will “just take what [he] can and then say goodbye with style…like blow [himself] up at the end of the catwalk at [his] last show or something.” Hopefully, it never reaches that point, but in the meanwhile, Charlie is keeping himself grounded with school–attending castings when time allows.
