Barbara Eden at 78

Barbara Eden at 78, 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.

Barbara first appeared on stage at Vienna's City Hall alongside former Olympic swimmer Greg Louganis, pop star Fergie, and even organiser Gery Keszler.

Eden then reenacted her classic wish-conjuring arm and head nod, which magically brought out her new 'Master' - former US President Bill Clinton.

The 66-year-old politician escorted Barbara hand-in-hand up the tall velvet steps off the stage.

Before her big entrance, the aging beauty walked the glamorous event's magenta carpet in a glittery gold gown featuring a thigh-high slit and matching bolero.

Rather than a gold purse, Barbara clutched a replica of the purple genie's bottle from her famous show.

The sitcom's premise involved a 2,000-year-old genie being rescued by a handsome astronaut, who rubs her bottle after crash landing his shuttle on a beach.
