Backlight is a very interesting light for portrait and glamour ... but you have to meter the light in the face of the model to avoid this kind of light trouble.

I don't see the slight underexposure of the face as much a problem as is the flare being caused from the massive over exposure of the light coming directly into the camera lens. Metering for the face would have called for more exposure, which would only serve to increase the amount of flare.

The only solution I see (as others mentioned) is adding fill light strong enough so you can decrease the exposure enough to bring the broad highlights (flare) from the strong, large, window light down to a more reasonable level. (large reflectors *might* work) If the fill was from close to the camera position it would also give a more flattering (and flatter) light to the face. Turning the head slightly or bringing the subject closer to the camera (and further from the window) or using her hair, or a combination thereof will help block off the back light from hitting the side of her nose. This would anyhow be less distracting when the light ratio comes down.

Another suggestion is getting your model to relax her eyes a bit before shooting. This can help eliminate the "deer in the headlights" type of look. I have found that girls with large, pretty eyes often tend to play them up too much for the camera. With digital cameras it is so easy to check for things like that during the shoot.

Your model is a very pretty girl with a Penelope Cruz type of look. Shoot her every chance you get! :-)

BTW, you can improve your existing shot quite a bit with a little Photoshop work.
