Haylynn Cohen (born October 9, 1980) is an American model who came to prominence in the late 1990s. She walked in the 2000 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Haylynn was born in Brooklyn, and her brother is Adam Cohen (later Adam Elk) who sang and played the guitar for The Mommyheads and more recently composes for television commercials.

The story goes that Haylynn was discovered while skateboarding while a student at Lincoln High School (isn't that how it always happens?).

Haylynn says that she was playing hooky from school in 1995 and was up in Washington Square Park. Barbara Pfister, a casting director, approached her with a Polaroid camera and took some snaps - after having to pay Haylynn $200 for the privilege. They wanted her to go to Paris right away, but it took some convincing of her father, who was on the school board and figured the modeling offers were a scam.

Cohen shot to prominence and appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris in November 1999

Cracking the peaks of the French high fashion scene isn't easy for a Brooklyn girl to pull off, but Haylynn did it.

More recently, having stepped back from modeling, Haylynn has been doing house renovations - which is a big business in Brooklyn due to all the gentrification going on there.

Haylynn has two children and still models now and then.
