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.
