Very nice composition and color. Do you have other shoots from the same session?

Beauty?  Nice model, but I am not feeling the bright light on the side of her face, it looks almost like it is color clipping.  The face is too dark for my liking and the white balance doesn't feel good, but I always seem to not feel right about Nikon colors somehow but that's probably me just being used to Canon colors.

Keep at it and thanks for allowing us a peak.

Don't care for the jewelry over her eye (gratuitous) or the messy hair. Also, focus is on the jewelry, leaving other eye and face a bit soft.

On the contrary, I increased the focus on the jewelry.  Why else is it there in such abundance.

Indeed, why is it there in such abundance? What does it bring to the picture?

Without the jewelry, it is just another picture of a pretty face, one picture among millions.

It is not a famous face.  It is not a face conveying emotion of any particular nature.  It is not a face with lighting and shadow and contrast of extraordinary effects.   So, intended or not, the jewelry, the background color, the pose, the clear right eye, the left eye behind the strands all add up to a portrait that compels a second look and maybe even more than that.

You will disagree, but that is how I see it.

Yes, the combination of the camera and the lens identified is beautiful. The model and the photograph are not, in my opinion.

The model looks grumpy like a spoiled kid, and too made-up (props are too prominent, light is too intensely colored, hair is Hollywoodish unnatural, "look at me" jewelry that covers the eye and must give the model a headache), and the photograph is not attractive but merely asking for attention. There is no story being told by the photograph, and it is not a photo that one (me, anyway) would want on my wall.
