Aussies were blown away on Sunday night by Johanna Griggs’ stunning outfit choice during her hosting duties on popular show House Rules.
While renovation fans tuned in to watch the transformation of a home, audiences were momentarily captivated by Johanna’s gorgeous black frock which complimented her figure perfectly.
The 45-year-old looked beautiful in the knee-length dress which featured a plunging neckline and showed off a hint of cleavage. The grandmother opted for a more natural look with her makeup, choosing a dark mascara and a touch of bronzer on her cheeks.
With her blonde locks framing her face, Johanna smiled broadly for the cameras in a snap posted on her personal social media page.

While Johanna has certainly had some great accomplishments over the years, the TV presenter revealed recently it hasn’t all been easy.
The mother’s personal life was thrown into the spotlight in the late 1990s when her marriage to actor Gary Sweet ended and now she’s admitted the heartbreak even left her feeling like a “failure” at the time.
In an exclusive chat with The Australian Women’s Weekly, the 45-year-old explained that the difficult time led to her raising her kids as a single mum, but she has since come to appreciate that. Meanwhile, she also opened up on becoming a grandparent in her 40s and how it’s changed her and her husband Todd Huggins’ lives.
The TV host explained she felt like a failure when her first marriage came to an end in 1999, but it was all for the best as it “uncomplicated” their lives.
“I loved my years as a single mum,” she told the news outlet. “There are situations where people go between parents – we really didn’t have to do that. So you’re the decision maker, they’re your little buddies. And I had a lot of support around me.”
Johanna also spoke openly about the transition from competitive swimming to TV presenting, admitting while it wasn’t the easiest of moves, she is thankful for everything it brought – good and bad.
After stepping away from swimming, the presenter joined the team at Seven Sport in 1993. She began with hosting duties at the Australian Open, followed by the networks Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games. She is also known for her role on Better Homes and Gardens and House Rules.
“Failure is the greatest lesson in the world,” she added to the publication. “The greatest opportunities in my life, the greatest lessons I’ve learnt and the greatest pivot points where you totally change direction have come from my failures. And that’s not a bad thing.”
