This feels very fashionable in a number of ways, first of all the pose feels very couture runway with the over exaggerated shoulder and shape of the back. That gives it a very "high art" sensibility. I tend to enjoy that though I think it might be lost on a number of people who don't spend time following runway fashion.

I also feel like the outfit itself is really the main focus here with the intricate buckles and leatherwork. You as a model are clearly vital to the image but it feels more about the clothing than the model. If you don't have a good model the clothes will look ill fitted and awkward, so there is a lot to be said for having a skilled model and one who fits the visual style of the clothing. However a good model let's the clothes speak and I think that is what is happening here. That also gives it a very fashionable aesthetic.

I think the makeup and pose are good choices. I also enjoy the backdrop which gives texture but goes away pretty easily. I don't know if this piece would lend itself to being on a more decorated set as I think it would take away from the outfit so I think all the choices here are pretty good.

There are some lighting issues here that bother e (thus the lower technique score). The image loses something in the bottom third, the darkness around the hips and below is not enough to fully remove the area from view but enough to make it very unsatisfying visually. The lack of contrast which makes the top so nice makes the bottom blah.

There is also a warm orange color creeping up from the bottom which I find off putting. It doesn't seem to me to serve a purpose and makes this warm spot where I feel the only warm value should be on the model. The orange is simply distracting, it also doesn't seem to match well with the red, it just seems to make that bottom third really muddled.

Overall it seems like a nice piece that with some lighting changes could be stellar.
What do you think?

Sassy. Sexy. And if you need help, ANY help at all getting out of that outfit please, PLEASE!, let me know. I would drop what I'm doing, stop working or wake up at any hour of night. After that, I promise you won't want to change your clothes again without my help again. Yes, I *can* promise that!

Another great composition: makeup, hair, outfit, pose, background...all work together well. Nicely done.

The background might be a bit bland, but the pose and the outfit make this flaw very forgiving.
