The Must List 2004

Scarlett Johansson

AGE 19
CREDITS Johansson was the lush-lipped star of ''Lost in Translation'' and ''Girl With a Pearl Earring.''
WHY HER? Couture's new go-to celeb (she'll grace campaigns for Calvin Klein and Louis Vuitton) is curvaceous without the more in-your-face charms of J. Lo. ''Scarlett's really contemporary -- she looks like beauty 2004 to me -- but in some ways she's almost a throwback, what many consider a classic beauty,'' says celeb stylist Vincent Boucher of her dual modern-retro allure. ''And she seems to have an air of amusement -- like she's got a nice secret or something -- which people like.'' SHE LOVES... Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford.
BUT WOULDN'T BE CAUGHT DEAD IN... ''All these miniskirts are a little scary,'' says Johansson. ''They seem to get shorter and shorter. I saw one with built-in underwear -- I just think you shouldn't have built-in underwear in skirts.''
INSPIRATION '''Moonstruck' -- the best movie ever! Also movies with imagination that allow me to escape my regular day, like 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.'''
NEXT The Weitz brothers' ''Synergy,'' ''Mission: Impossible 3'' with Tom Cruise, and Brian De Palma's adaptation of James Ellroy's ''The Black Dahlia,'' costarring Mark Wahlberg.
