Lady with the beguiling smile

Lady with the beguiling smile
This photo was a gift from my friend, Stephanie Young Merzel, better known on flickr as justthismoment. She found it with some family photos, but no one could identify who the woman is. It may have been a friend of the family, or an extended family member.

Can anyone give me an educated guess as to the age of the photo?

The frame looks like 1920s to me, but it's a little hard to pinpoint more closely, because of the lack of clothes. If I had to guess I'd say probably late 1920s. Her hair is not typical, but it does look like she's wearing lipstick and maybe a little eye makeup - more common later in the decade, I think.
Love to hear other opinions, though.

Thank you, Deborah, for weighing in on this! I just now thought to google "Wilcox Photo Studio, Salt Lake City" and there was only one other undated image that I found. To me, it looks to be 1920s-era, though, so I'll bet you are correct.
