I love this. It's like modernized classic.

The pose and clothing is classic rococo'esque with a mixture of old Japan, while the makeup is modern.

The lighting in this photo is spot on. The model is lit evenly with a slight edge fade out that makes the picture that much more unique.

You're choice of flower makes her face and frankly the whole image pop. Also nude nails was a great choice. I feel it would have distracted from the image as a whole.

The background feels off to me. The color choice is great, but the pattern seems...pixelated? I know that's not necessarily possible in a photo and I am certain you didn't put the background in digitally. Pixelated is the only word that comes to mind to describe it.

However that is the only off thing about the whole photo. It's extremely beautiful!

Beautiful. Reminds me of Frida Kahlo.
I have always wanted to do a shoot like this.

True dat. Frida was beautiful in her own way, however. =P
I guess what the model is wearing is something Frida would have worn.

Well... you ask for a criticism. I think this is a well made portrait, a bit like an old American painting of a well to do lady. I like the color combination, especially the background wall covering and the brown old fashioned table top. I also like the expression in the model's eyes. It's somewhat tragic, like she is a little bored with her life and at the same time slightly wondering. Like a woman in the old days locked in a less than adventurous marriage (note the sensual lips). You caught that perfectly. But I think the lighting on her face is a little flat and the color on her temples shows a bit too much of her make up. The idea is probably to reflect those hair-flowers of the same color, but although those flowers make the portrait very special, they are not in a position on the head to make the purple really reflect on the skin. But overall a very nice portrait.
