Definitely not the original or the moon. In the end I'd pick either the black background (for the contrast - she is lovely and has very bright teeth and eyes) or the blue background for it's neutrality.

i'd probably say the blue looks natural and suits the lighting on the model - the black is well its obvious somehow that it was done in photoshop same with the pure white - the moon.....very 80's

better to get it right out of the camera first time though so next time consider pulling the model forward slightly and putting a flash on the background to blow it out or simply find a nicer more neutral background

my 2 cents

Blue background for me, too - white is too contrasty, textured background is distracting as is the moon - black would be OK if she weren't wearing black! Not enough contrast in no 1, too much in the others as the eyes and teeth are too bright - they look unnatural, but the skin tones are fine. Otherwise nice photos of an attractive model.

Thanks so much.

I prefer the photo with no background, black background may work with different color dress.

I like the graduated blue background the most, but I guess I'm in the minority when I say that my #2 choice is the original with the textured background. Either way, it's a beautiful model, and your lighting is superb.
