Mini Skirt Monday #80: Barbara Eden
Harper Valley PTA earns a special place in the miniskirt hall of fame because the song was about a woman wearing a mini, much to the dismay of her judgmental neighbors, and was sung by Jeannie C. Riley, a country singer who always wore mini skirts.
Well, there was another Jeannie who wore minis - the lady in a bottle played by Barbara Eden (who, incidentally played the lead character in the Harper Valley PTA movie adaptation). The first few years of I Dream of Jeannie saw plenty of miniskirts; however, none were on Jeannie. Then, around 1968, that all changed. Eden started sporting a mini in every episode - perhaps wearing it more often than the iconic pink genie outfit!
So, I would be remiss not to have an ongoing vintage miniskirt post series and not include Barbara Eden, who rocked the mini like no other for a few magical years on TV. Here's some screen grabs for your viewing pleasure. Click to enlarge.
