That's funny. I think I know that model and photographer and who it might have been shot for.

Re: Lighting

I can't comment on the particular system, but it looks like a broad diffuse source above the lens in a classic butterfly position, two "kickers", one each left and right of the model and behind her, and a background light creating the glow on the seamless behind her. Thee may be a fill light also, but without a larger pic it is hard to tell.
A side note...the kickers obviously do nice things to her hair but sometimes on a female model may be unflattering on the arms.

Re: Lighting

Oh sorry - nothing to it! Two striplight with grid behind model facing cam low power. Quite big box close and approx 45 deg. up and over camera medium power. Narrow snooth behind model on backgnd low power. Proberly black on sides to high contrast, or a big studio with black walls. There you go! =)
