Is red bad to wear?

Hey Ladies, I always lurk, since I am not a photographer, I love seeing all your pics. I figured who best to ask then you ladies. I am going to a photo shoot thursday. I want it to be causal so were probably doing Jeans, (maybe Jeanskirts for the girls) and tops. Is it bad to wear red shirts? I've heard the colour isn't good near the face. Both my girls are pretty fair, my eldest is blond and very pale.

Thanks for any input!

Honestly- I would say it's fine as long as it goes with your location and the color looks good on you.

Both my girls have had Christmas photos in red dresses and they look great, I don't think red is an issue as long as you get the right shades to suit your skin tone and setting.

I agree that it has to be the right light with red otherwise it can be a colourcast nightmare, lol! Deep reds work nice, but bright reds not so much.
