Ashley Graham was effortlessly radiant while Christina Hall embraced retro fashion in a newly dropped trailer for HGTV’s Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge which was shared on her Instagram on Tuesday.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit star, 35, who recently exuded classic Hollywood pinup style in a black lace bodysuit, is the host of the new competition series that will bring Barbie’s home to reality.
At the beginning of the trailer, Graham could be strutting in an off-the-shoulder, orange minidress that perfectly showcased her curves.
The ensemble was made of a fuzzy material with sparkling details added on the upper right side.
The show is slated to premiere on July 16.
The show’s release will come only days before Greta Gerwig’s anticipated live-action Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling hits theaters on July 21.
Wow! Ashley Graham, 35, was effortlessly radiant while Christina Hall embraced 70s fashion in a new trailer for HGTV’s Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge which was shared on her Instagram on Wednesday
Graham, a mother of three, could be seen leading teams of superstar competitors, such as HGTV’s Christina Hall and Egypt Sherrod, with the video then cutting to Ashley sitting on a comfy couch that was topped with various pink pillows.
‘HGTV is building a real, life-sized Barbie dreamhouse!’ Ashley gushed towards the camera, with Hall cutting in while next to a dollhouse to add, ‘That you can really live in!’
The trailer then showed a brief construction montage with some of the competitors as they transformed a normal Southern California home into a one-of-a-kind, Barbie wonderland.
A few snippets showed some of the finished renovations, including a lit up disco dance floor, a luxurious pink kitchen, and a backyard paradise with a shimmering pool and slide perfect for Barbie herself.
Christina also had a blast during the renovations, and had fun trying on Barbie-themed outfits, such as a colorful, 70s-inspired minidress. ‘Just a little Barbie magic,’ she gushed.
‘You gotta bring the glam if you want the glory,’ Ashley explained before the trailer concluded. ‘Some renovation required,’ she added with a wink.
The four-part series not only has Ashley as the host, but has also brought in eight teams that includes HGTV stars and also a Food Network chef, to fully renovate parts of the house.

Some themes that competitors have to create include a 90s entryway and a 70s-inspired den. The winning team will donate funds to the non-profit called Save The Children.
The organization, which was founded over 100 years ago in 1919, aims ‘to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm,’ according to the official website.
After the renovations are completed, one very lucky fan will win the chance to have a memorable sleepover in Barbie’s dreamhouse.
The head judges are designer Jonathan Adler and fellow Barbie Dreamhouse expert and designer, Tiffany Brooks. Every week, a celebrity guest judge will also join in on the festivities, such as fashion designer Christian Siriano.
In the caption of her Instagram post, Ashley excitedly penned to her 20.7 million fans and followers, ‘What a Barbie dream to host #BarbieDreamHouseChallenge. My Mini Barbie and I will see you soon.’
The media personality also took time to open up to Entertainment Tonight earlier this month to further promote the show, and hinted that the transformed home is every Barbie fans’ dream, and also contains items and features from the dollhouses.
‘A lot of the toyetic features that you remember in the dream houses are in this house,’ Graham expressed to the outlet.
James Bender, one of the competitors, teased at what viewers can expect from the four-part series alongside the Christina In The Country star while also talking to ET.
‘It truly is Barbie’s dreamhouse,’ Hall stated, with Bender jumping in to state, ‘It’s magic.’ She also explained that the competition was ‘fierce’ and James added, ‘I mean, we looked at some of the things, taking a little peak, and it’s no joke.’
Although Christina competed against numerous HGTV stars, the confidence in her work never wavered. ‘Trust me, from the second we found out we were doing this, we said we were gonna win it.’
