What was the metering mode and what color and tone level was under the selected focus point?
By the wording of your post, I get the impression that only the model shots with red clothing were under exposed.
If in Matrix metering mode, the whole scene is used to calculate the exposure value, and then the spot level under the selected focus point is used to bias the exposure up or down to shift the focus point exposure to 18% grey. So if the tone level of the focus point is a little higher than the surrounding area, the whole scene exposure will be shifted downward. The metering sensor is RGB so it does consider color in its calculations.
