Tatiana did not like the Met’s Model as Muse. Here’s her critique.

From the website, we learn that it’s “a non profit sports organization for at risk kids through the use of action sports, mentoring and coaching.” Daria’s NOT only helping at risk youth but doing it in a way that’s groovy and totally relatable to the kids. Judging from these Inez and Vinoodh pics for Vogue Paris, she is the perfect model for this aptly named cause.
