Can you help me decide on what lens is the best for taking this kind of picture?

Indeed MPCAKES, it has 85mm 1.2 written all over.
But this could be done with:
50mm 1.2
50mm 1.4
50mm 1.8
85mm 1.8
135mm 2
200mm 2
300mm 2.8 (F/4 version is not so shallow)
Or by post-processing with a good photoshop-technique :D
Good luck
Greetings,
Alain,

1) right clicked on the picture, selected Original size.
2) right clicked on that enlarged picture, selected FxIF Data add on for Firefox.

Not on a crop. Most likely not on FF, either. The perspective distortion is quite heavy in this shot. My guess is no longer than 50mm on FF, or 35mm on crop. What ever it was, was shot wide open, or close to it.

Greetings,
Alain,

No way it is longer than 85mm on FF. Her nose is too big for her face. Her head is too big for her body. You just don't get that kind of perspective distortion out of long lenses. Short and wide-open.

Photoshop.

If it were blurring caused by a narrow depth of field then the left shoulder (being further away) would be more blurred than the right. But the amount of blur looks the same.

That really is the only explanation.

Excellent call! Upon looking closely, you can see in-focus hair near her left ear that is further back than the OOF hair further off her head. Nice job though.

Even without getting into the details, this really has a software blur look as opposed to the natural look of a big aperture DOF. I'm not crazy about it but other than that the photo is nice and probably looked good before this edit.
