(CBS) -- Did someone wish for Barbara Eden to re-don her "I Dream of Jeannie" costume? If so, that wish has been granted.

The actress, 78, dusted off the iconic pink crop top and harem pants for the Life Ball charity event in Vienna, Austria, on Saturday.

"Here it is folks! The navel that put NBC on edge!" Eden tweeted, with a photo of her in costume:

She also shared a second photo showing her posing backstage with singer Adam Lambert.

Other attendees at the gala, billed as Europe's biggest fundraiser for HIV and AIDS awareness, included former President Bill Clinton, Elton John, Olympic diver Greg Louganis and singer Fergie.

"I Dream of Jeannie" ran from 1965-1970, with Eden starring as the 2,000-year-old genie who falls in love with and eventually marries her master, astronaut Tony Nelson (played by the late Larry Hagman).
