It's certainly not a bad compromise. The overall effect is nice.

Of course if you look at contemporary fashion photography, anything  
goes. The end result is all that counts. Even Richard Avedon, who  
might be considered the father of modern fashion photography, engaged  
in some distinctly over the top looks, including ultra high contrast  
and blown highlights. Although I have to say, I like his more  
conventional work far better than his extreme stuff.
