Honestly, this looks like an intentional failure to me but I tend to be a bit cynical at times. I'd say that lens is focused several feet in front of the model.
edit ..... When a camera has trouble tracking focus on an object coming towards the lens it typically back-focuses, it doesn't jump to a point three feet in front of a moving subject.
I had that happen on one combo - 5D + 35/1.4L. The lens focused accurately on my other bodies and all my other lenses focused accurately on the 5D. It wasn't close. In the shot below, the focus point is right on his face. The error here is about 6 depths of field, and that was typical and consistent.
I sent both body and lens in for calibration (both were in warranty) and haven't had a problem since, and none of my other lenses have either. Weird, huh?
