Miranda discovers she was invited at Nick's, where all guests are asked with which movie star in the prime they would have loved to do it, to make a change with all those brainless models he keeps dating. The girlfriends see models as a living nightmare as those terribly demanded competitors actually walk around in Manhattan, giving them socially imposed inferiority complexes, except man-eater Sam. Carrie's friend poor painter Barkley, a serial 'modelizer', treats models as things and secretly videotapes his sex with them; Sam sees him as a challenge for her as superior non-model, and even insists to be taped. Stanford introduces Carrie to his friend and best client, gorgeous underwear-model Derek 'The Bone', who actually asks to stay the night with her and is even more shy and lonely then mortals who crave models, wanting to become a cop in his Iowa home town.

The annoying problem with models
4 April 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

In this episode of the Sex and The city series, we have an important dilemma to be solved: do men prefer models or ordinary girls? Carrie is decided to write a column about it,after seeing how many people,specially women, feel bad about themselves after comparing their looks with a model's look. Samantha is the only person in the episode who really likes her body, and she even goes out with Barkley, a guy obsessed by models. Stanford has a thing for Derek,Miranda Hobbes stays very disappointed with Nick Waxler, a guy she went out and only likes to date models( and stays with Skipper again, after he confesses that he find her luminous!) and Carrie starts feeling bad when she discovers the big superficiality of people,specially when she sees that even Mr. Big thinks are going out with models.

But is beauty everything after all? No one better then Mr. Big's to answer the question in the last minutes: ''After some time, you do prefer a nice and funny women to be at your side''.

aka "Modelos e Mortais" - Brazil
