Barbara Eden, who became a household name in the 1960s as the lead in I Dream of Jeannie, donned her famous costume at a gala on May 25.

The 78-year old actress made an appearance in her costume for the opening ceremony of the 21st Life Ball in Vienna. Eden's famous pink and red crop-top and pantaloons were on full display complete with the exposed midriff. Eden also wore the blonde, braided ponytail wig and the scarf hat.

The actress performed the arms-crossed/head-nod trick used often in I Dream of Jeannie and "summoned" former president Bill Clinton. He then escorted her, holding hands, off the stage. Eden's Jeannie costume was controversial during the show's run, mostly due to her exposed midriff. Before changing into the costume, Eden wore a gold, glittering gown on the event's magenta carpet, clutching a replica of the purple genie bottle featured in the show.

I Dream of Jeannie ran for five seasons on NBC from September 1965 to May 1970.  The sitcom featured Eden as a 2,000-year-old genie who is summoned after an astronaut rubs the famous purple bottle.  The pair subsequently fall in love on screen.

The series was conceived to act as competition for the similarly-themed fantasy show Bewitched.

Eden's co-stars on I Dream of Jeannie included Larry Hagman as Jeannie's astronaut master Tony, Bill Daily as a fellow astronaut Roger Healey, Hayden Rorke as NASA's medical officer Colonel Dr. Alfred Bellows and Emmaline Henry as Bellows' wife Amanda.

The sitcom spawned two made-for-TV movies, including I Dream of Jeannie... Fifteen Years Later in 1985 and I Still Dream of Jeannie in 1991.

Eden has also made appearances in such classic shows as I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, Gunsmoke and Perry Mason.

Eden's most recent acting role was in the 2009 TV movie Always and Forever for the Hallmark Channel.
