From casual-cool ‘fits to downright glam looks, Kaori Oinuma proves time and time again that she owns the color red.
Kaori Oinuma arriving on the red carpet of the A Very Good Girl wearing that plunging red suit was a blazing hot moment in pop culture this year, and she consistently proves she’s a vision in red. The 23-year old actress can look soft, chic, elegant, edgy, or downright sultry in shades of red, and she and her styling team knows so.
Red can mean a multitude of things—passion, courage, strength, action, and desire, among others. The bold color is striking it and of itself, but when on Kaori? A match made in heaven. Whether she’s on the stage, on a red carpet, or just out on the town, Kaori slays in shades of red—and we have the proof.
Styled by MESMYRRHIZED (Myrrh Lao To), Kaori looked devilishly good in a structured, double-breasted tube peplum top from East of Eden and satiny Thian Rodriguez Sanguis pantaleggings. Trust—she was captivating on that ASAP stage.
P-POP IDOL-ESQUE FOR ASAP
Taking on an edgier look styled by Myrrh Lao To and Joshua Galang, Kaori donned a red sweetheart corset top and a studded gladiator-inspired skirt from Thian Rodriguez with a thick bejeweled choker. The mix of styles, patterns, and contrasting colors could easily be overpowering, but the look was cohesive and reminiscent of K-pop and P-pop idols’ epic stage outfits.
For a media conference for A Very Good Girl (2023), Kaori opted for a back-baring VICFAJATIN outfit with strappy ties, bedazzled mesh, and scrunched fabrics for a bold and edgy look apt for the dark comedy.
DRAPED HOLLYWOOD GLAM
Kaori’s modeled for formalwear brand Apartment 8 Clothing before, looking elegant, and this draped, deep maroon asymmetrical cocktail dress with a train made her look ready to stride down a red carpet and accept armfuls of awards.
Red is her color, and 2023 is her year. Kaori’s graduation story is as heartwarming as it is inspiring, and there was no other graduation regalia color as fitting as red. While red is one of the most common colors to use for graduation regalia as it represents knowledge, power, courage, and determination—it’s a nice little coincidence as Kaori herself represented all those things as she made her way through school.

Fresh-faced and windswept, Kaori felt GGSS (“gandang ganda sa sarili”) in this TikTok video—and rightfully so. A simple red top brought out her natural flush and contrasted perfectly with her dark hair, giving ultimate it-girl vibes. Do you need any more convincing she owns the color red?
A VERY GOOD GIRL
This blazer-and-pants combo Kaori wore for the A Very Good Girl (2023) premiere went viral—and for a very good reason. One step into any room and the actress could turn the temperature up hundreds of degrees. Her messy bob with bangs, smokey eye makeup, and showstopping, sternum-baring custom Kat Corpus Atelier pantsuit was a masterful combination crafted by her and her team, perfectly topped off with her stellar confidence. The end result? A look that was absolutely lethal, just like her character in the movie.
