* Scarlet red in [[{{Kimono}} Kimonese]] stands for sexuality and vigour of youth, being a suitable background colour for a young girl's ''furisode'' or the wedding costume's overcoat ''uchikake'', as well as accessories -- however, red ''underkimono'' has been downright scandalous for many a decade, and the only people who get away with wearing such are geisha and such.

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.
