I super like what you have achieved in this shot, especially the way you have combined colour, skin, and facial expression. I do have a few questions relative to highlights and shadows. I can't be totally sure, but I detect some highlight bleeding on the edges, cheekbones, top of the dress, etc. Then, regarding the shadows, it seems to me your subject's lower left arm is just a tiny bit too dark. Finally, I wondered about the reflected lights in the sunglasses. Is it too bright, if not too close together, thus producing a strange look. But I am exaggerating because, believe me, I am absolutely taken by this portrait. Kudos.

Thank you so much mate for the kind words
the lighting was a beauty dish which helped to light the top more than the lower bit, hence the dark lower left arm.
it is also the cause of the white spots on the glasses
I just dont get what you mean about the highlight bleeding , might be the screen calibration difference, please clear what you meant and I am happy to answer
Best regards
