VIENNA, May 28 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Barbara Eden tweeted a photo of herself wearing her iconic "I Dream of Jeannie" costume at Vienna's Life Ball last weekend.

Eden, 81, wore the pink veil, bra top and harem pants to Saturday's event, which was attended by former U.S. President Bill Clinton and actress Carmen Electra, MSNBC said.

"Here it is folks! The navel that put NBC on edge! Barbara Eden, Sat. night at the Life Ball!" Eden tweeted Sunday, alongside a photo of herself in full "Jeannie" regalia.

Network censors ordered Eden to keep her belly button hidden during the sitcom, which ran from 1965-70.

The show was about a beautiful, 2,000-year-old genie who falls in love with an American astronaut, played by the late Larry Hagman, in modern-day Florida.
