In the first image the model is definitely on ground.  I would argue that there is nothing wrong with having the shadow behind her, it grounds the image.  Magazine covers very often shot with the model leaning directly against a white wall.

Also the shadow in the second image is not an uncommon way to shoot models, even with the curve of the cove or seamless paper.  I do agree that the overall background tones could have been dealt with better.  Perhaps like this (Testino):
