Mandy Moore made EW's It List

Age 19

Why Her? Legions of too-cool Gen-Yers no doubt have at least one album by Kelly Osbourne's bosom buddy (and MTV's favorite daughter) hiding in their White Stripes-infested record collections. And -- sorry, Ms. Spears -- Moore is a promising actress with no fewer than five films lined up for release.

Role Model Bette Midler. ''She's a household name who's stayed true to who she is. And ''Beaches''! I mean...I'm gonna, like, tie my boyfriend [tennis player Andy Roddick] down and make him watch it.''

Blond Unambition The natural blonde garnered plenty of attention -- and a career boost -- with her brown-out for last year's ''A Walk to Remember.'' ''I'll never go blond again.... As cheesy and insignificant as it is to say that you've found yourself in a new hair color, it's the truth.''

Next July's ''How to Deal'' and the Michael Stipe-produced ''Saved,'' along with a pivotal role in Wes Craven's latest horror flick, ''Cursed.'' Plus there's a tribute to her musical forebears: Her October album, ''Coverage,'' features takes on songs by XTC and Cat Stevens.
