I realized that politics had not only entered my bedroom but my bathroom as well. I decided then and there that my bravest political act would be to tell the truth.
SEASON THREE – EPISODE TWO; “Politically Erect”: Carrie is dating Bill Kelley, the politician she met in Staten Island a few weeks before. Having such a man by her side, she doesn’t miss the chance to recreat the perfect looks of the most famous first ladies, Jackie Kennedy for instance.
Another political look Carrie shows off can be seen during one of the usual girls’ dates with her friends. While they’re discussing politics and the looks of politician in power, Carrie seems very presidential in her powdery blue suit and striped blouse (maybe too patriottic, but it’ll do). In her outfit she also hands out advices to Miranda about her intricate story with bartender Steve.
Another perk of dating a politician is beign able to attend fancy parties for a political fundraiser.
However, as perfect as it may seem, Bill Kelley has a bit of a flaw when it comes to secret sex fantasies… he would like Carrie to PEE ON HIM! Carrie doesn’t know how to react to this unexpected desire, and seeks help from her friends.
To try and avoid as much as possible the moment when she would have to pee on his boyfriend, Carrie stops drinking… but it’s not easy if you’re eating the hottest curry in the city! Luckily, that night the politician has to be home earlier, so they won’t spend the night together.
While Carrie is having troubles reenacting “The Princess and the Pee”, Charlotte has organized a party to which every woman invited had to bring a man she was not interested in: basically the representation of “One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure”. Samantha’s takes the chance to invite her small man and try and dump him, whereas Carrie just brings Stanford. The night isn’t going to work out for many of the ladies: Carrie leaves on her own; Charlotte makes a guy’s ex girlfriend jealous and the two end up in her room snogging; Samantha goes home with small guy Jeff and she has a night she won’t forget (of sex, obviously).
FASHION BONUS: The night with Jeff has changed Samantha’s politically incorrect view of smaller people, so she decides to have a second date with him. Despite still seeing him as a little boy (and despite the fact he shops in Bloomingsdale boy’s deartment), she is going to date her for 2 more weeks.
She seems to be aware that red dress are perfect for blonde women, as she is wearing another red dress, a but darker this time, underneath a furry coat and a slick back hairstyle.
CELEB BONUS: At Charlotte’s party, we see a face we should know quite well… It’s a young Elizabeth Banks! She’s Catherine, a guest at the party.
