Military Caregivers and Wounded Female Soldiers Get Celebrity Makeovers Ahead of Veterans Day

Celebrity stylist Mary Alice Stephenson gave a group of wounded female veterans and veteran caregivers a red carpet makeover this week as part of a salute to those who take care of America’s service men and women.

“It’s been such an honor for all of us, I have brought together a world-renowned styling team, all my friends and favorite people in fashion to come surround these women with love,” Mary Alice Stephenson told FOX411.com.

Stephenson teamed up with the Bob Woodruff foundation to provide the women with a makeover for the red carpet at the Stand Up for Heroes event at the Beacon Theater in New York City. The event featured performances by Bruce Springsteen, Ricky Gervais and Jon Stewart.

FOX411 followed Cindy Parsons, who is the spokeswoman for “Warriors Speak” with the Wounded Warrior Project and is also the mother of a wounded veteran ,as she was pampered by the team. Parsons, who helped rehabilitate her son after he sustained a traumatic brain injury and a bilateral amputation, was one of the fifty women who were treated to celebrity-worthy makeovers.

“I was invited along with my son who is a Wounded Warrior,” Parsons told FOX411. “He was nominated to do the Bob Woodruff Foundation’s Stand Up for Heroes and I was asked to do a total makeover and I was totally overwhelmed.”

Stylists picked out a glitzy dress for Parsons from the clothing all donated by Sears and K-Mart, and was also treated to full hair and makeup from the Christian Dior and L’Oreal team.

“Cindy is a star, she is a hero; we are honored to work with her,” Stephenson said. “ All of the sacrifices that she has made, that her son has made fighting for our country, we’re just honored.”
