BA-DUNK-A-DUNK!


BA-DUNK-A-DUNK! THEY'RE saving the Garden one hair extension at a time. Ditch the hope of an NBA Championship trophy and give it up for the Knicks City Dancers and their new costumes - a glitzy "commuter" look and a saucy silver-shorts and crop-top "athletic" number, both inspired by New York women. The two new outfits make five total for the dancers, who also have a tieandvest "boardroom" look, an "elegant" "cocktail" dress ensemble and their signature orange and blue "NYC superwoman" costume.

"The dancers are strong, empowered New York women, and the costumes are the physical manifestation of that," says Michelle Harris, Knicks director of entertainment marketing. "You have to be physically strong and agile to execute our choreography and mentally tough to be in this city, and that's what our costumes represent."

That and hot chicks.

To be fair, the squad is made up of hardworking girls. They do their own hair and makeup - including clipping in hairpieces and tying in ponytails during less than three-minute game-time costume changes - rehearse daily and endure intense monthly workout boot camps.

No wonder they're in such good shape. Maybe Eddy Curry should be working out with them!

See the new looks at the Knicks' home opener against the Philadelphia 76ers, Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m.

* Start spreading the news: Chanel is celebrating its new Bloomingdale's 59th Street makeup studio with a limited stock of Rouge Hydrabase Lipstick ($28) in apple-tastic "New York Red." Or stop by next Wednesday, when the brand's celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee will dish on how she creates her signature smoke eye famously seen on Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller and Anne Hathaway's lids while Alex Chung deejays from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

* Finger-lickin' good: Frais makes sanitizer for fancy hands - infused with essential oils including ginger, tangerine, lemon, myrtle, orange, basil and grapefruit, it smells great and keeps hands moisturized. Frais hand sanitizer, $7 for 1.7 ounces at frais.com.au.

* Kid-safe, mom-approved: We're so excited to see "The Princess and the Frog" next month. In the meantime, we're slathering our hair in Carol's Daughter's new Princess Tiana beauty collection designed in collaboration with Disney. There's aloe leaf in the kid-safe shampoo ($10) to condition dry winter scalp, sweet almond in the conditioner ($10) to promote growth, and lemon peel extract in the detangler ($10) to nourish and add shine. Princess Tiana collection for Carol's Daughter available at carolsdaughter.com, disney.com and Macy's.

* Bigger is better: Eau Mega, Dutch design duo Viktor & Rolf's newest fragrance, lands in stores this month and is dispensed by squishing the giant logo "megamizer" - that's fashion code for "really big atomizer." Eau Mega, from $75 for 1 ounce at Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale's.

* Barbie hair from Ken! Ken Paves is Hollywood's hottest wave creator. And since he's the one responsible for Eva Longoria Parker (pictured) and Jessica Simpson's hot hair, we're pumped for his latest launch - blow dryers and curling irons all for under $100 at ulta.com.

* Left Coast beauty: Who doesn't love LA for Studio BeautyMix at Fred Segal? The indie beauty store has opened its first East Coast location in Korres' SoHo shop (110 Wooster St.; 212-219-0683) and stocks products like Egyptian Magic face cream, Tokyo Milk scents and Dr. Sager's "Ouchy Boo Boo Gel" ($13 to $49), along with more mainstream lines like Stila and Smashbox. Haute List readers who bring a copy of this column to the store will get 20 percent off their purchase (today only).
