While they may work for rival television networks, The Project’s Carrie Bickmore and Today Extra’s Sylvia Jeffreys have been united in their support for Aussie fashion this week.

The two TV stars were both seen wearing the Cara star pendant blazer by Australian designer Rebecca Vallance on Monday.

Carrie wore the ivory version of the $799 jacket on The Project, while Sylvia donned the black version for the label’s runway show at Sydney’s Carriageworks.

Sylvia teamed hers with a pink knitted turtleneck, black trousers, a crossbody bag and heels in a look her fans adored on Instagram.


“Gorgeous,” “stunning,” “lovely,” and “You look great, Silvia,” were some of the comments fans left, while Carrie was called “elegant” in the white version of the jacket.

Even the designer herself is a particularly big fan of the piece, and wore the ivory Cara blazer with the matching $399 trousers when she came out onto the runway at the end of the label’s show that same day.

The blazer and trousers are part of Rebecca Vallance’s new season collection and are made of a luxurious boucle tweed fabric with frayed edges.

Blazers are big this winter

Boxy blazers have been a big hit amongst attendees at this season’s Fashion Week, with models and influencers all seen wearing the trend.

NET-A-PORTER's Senior Buyer, Libby Page, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that blazers are popular this autumn/winter because of their versatility.

“Styling plays a key part in how our customer effortlessly transitions from working from home to the office,” she explains.

“Blazers from designers including Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta will continue to do extremely well, however we expect our customer to style them up and down with jeans or a casual pant, rather than in a coordinated suit.”

She adds that brands have responded to this by giving their designs “multi-functional details to allow the customer to wear separately,” so they don’t necessarily have to be worn with the matching trousers.

Carrie's impeccable style

Meanwhile, Carrie earned fashion points from fans when she wore this patterned, $475 Reiss dress on The Project last month.

The polished yet ever so slightly boho frock sent viewers wild, with one taking to Instagram to declare it 'Divine'.

"Looove this dress," said another, while a third fan agreed, but added, "Kinda wish it were a shirt though!" — which it actually can be.
