She spent five years and 139 episodes starring on sixties sitcom, I Dream of Jeannie.

And Barbara Eden, 78, bravely donned her iconic crop-top and harem pantaloons for the opening ceremony of the 21st Life Ball in Vienna Saturday.

The evergreen TV legend still looked fabulous while baring her impressive midriff in the pink chiffon costume and tiny red velvet bolero.

The former blonde bombshell even made sure to wear her star-making role's classic braided blonde ponytail wig, scarf hat, and silver kitten heels.

Originally designed by Gwen Wakeling with colors selected by Eden, the Jeannie costume caused controversy with the censors due to the slightly exposed navel.

Yes, she does look great!  One trivial difference though--in the 60's, the network would not allow Eden to show her belly button while in costume.  Now she can!  :beer:

She looks good, but going from Larry Hagman to Bill Clinton is definitely a step down.  God only knows what's going to be on Bill Clinton's "wish list."  If I were her I'd do that little head bob thingy and get rid of the cigars before it's too late.

HA! You reminded me of something. Asked my Mom about that - hey I was only 10 - and Mom said "She is a Genie. She doesn't have a belly button."

That was pretty close to the thought I had in my head, too. Of all the men... Clinton... blech!

BTW, for you trivia buffs out there, Barbara Eden is Israeli. She was born in the port city Haifa.

Don't forget that you couldn't say "pregnant" on TV or that the husband and wife slept in different beds.

She was in a movie on PixL recently... looks great except there is something really strange-looking with her jaw line and around her lips these days.. not certain what it is..
