In this case, I would say that a tighter crop would make the image more powerful, and the composition "better". Some off the top, and some off BOTH sides, until the model becomes less "lost" in the background. About 25-30% off, total, in my opinion.

The stark white logo against the black background draws the viewers eye away from the subject.  Not good.  My preference would be to soften it and make it translucent.

I agree sort of with the above on cropping.  Since the models's face and eyes are in shadow, the photo would be strongest if cropped all the way to a bodyscape where the lighting is good.  Or, the model's face and eyes should also have good light in keeping with the light on her body.
