You can easily edit out stray hairs too which can be a distraction. There is a hair on the right side coming down from her forehead and two that seem particularly distracting on the left side under her eye(the one leading right up to her eye and the one kind of curving over above the top of the scarf/collar). I might clean up the dark stray hairs by her chin too.

Really awesome framing, and I like the bright caught-by-paparazzi look. I love how comfortable she is with the camera - a bit Marilynesque. I agree with Joshua about shooting up the nose, though. She happens to have a cute one, but it's not generally a very flattering angle for anyone. Also, there is just a bit of an odd greenish tinge in the fur. Don't know if that is intentional or an unwanted byproduct of pp'ing.

One thing to be careful of when composing a portrait is to not shoot up the nose. It is unflattering and awkward to look at. The eyes appear dead with how they are open, or perhaps very sleepy. I would personally have them open a bit more. So same composition but bring the face forward so it is more straight on and open the eyes a bit more and I think this could be a very nice portrait.

I'm not big into portraits, but the lighting is definitely not right...Maybe from another angle. I do like the composure. I like the model and the pose.

Very evocative ... I think the under-saturated look works well, especially with the framing by the dark hair.

ETA: It looks like you may have used a ring-light/flash -- it makes the catchlights look a bit odd to me, though it could be intentional ...
