    Barbara Eden "Jeannie" signature pink harem costume from I Dream of Jeannie. (NBC-TV, 1965-70) Vintage original (5) piece screen worn signature "Jeannie" costume. On the heels of the success of the Bewitched sitcom and inspired by the movie The Brass Bottle, producer Sydney Sheldon conceived of the idea for a beautiful female genie. After a protracted casting process, Barbara Eden was chosen to play the good-hearted but naive supernatural conjurer. Costume designer Gwen Wakeling, a personal favorite of Cecil B. DeMille, who earned an Academy Award for her work on Samson and Delilah in 1950 was chosen to create Barbara Eden's iconic "Jeannie" costumes in 1965. This was one of Wakeling's final projects. This costume includes (1) ruched pink silk chiffon top constructed upon an Accentuette brand nude underwire brassiere, featuring pink floral tassels, pale pink braided trim, bodice reinforced with integral wire stays, lining and padding, back straps with hook and eye closure, (1) Saks Fifth Avenue brand nude brassiere with layers of pale pink chiffon and crème lace with magenta velvet trim, retaining internal Saks Fifth Avenue and Columbia Pictures bias labels, (1) matching dark pink velvet bolero-style short sleeve vest jacket with braided light pink trim, integral hem weights, tassles on each arm, internal tether snaps, and retaining internal, "Columbia Pictures" bias label handwritten, "1967 [illegible]", (1) pair of matching pink rayon and velvet harem pants with elasticized cuffs, hook and eye and snap back closure, nude silk lining, retaining the internal, "Columbia Pictures" bias label with handwritten "1967" [illegible], (1) loose flowing pink chiffon scarf. The costume embodies the 1960s sexy innocence that was a hallmark of entertainment of the era. With some studio repair to rayon pants legs, suggesting this costume was used in a number of epsiodes. Exhibiting age, production wear and handling, with minor soiling, some loose threads and minor fraying to chiffon elements. In vintage very good condition.
