The Project: Carrie Bickmore looks different in resurfaced promo photo

Carrie Bickmore has been a host of The Project since its debut in 2009.

And she marked 13 years of the show on Wednesday by sharing a rare throwback photo of herself with original panelists Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes and Charlie Pickering.

The now 41-year-old looked very different in the old promo image with teased hair and a typical 2000s wardrobe.

Daily Mail Australia looks back at Carrie’s remarkable transformation over the years, from a fresh TV newcomer to a polished Gold Logie winner.

Carrie landed a gig on The Project in 2009 after a three-year stint on Rove Live.

In her throwback snap from the early days of the Channel 10 show, she wore jeans with a black scoop-neck blouse.

“Happy 13th birthday Project,” she wrote on Instagram.

Her followers couldn’t help but notice the daggy suits Hughesy and Charlie were wearing.

Fellow TV host Grant Denyer commented, “I think the boys borrowed their suits from their dad for this shoot.”

“This was when fashion meant something. Happy birthday,’ Hughesy replied.

Meanwhile, old footage from The Project shows that Carrie isn’t afraid to experiment with fashion, alternating between casual looks, designer dresses and business chic.

Looking back at Channel 10’s archives, it appears that Carrie began to embrace a more stylish approach after the rebranding of The 7PM Project in 2011.

She’s also changed her hairstyle a lot over the years, from playing with long blonde extensions to short blonde locks and even going brunette.

‘In April I’m taking a few months off from The Project desk. Chris and I and the kids are going on a family adventure together,” she said at the time.

“We’ve wanted to do it for a while, but the timing wasn’t right for many reasons, but we don’t think it’s ever going to be the perfect time to go.

“It’s something we really want to do before my son starts his final year at school, so we’re doing the second semester in the UK. So I’m off for a few months.’

She returned to The Project last week, after her three-month stay abroad.

Carrie said she was inspired by fellow project panelist Kate Langbroek, 56, who lived with her family in Bologna, Italy for two years.
