Episode Summary

Carrie has a one-time, big-shot free-lancing opportunity at Vogue. She puts her heart and soul into a shoe article, which unfortunately isn't very well accepted by the female editor. After a lot of bonding with the male editor, Julian, Carrie finds herself completely swept off her feet with all the glamour of Vogue. When she is given the opportunity of her dreams – pick anything on the Vogue closet – she decides that no pair of shoes can replace her dignity as she is surprised by a pant-less Julian. Meanwhile, Samantha decides to give Richard a threesome for his birthday, and learns that one twenty year old bimbo doesn't get anywhere near her twenty year old experience. And Charlotte freaks out while hosting Miranda a baby shower after sees a present that brings her back to her past.moreless

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Enid to Carrie: This isn't Vogue

        Vogue is the most prestigious and best selling fashion magazine in the world. Its current editor-in-chief is Anna Wintour who has held such position since 1988.

      • Charlotte: Fried chicken? It's not time for the Super Bowl!
        Miranda: It's my shower and I'll fry if I want to.

        This is a play on the Leslie Gore song, "It's My Party (And I'll Cry If I Want To)." The teenage girl in the song is crying because her boyfriend showed up at her birthday party with another girl.
