Patsy gets the chance to relive her days as a model on a photo shoot in Paris with top model Erin O'Connor. Eddy comes along for a mother/daughter daughter fashion spread, but fails to persuade any glamorous young actress to play her daughter, so she drags Saffy into it. Patsy gets edged out of the picture by younger models and a glamorous photographer, and Eddy goads Saffy to do something totally out-of-character atop the Eiffel Tower. Written by don @ minifie-1

Second least favorite episode of all time
10 April 2007 | by (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"Paris" is one of the weakest episodes in "Ab Fab" history. This episode often seems jumbled when compared to other episodes. However, it still has its charms, humor, and usual "Ab Fab" moments to keep it entertaining. Edina and Patsy take a third trip to France to be part of an intergenerational photo feature titled, "Generation Flex." Edina would rather have someone else play the role of her daughter for the mother-and-daughter part of the shoot, but it's too late to get anyone else. The only thing she can do is bring Saffy along. Saffy reluctantly agrees on going to Paris as a model for the mother-and-daughter shoot. Patsy believes her part of the photo shoot will be more stylish and glamorous, and it gives her an opportunity to reminisce on her past experiences as a fashion model. Patsy knows she'll be working with supermodel Erin O'Connor, and she is quite enthused about it. What she doesn't know is other models from her era are back in demand. She's not too enthused when she finds out Annegret Tree and Daphne Selfe will also be part of the photo layout. She is even less enthusiastic when she's shown the punk-trash outfit she has to wear, which includes a fabricated facial wart as part of the make-up. Bubble has tagged along to Paris dressed in Napoleon uniform garb. She mostly stands on the sidelines, but she does manage to throw an insult Patsy's way. There's more to ruining Patsy's day than Bubble's insult, and the fact that she hates the "fashions" she has to wear. She also has to conceal her age, and compete with Annegret and Daphne. More problems occur when Patsy doesn't follow the photographer's directions. The photographer, Rimmer (Dave Gorman), becomes meanspirited and sarcastic. Edina and Saffy weren't scheduled to model right away, so they use their free time to explore Paris. They can't agree on an itinerary, which leads to bickering. Saffy finally sees the light, and decides to see Paris her mother's way. The planned activities include shopping, dining, and baring their breasts at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Patsy becomes so fed up with the photo session that she walks off. Saffy finds an even worse situation when she exposes her breasts at the top of the Eiffel Tower! Mrs. M. is shown walking in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral during a flashback. Tilly Blackwood returns as Candy Bender, and Christian Lacroix returns in a cameo. Jon Plowman fills in as an extra in a posh restaurant.
