No, you are not dreaming.

Decidedly fulfilling the wishes of countless I Dream of Jeannie fans, Barbara Eden dusted off her genie garb for Saturday’s Life Ball charity event in Vienna.

It’s been more than 40 years since she hung up her then-controversial crop top and harem pants when the sitcom wrapped in 1970 after five seasons. But on Saturday, the actress, 78, even revisited that iconic braided ‘do – to the delight of a few very special fans.

Her new master? None other than 42nd U.S. President Bill Clinton. And in a truly magical moment (insert her signature head nod here), she even hung with mom-to-be Fergie, who hosted the event.

The ball – which is considered the largest charity event in Europe and aims to raise awareness about AIDS and HIV – also drew support from stars such as Carmen Electra, Elton John and Kelly Osbourne.
