The main light is directly in front of the subject so it is flat frontal lighting that destroys shadows from the drape and folds of the garment and the weave of the fabric.

The fill light is side lighting the subject, keeping the shadows on the legs and floor from going pure black.

Huh?

The key light (or 'main' light) in this set of pictures is the hard light coming from  the right of set. This is the light that is creating the shadows. The fill light is the soft frontal light that is filling these shadows.
