Sexy sleepers



If you’re not distracted by the fury of messy, mousy brown hair on one panic-dancing Calista Flockhart during the opening credits of “Ally McBeal,” you may have noticed her whimsical PJs. P.J. Salvage pajamas have made their grand entrance into national television wardrobes; worn by McBeal beauty queens as well as the prime-time princesses of “Friends” and “Charmed.” Available as top-bottom outfits, short-legged capris or accessory socks and scrunchies, creator Peter Burke’s trademark sleepwear is blushed with campy patterns including cowboys, bulls, pin-up girls or sushi. “Bristle Socks” even feature a funny image of a porcupine making love-eyes at a toilet brush.
