ACNE ACTION JEANS ($189) AT WANT STIL, MONTREAL

With Montreal rivaling Vancouver as a hot location -- just this summer, Martin Scorsese's ''The Aviator'', Halle Berry's ''Gothika'', and the Angelina Jolie-Ethan Hawke thriller ''Taking Lives'' shot there -- the city's boutiques are now a destination for celeb shoppers. Penelope Cruz, Jolie, and Gwen Stefani are among those flocking to Want Stil for hard-to-find Scandinavian labels like Filippa K and J. Lindeberg. But, says founder-owner Byron Peart, the big sellers are super-slim jeans from Stockholm-based Acne. ''It's for clients looking for an alternative,'' says Peart of the Acne jeans Charlize Theron picked up at the shop. Gives new meaning to the word backne. -- Alice M. Lee
