NEW YORK — As the hours slip away until the curtain raises on the Spring 2016 ready-to-wear season this Thursday in New York another curtain comes down on the Next Questions series for the season with its 20th and final episode starring none other than Sabrina Ioffreda. Last week Erika Linder graced this series as one of the stealthiest castings for Tom Ford advertising in recent memory, but let’s not for a moment lose sight of the smoldering brunette from Argentina who did all that kissing. Sabrina had long cemented her place in the collective memory with advertising for Prada, but Tom Ford Lips & Boys put the high gloss on those honors. “[It] was the best job I ever did. It was so much fun. I had the opportunity to kiss six beautiful boys and a beautiful girl.” Sabrina’s Argentinian accent adds particular emphasis on the “and” of that description, which ought to give anglophone viewers a taste of Sabrina’s personality that her compatriots and Spanish speakers in general have great familiarity. Truth be told no matter what language Sabrina speaks, her expressive ability is in no diminished however much speaking English has her feeling like a bird in a cage. There is no cage, be it language or steel, that can contain Sabrina’s beauty and spirit, which is part of what has made her a favorite for advertisers, the printed page, and runway alike.

In this 20th and final episode of the season Sabrina delivers a personal message in Spanish, discusses her career to date, and extols her love for her country as embodied by her compatriots Lionel Messi and Pope Francis, leaders of two of the world’s major religions, football and Catholicism. Next Questions will return with an all new season in late October
