SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Senior citizens in Chula Vista lit up the runway at St. Paul's Plaza, a senior living community.

It was the center's first fashion show and eight residents were transformed into models.

Each had makeup, hair, and wardrobe provided thanks to Macy's.

“Today’s fashion show is all about friendships," said Mary Johnson with the community outreach team. "Friendships are just as important as taking good care of yourself, exercising, and good nutrition. As we get older friendships get even more important."

Ladies who modeled said the day made them feel special and confident.

“A lot of people when they get to be our age don’t want to do anything different. But I still want to do different things!" said model and resident Nancy Curcio.

St. Paul's Plaza is an aging in place community, offering independent, assisted, and memory support.
