Adina Fohlin (born December 20, 1984) is a Swedish model. She was discovered while walking down the street in Stockholm, and Emmanuelle Alt, the fashion director of Vogue Paris approached her, having noticed her unusual features. Myriam Obadiah, creative director of Fohlin's agency, Next, described her as a girl who does not resemble a typical model.
Fohlin appeared on the cover of Japanese and Italian Vogue for the June 2007 issue, Flair, French Revue de Modes, Swedish ELLE and The Face magazine. First surfacing on international catwalks during the spring 2001 prêt-à-porter season, Fohlin has proved a prolific runway model, appearing in numerous shows for fashion houses such as Christian Dior, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, YSL Rive Gauche and Prada.
Fohlin appeared in a commercial for Apoliva, an assortment of personal care products, for Apoteket that aired in Sweden around August 2009. The commercial gained notoriety in Sweden after almost 100,000 Swedes joined a Facebook group called “I am scared of the girl in the Apoliva commercial.”
