BEAVERTON, Ore. – A military nurse got a special makeover in Beaverton Wednesday after her mother won a contest on the reality TV show, “Project Runway.”

Seth Aaron Henderson – the winner of Project Runway’s season 7, led a two-hour styling session with Mary Anne Merkely at the Beaverton-Hillsdale Fred Meyer store.

Merkely’s mom actually won the contest but then she passed on the prize to her daughter.

Merkely is a military nurse stationed at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Wash. She said she loves to shop and today’s makeover was especially exciting because her husband was able to join her side. He is also a soldier and just returned from Afghanistan on Tuesday.
