* In the anime version of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'', Anthy wears a red dress during the Rose Duels as she's the bride and the prize of the tournament. The sexual and dangerous connotations become more and more apparent as the show goes on [[spoiler: as it's realized that she's [[SiblingIncest sleeping with her brother]], serves as his [[TheDragon Dragon]] and seduces and tempts various other characters (often at Akio's behest)]]
** Touga and [[spoiler: Akio]] are a RareMaleExample. Touga is associated with red roses, has red hair and his outfit is lined with red. [[spoiler: Akio]] wears red and drives a red sports car. They're both a bit of a manwhore, serve as the main MrFanservice and use sex and love to manipulate and charm everyone around them.

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': Late in "Twentieth Century Murdoch", it's New Year's Eve 1899 and Julia is slowly getting ready to accompany her husband Darcy to a private party hosted by one of his colleagues. Darcy chides her as she's fussing with jewelry to go with her dark, long-sleeved gown (they're long overdue at the party), then [[IWantMyBelovedtoBeHappy he tells her she should be with whom she chooses that night]] and leaves the room. She next appears at the constabulary's New Year's gala ball in an off-the-shoulder red dress with a beaded fringe, together with a red feathered hair ornament. After telling William about her decision to become a psychiatrist, he expresses doubt that she came there to tell him that, and she blurts out that she and Darcy have separated. Moments later, [[BigDamnKiss they're kissing, framed in a doorway with fireworks exploding in the sky around them]].

* Jilly Kitsinger from ''Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay'', playing the temptress role for a convicted paedophile and murderer, no less.
* ''Series/TheNanny'': The opening theme lampshades that Fran is Lady in Red: "She's the lady in red while everybody else is wearing tan". In the pilot episode, she comes down the stairs to a party wearing a red dress while the piano player sings "The Lady in Red".
* In ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'', Blanche's ''wedding gown'' was red. Considering Blanche, it suited--she admits that even ''she'' would not have been able to keep a straight face had she worn a white dress.
* ''Series/RobinHood'': In the series 2 episode "The Booby and the Beast", Marian wears a red dress to attract Count Friedrich at the insistence of the Sheriff.
* ''Series/TheXFiles''. Agent Scully wears a red cocktail dress in "Triangle", where she's [[AndYouWereThere an OSS spy in 1939]]. It's notable that this is the [[KissMeImVirtual first time Mulder kisses Scully]], and quite passionately too, though she still gives him a MegatonPunch in response.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'': This is what the local MsFanservice Santana picks for her prom dress. [[TheFashionista Kurt]] even lampshades it, saying it goes wonderfully with her personality.
* Daphne wears a stunning red dress in the classic ''{{Series/Frasier}}'' episode "Moon Dance", where she and Niles dance a [[MatingDance passionate tango]] and come within a hair's breadth of a LoveConfession, after their {{UST}} gets ramped up higher than it had ever been before.



* In C-drama ''Series/TheHolyPearl'', Mo Yin wears red throughout her EstablishingCharacterMoment (sentencing the main character to death), marking her as a more sensual and passionate character than her WomanInWhite sister.

Added DiffLines:

* The singer/showgirl/stripper in ''WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood''. She's even unofficially named "Red", probably as much from her hair as her costume (which is white in several of the shorts). In any case her clothing certainly draws attention.
