FWIW, to me, as well - more fashion-oriented.

Someone [grin] said "If you're selling someting the model should NOT look at the camera, as that draws attention to her, not what she's selling."

This is a good example, top photo you're drawn to her leggs and clothes where the second photo says LOOK AT ME!!

I'd say more Fashion than Glamour. My usual definition of Glamour is "Does it look like Peter Gowland took it?" (Which dates me, I know...)

As far as eye contact goes, well, that opens up a whole new can of worms. Eye contact is one of those cultural, body language concepts which can be debated ad nauseum. I love eye contact in life and in Glamour photography! It's engaging, sexy, and draws me into the photograph more than anything else.

My opinion, others may disagree,
Doc

You may not like this but, I think you missed the mark on both counts. They are almost fashion and almost glamour. In Fashion you are promoting the clothes and everything should support that.

So in the first image I am thinking sweater, but then the legs draw my attention away. Crop them off and you have fashion. Better to have put them in nice pants.

Second image looks more like you are trying to celebrate the model, but you didn't light and soften her to flatter her as much as you could. Better lighting, posing, make up and then some PS work would have made that a much stronger image. Tell her not to strain so much.

I suggest re-shoot with these ideas in mind and see what you come up with. The model looks like she is good to work with and you look like you have some of the skill necessary, so it is a matter of attention to details now.

In the first shot, the black sweater is blocked up, that is, there is no indication of the texture of the weave except at the edges. That's just not allowable in a fashion shot which is trying to sell the garment. A little skimming light to bring out the sweater's texture would have kept it in the fashion realm.

Image number two suffers from a wrinkled and overlapped top. A fashion editor simply wouldn't use it. Eye contact is okay... but the garment has to be the main focus of the image, and it has to look good, even if that means "enhancing" the model.

So that leaves the images being glamour, IMHO.

See what happens when you quit reading photography magazines and start looking at Italian Vogue, V, and Elle for photo ideas.

I know... I'll be getting more EFFECTIVE IMAGES right?? wink wink...
I'll try to post some other pics later that are better oriented to either way...I was just plain confused about these two and wanted your opinion.

Thanks!
