This is just a quick LR preset on it, not a thorough edit... but it will give you the idea.
I chose BW for the series not even so much for the "classic" look (I deliberately want to avoid being self-consciously "retro") but because I feel it mitigates the eye-catching quality of the awards and decorations. We have DA photos (and frequently, upon retiring, showcases and the like) to serve the purpose of "showcasing the awards," so I don't feel that these shots need to be about drawing the eye there. Notice in the color version how your eye is slightly more drawn to the rank, the ribbons, and so on, while the BW version is more about her expression. These portraits are about the person, and the uniform is an important part of that, but it is not about the uniform.
