I'm not a fan, but when I saw the thumbnails, I was ready to be blown away. Clicked on them, and was disappointed. Her face looks, well, blah. For such a dramatic dress, her makeup should be dramatic, as well, but instead she looks like a 17 year-old farm girl.
I like that effect. I think the juxtaposition of her comparatively bare face, which we aren't used to seeing, and the very dramatic outfit is interesting, unusual and quite lovely, in these photographs. That probably wouldn't look good in real life, but here it works... I think it creates interest, it's such a contrast. And I think she's pretty; not stunning, facewise, but pretty.
