Why we love Mary-Kate and Ashley's ''Winning London''

PREDICAMENT The Lawrence girls' debate team gets invited to London for a Model U.N. competition. They take home the trophy, but not before one of them angers a lord by distracting and falling in love with his son.

MARY-KATE PLAYS Chloe, the conservative, competitive one who also plays hard-to-get

ASHLEY PLAYS Easygoing Riley, who's more interested in competing for the attention of boys

FASHION STATEMENT Cool Brittania: peacoats, striped scarves, and knee-high boots

WHY WE LOVE IT It's like ''Pretty Woman''-meets-''Love Story,'' except without the hooker and the dying.
