Does "the loss of all illusion" refer to her expression?

Hi,
In the first sentence, does "the loss of all illusion" refer to her expression?

"Her expression is a combination of seductive and aroused, with an overlay of slight amusement meant to convey sophistication, the loss of all illusions long ago. Its the sort of expression that looks devastating in a photograph but becomes awkward when it's maintained over real time."

    Yes, the phrase "the loss of all illusions" is the meaning her expression should convey: she's experienced. But remember that the writer described her earlier as "media-taught", so the reality is that the girl has practised and copied this expression from pictures. Maintaining this "come hither" look in real life looks awkward - this shows her inexperience.
