  • Episode Description
  • Carrie is asked to be a model on a fashion show mixing real models and real people. At first reluctant to believe she was chosen to be a model, Carrie is quickly swept off her feet with the glamour of the fashion business. But as everything that comes fast goes fast her dream turns into a nightmare when moments before the show her dress is changed to a jewelry panty. With a huge hair, heavy makeover and high heels, Carrie finally feels like a supermodel and enters the stage strong and confident, only to fall from the top of her shoes. Nevertheless, she gets up and goes on with the show, after all she's a real person and when real people fall they get back on their feet and move on. Meanwhile, Charlotte is embarrassed to change gynecologists when she develops a rash on her vagina, and even more embarrassed when the doctor prescribes anti-depressives for her vagina. But the real solution for Charlotte's depressed vagina is more attention, and so Charlotte finally meets her female part with a mirror. Elsewhere, Samantha decides to pose nude just so she can look back years from now and remember how hot she was, while Miranda drives a man away with her self confidence.moreless
