Most probably both too tight. Not too sure about the processing either.

Thanks for c&c ;)

Maybe this was a look you were going for, but the WB seems off to me, her skin is sort of a yellowish/brownish tint.

The framing seems OK in #1 but the flat lighting and sideways pose don't do it for me. I much prefer #2 but there is too much headroom and saturation a tad high. The skin also looks overexposed and tone might be off a bit. Your focus is so sharp, I can see cat hair (I am guessing) on the blue top :)
I would crop it and change exposure, saturation as follows (super eyes BTW):

The face on shot does her much more justice. Her jaw line in the second makes her look like she is chubby, which she isn't. In fact the difference of how she looks between the two images is pretty amazing.

Agree the color is off. I worked on it a bit and couldn't get it 'normal' to my eye. Nothing in the frame for a WB eyedropper. When I got the skin looking better the blues were too dominant. I don't care for the reclining shot and the portrait has too much head room.

Looks like the saturation might have been reduced quite a bit too.

But they are sharp. And her eyes are amazing.

Thank you for the comments guys. I tried that sort of "cinema" look (some preset in Exposure 5) but it indeed puts the wb off and the skin is too yellowish. Thanks for the editing Spike44, I like that version, I'll try to redo the editing closer to that. ;)

EDIT: I think the white balance is less messed up with this kind of effect:
