I got it to look a little better, but you have a few problems that are causing issues. It is underexposed about a stop and you are shooting in mixed lighting. When you shoot in mixed lighting there is almost always going to be a cast to the image.

what I did was create a curve adjustment layer in the color blending mode. Added some Cyan and added some Blue to take out the red/yellow cast in her face.

Re: orange orange orange :(

Many, many ways to fix this...

I choose Hue sat in a new layer. Selected reds, then used the dropper to select the skin. Hue: +4 :: Lightness: -15. I agree with ArtIsUgly, definetly underexposed. So I made a brightness and contrast layer @ brightness: +65.

You may want to calibrate your brightness and blacks on your monitor. The outfit is blacked out... plus the underexposure

lovely girl though...

Hope this helps,
-Keven

Re: orange orange orange :(

I used a curves adjustment layer in photoshop to lighten up the image and then a color balance adjustment layer I adjusted the color
