I'm also visualizing this being shot in slow motion with a fan (or wind) blowing her hair and thin sundress. Or am I reading too far into it...

Soft diffusion on the lens, good rim/hair light/ soft even lighting on the face, to minimize blemishes, and make her face not over-exposed, but try to keep it the focal point in the scene with make up, costuming, set design. And, also, go for a good eyelight and position it, I'd say, upper right of her pupils but try to keep it the only light reflected in the eye.
I also like the slo motion, which reminds me of Braveheart where, I think, they shot most of Gibson's wife at something like 32 fps, just slightly slowing her down in her singles whenever Wallace was watching her.

Slow-mo, defused, taxi driver, Old school Hollywood look.
I'm still a little confused on lighting the eyes correctly to achieve twinkle.

Eye light and diffusion. Basically a light source which reflects in the eyes and fill in under the brows a bit and makes them come to life. It can be a light or just a white piece of material if it's close enough in. The eyes are highly reflective so you don't need too much. Also look into an Obie Light.
