Meet the girls of summer

Some of these ladies may be familiar in a “Did we go to college together?” kind of way. You know the face and have a good feeling about the person, but you just can’t quite place her. We’ve loved Anna Faris since her bit part in “Lost in Translation.” Julianne Hough has been on the verge of megastardom since her “Dancing With the Stars” days. Swedish actress Noomi Rapace was the original, if darker, Lisbeth Salander. This summer, the following ladies will be top of mind as they headline or bring to life the blockbusters, thrillers, and rom-coms we'll all be enjoying when it’s too hot outside to do anything else. Take a look and let us know who you think will rise to the top.
