You might want to look at the stars of the media she likes especially their photos from earlier in their careers (because I'm old, the only one that enters my mind is Taylor Swift) would probalby give you some ideas.  An off the wall idea might be to find some old hollywood promotional shots and try out butterfly/paramount lighting (smiles weren't always common in those styles as well).  Finally, she's young enough to have probably excellent skin, so could also try a single beauty dish above the camera (and perhaps a reflector below) probably enhanced with a lens that has a little uncorrected spherical abberation.
