I must say this is simply stunning. She really stares at you with a kind of dreamy look. And the 'audrey hepburn' kind of make up finish it off. Those dark red lips look breathtaking with her pale skin.
Also I wanted to compliment you of the fact you got the focus on her eyes and not the black gauze in front of her. I always struggle with that kind of things.

If I must give one critique. For me personally her shoulderpart on the right side is a bit disturbing. Her clavicle seems kinda off. A bit to high, which makes me wonder how she places her shoulders. It gives a weird shadow, Especially if I compare with the left shoulderpart. Her left neck/shoulderpart seems beautifull pale and blank.

But really, wonderfull breathtaking picture! This is a fav for me :)

Her mood doesn't seem melancholy, or she'd be somewhat disheveled, indifferent to her appearance. To me, she is a femme fatale in full voguish fashion, a vamp ready to prowl for some unfortunate man. He's the one who will descend into melancholia.
Great shot. What a stunning beauty you are!
