View in slideshow

At the Salute the Runway Spring 2015 fashion show, we got to see something very rare for New York Fashion Week: real women walking down the runway. And these weren't just your everyday ladies — they are all retired veterans (army chic!). The unique presentation was sponsored by Fatigues to Fabulous, an organization that helps female soldiers transition to civilian life. And this opportunity was a dream come true for the participants. "You just don't think you're going to be in this situation — getting all glammed up by professionals who believe in what you've done," said veteran/model Heather Kline. "The empowerment that comes from this is almost really emotional." Each woman was styled by a hair and makeup expert to achieve her perfect night-out beauty look. Steal all the real-girl beauty secrets from backstage when you read on.
