Aleksandr Petrovsky The story: On a visit to an art gallery Charlotte and Carrie bump into famed Russian artist Aleksandr Petrovsky. Charlotte is over the moon to have met one of her favourite artists, but Petrovsky pays more attention to Carrie, calling her later in the week to pursue her. Pros: We loved that Aleksandr managed to make Carrie forget about Big, He even whisked her off to Paris in the final of the last TV season. He seemed like the perfect gentleman. Cons: Of course, he wasn't! Aleksandr had a reputation for being a big player, and has bedded lots of women. He already had a daughter in her 20s, but didn't want anymore children so he had a vasectomy. As we got to know Petrovsky, we realised he was a bit in love with himself, and we disliked him even more when he told Carrie she was not his friend, but his lover. Handbag.com's verdict: Aleksandr Petrovsky was our least favourite of Carrie's boyfriends. Why would she move to Paris for such an egomaniac? We're glad she got shot of him, and we're also glad that Big chased her to Paris.
