position the model in front of a bright window. Meter for ambient light - then use the tiniest of fill light with an off-camera strobe on the (part of) the model's face

I don't see any "retouching" at all but do see a great need for same. If these two photos were posted on a critique forum they would get blasted with a long list of defects.

If you really want to emulate this style, just point and shoot with no regard for exposure, white balance, framing, cropping, and publish results straight out of camera.

This is just a softbox over the photographers right shoulder. I don't see anything special/unique processing wise. It's just a matter of getting the WB right and having a color profile for you camera to make sure that colors are represented accurately. It's likely that image has only had some modest blemish removal and sharpening in post, and maybe some slight skin smoothing.

Re: any ideas on getting this look?

So, my 0,02 $.

I never really cared about WB, as I like to set it fairly close in one set, nd hen tighthen things up once I open the file, using curves.

It was shot with a combo of softbox and natural light. WB to "flash" or "auto", I'd say somewhere around the 5600ish mark, but then the colors were offset, probably in camera (check your camera WB offsetsettings) to a slightly more reddish tint.

As far as the skin, it looks very moist, so it's most likely that the make-up artist applied lots of moisturizer and highlighter.

Saturation on the clothes was definitely pumped up a notch, and that's pretty much it.

The other two, one softbox from above and shoot away.

I like all of them, especially the asian girl, but in the last one over-done eyes really ruin it for me.

P.S. If you're looking for little Ozzy inspiration, http://www.viviensmodels.com.au/ has some more great images.
