Miranda is with CRUNCH guy at her apartment pouring herself a South African Chardonnay and telling him that she loves her life and is feeling very confident. She leans in to kiss him, and he takes a sip of his wine instead. Ouch! Carrie tells us that Miranda didn't know what changed between them.
Samantha is at a frame store telling the frame guy that she wants her frame for her nude photo to be "pure class." Honey, it is impossible for anything that contains your skanky nude body to have class. The frame guy seems to agree, and when she shows him her picture he acts like he could care less. She points out her breasts and ass in the picture, and he just suggests a matte color. Samantha gets frustrated because the guy isn't interested in her, and leaves.
Carrie and Paul are at her apartment drinking red wine and looking through a book of his photos. Paul gets embarrassed and he tells her he doesn't like doing fashion photography anymore, and that he does biography photos now. He shows her a candid photo he took of her at her fitting, tells her she looks beautiful, and then makes his move. The way to Carrie's bed is through her ego.
Carrie and Stanford are backstage at the fashion show. Stanford is wearing the same suit as before, but this time it is mustard yellow. What is up with the horrible suits he has to wear? I thought gay men had style! Carrie keeps telling Stanford she is a model, and that she is going to wear super-high heels. She is put over in the groups with the "Non-Models." Carrie gets cold feet when she finds out that she is modeling with Frank Rich and Fran Lebowitz and she realizes she isn't as good-looking as she thought they thought she was. Margaret Cho makes her stay, and gives her a split of champagne to calm her down. High heels and champagne. Perfect together.
Miranda and Samantha sit down by the runway. Miranda is complaining about CRUNCH guy's not wanting to kiss her. Samantha complains about the frame guy's not noticing her pussy when she laid it out on the table for him to see. For some reason, the people sitting in front of them are slightly disgusted. Cue the tubas for that wacky sex-talk comedy!
Carrie is backstage drinking and smoking. Alan's assistant tells her she is no longer wearing the blue sequined dress; she is wearing a bedazzled pair of panties. Alan tells her he saw that Dior is showing something like the blue dress right before her. Carrie tells him, "Me no likey," and asks Paul to help out. Alan tells her that the panties come with a coat. She tries on the panties, and Alan tells her that she needs big hair to go with them. Like her hair is naturally flat?
