Ashley Graham is teasing Barbie-loving fans as the premiere date of HGTV’s four-episode series, Barbie’s Dreamhouse Challenge, draws closer. The three-time SI Swimsuit model will serve as the program’s host as HGTV stars turn a house in Malibu, Calif., into a home inspired by the iconic Mattel doll. 

In her Instagram carousel posted Wednesday, Graham shared several pretty-in-pink photos. In the first, she held an oversized brush with a “B” monogram as she grinned for the camera. Other snaps showed the mom of three posing in front of a house in a fuzzy orange mini dress, chatting on the red carpet in a feathered pink frock and more.

“peek behind the pink curtain 👀,” the 2016 SI Swimsuit Issue cover model wrote in her caption. “I can NOT wait to share this nostalgic Barbie dream with all of you! @HGTV’s #BarbieDreamhouseChallenge premieres on July 16 at 8|7c 💕 STAY TUNED!”

Tons of Graham’s 21 million followers on the platform flocked to the comments section with excitement.
