Glamour & Art Nude sort-of imply studio, so you won't be lugging lenses around too much. I suggested the 24-70, and probably the short end of the 70-200 for this, but if you want primes, it's really your choice. The 50mm 1.4G should be quite capable (despite not being in the D800 hitlist). Then again, you might want to use a 20, 24 35 or 85mm prime. Probably not the 20 or 24 for glamour, unless you're feeling a bit retro.
I'm not convinced the 14-24 is the only landscape lens, either. The f/2.8 is good, but who uses f/2.8 for landscapes?
