Image Help - How would you shoot these?

First of all, I joined this site 2 years ago...but have never even been on here, for reasons I don't even know why. I come to you now, seeking some advice. It's been a long time since I've done a shoot, almost 2 years now. I've got a friend who wants some shots done though, and the ideas came from a magazine. What I'd like is your ideas on how to best try and duplicate these shots, as my lighting skills/interpretation are a little rusty. any suggestions are welcome, and thanks in advance.

These shots are from SHOW magazine, I'm going to post a lighting diagram after each shot, to show how I think it was lit, please feel free to let me know if I'm wrong, and how I would go about trying to duplicate the lighting.

First up

my guess at a setup:

How I think it was done:
Rose colored background
softbox on both sides, 45 degree angle
ringflash for main model

background was smoothed out in photoshop afterward.

Second shot:

my guess at the setup:

how I think it was done:

haven't figured out the background light... either 2 softboxes, and then a vigneete applied to darken the edges, or maybe snoots or softboxes with grids.

Beauty dish to photographers left, probably 6-7 feet up
softbox for fill on camera right
photoshop smoothing done to background and model's skin.

anyone think differently? sorry, IMG tags are turned off for some reason, so only the links show. I also apologize if this is the wrong forum.
