In terms of concept and symbolism, this trope is the polar opposite of the WomanInBlack. A Lady in Red is sexy. She might be morally ambiguous but she mostly displays a form of sexual availability, a signal that she's ready to fulfill a guy's sexual desires. The Woman in Black may be sexy and enticing but, in sharp contrast to her crimson counterpart, she is also openly menacing and sexually unavailable, especially if her outfit covers her whole body. In any case, the Woman in Black clearly conveys that approaching her is ''not'' a good idea, whereas the Lady in Red ''means'' to arouse lust.

* ''ComicBook/{{Crimson}}'' had two prominent ladies in red: the resident monster hunter / LoveInterest Scarlet who wore a all-red sexy combat suit evocative of LittleRedRidingHood and the BigBad Lisseth, dressing in a long-red gown sporting some AbsoluteCleavage. While both qualified as MsFanservice, they fit the trope in different ways with Lisseth being [[TheVamp openly seductive]], while Scarlet served as TheHero's LoveInterest. Scarlet's ancestor [[HighClassCallGirl Marraine]] also used to be one, wearing a red cape that marked her as off-limits to any lower louts and available only to noblemen.
