The Fashionable☆Vivid Girl (オシャレ☆ヴィヴィッドガール) is the 113th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 12th episode of its "3rd Season" (
Akari Ōzora, Sumire Hikami, and Hinaki Shinjō are going to perform on Starlight Academy's Christmas Party's Aikatsu! Christmas Stage, and for this event, Hinaki wants to perform in a Vivid Kiss Premium...
Orihime chats with Johnny-sensei about Christmas, which is coming up in a week. As he is busy ironing an outfit, they discuss how Sakura is in charge of the committee this year.
In another room a bunch of classmates are setting down boxes of items. Sakura comes in to introduce herself to everyone and reminds them that a week remains until Christmas, but she has also come to inform them of the opening in the Aikatsu Christmas Stage. Juri reveals that she can't since she will be busy with the year-end special episode of Aikatsu Sensei. She also has rehearsals for the Fashion Show that takes place the second of January. She promises to at least make it to the Christmas Party though, and takes off after Hinaki reminds her of her plans for the day. But before she leaves the room, Juri insists that they should try out for the Christmas Stage. The girls decide to go for it, but Hinaki decides that if this is the case then she has to find her own Premium Dress to go along with theirs. Akari and Sumire are surprised that she does not have one yet, but she does not have a proper response as to explain.
The girls head back to Akari and Sumire's dorm room, where Hinaki begins to discuss how they helped Ichigo with the Great Starmiya Ichigo Festival. She thinks it would be nice if they could make themselves work the same way Ichigo, Aoi, and Ran did back then, as well as there is something she wants to try. But instead of telling them what it is, she compliments the wonderful tea Sumire made. They discuss it's Christmas appeal until Akari interupts to ask what it was.
Hinaki goes on to say that she wants to perform a Heroine Appeal. She explains that amongst each brand's fairy-tale theme is a heroine dress; based on the main characters of each tale. With a complete set of Heroine Dresses a Heroine Appeal can be achieved. This is why she wants to get her own Premium Dress, to achieve this special Appeal.
Later on, Hinaki and Otome has just finished some filming work. The director compliments their jobs well done and tells them about the upcoming DVD release before he tells them to take things easily. Otome grabs onto Hinaki's arm and begins to tell her about a hot chocolate shop a third of the way down the hill and tells her that they should grab a drink. She runs off full of glee, while Hinaki questions running so far back up the hill before trailing behind her.
The girls head out to the nearby park and sit down to enjoy their drinks. Otome decides that she will have to bring a drink to Makoto, since she is sure he'll love it too. This causes Hinaki to ask her if it was hard to obtain a Premium Dress, and she voices how Akari and Sumire both went to their Top Designers to get their Dresses Made. Otome insists that it is hard, then she recalls how it felt to wear her first Premium Dress. Hinaki is sure she is right, and she voices that if a Top Designer has given someone a Premium Dress, then it means the designer has approved of the person. Otome asks Hinaki if she is alright, and she insists that she is fine.
While Akari and Sumire are setting up, they discuss the Vivid Kiss Top Designer, Kayoko. They begin to discuss Hinaki's plans of being on stage together to perform a Heroine Appeal, and they really want to help Hinaki obtain her Premium Dress. Sakura recalls how Mikuru had to raise a rare flower for Kayoko in order to obtain her Premium Dress, causing them to realize that they have to show Kayoko how earnest Hinaki feels about Vivid Kiss.
The trio go to speak to Orihime about meeting Kayoko. They explain their plans, earning Akari a minor teasing from Johnny-sensei about the appeal. He compliments how well she is growing now, while Hinaki admits that she has never been able to find Kayoko before. She asks Orihime to track her down for her so that she can show Kayoko her feelings for Vivid Kiss, at least once more time.
This surprises them, and Hinaki explains how she approached Kayoko three years ago in the past; only to be refused. She begins to explain how she came across Vivid Kiss, one day while observing a magazine. In which she saw colorful outfits and decided to wear one for an upcoming performance. She decided to ask Kayoko for a Premium Dress, but struggled to determine what outfit to wear to it; until she came across one she could copy from a magazine.
She went to Kayoko, who asked her wha the notes had been on recent Fashion Points, and she points out how Hinaki copied the coord from page 57 of this months Fashion Mini. This disappointed Hinaki, although she claims there isn't anything wrong with a little imitation. But she wont hand over the Premium Dress because Hinaki is still missing something. She refuses to tell her what it is, but tells her to return when she determines it.
Orihime wonders if this means that Hinaki may have figured it out then, if she wishes to see her now. Hinaki is very confident that she will be accepted this time, so with admiration Orihime decides to help her out. She points out that Kayoko will be holding a party the following day, but she will only allow those who are deemed fashionable enough to enter. Johnny points out that her parties are known for strict fashion checks, while Orihime mentions that if Hinaki can be approved then there is a good chance she may be able to get her request.
Later the trio head out to go shopping to find something for Hinaki to wear. First they try something punk, then try something soft and delicate. They try one more outfit, but she still thinks something is off. They decide to take a break and have some tea before going out to try some more shops. Hinaki thanks Akari and Sumire for their help and explains that it was because of them that she gained the courage to face Kayoko again. When she had first been refused by her, it was very shocking. So much that she assumed she would give up on ever obtaining one, but after she met the girls, Aikatsu became fun again. She points out that next week will be the first time they get to be on stage together after they have become friends, which is another reason she wants to obtain a Premium Dress. With that they get up and they resume their search.
When the event arrives, Hinaki, Akari, and Sumire observe everyone riding the boat with them that will be leading them to the Party Location. Hinaki is very excited, and when they arrive they head over to the fashion check area. Hinaki is seen by Kayoko, so she begins to show what she's learned by posing and showing off her attire. She points out the fashion points of Flair, with her outfit, then she shows them something fun to wear with Akari's, and friendship, showing off Sumire's outfit.
Everyone is amazed by the girls outfits, but suddenly they slip over water that has spilled nearby, accidentally getting grape juice all over their outfits. They momentarily panic until Hinaki gets an idea and starts to rip off the stained parts of clothing. Akari and Sumire do this and modify their outfits to create something unique, which Hinaki claims was the object she missed in the past; a fashion sense all on her own. Kayoko comments on this and she grants the girls entry. But as Hinaki heads inside, Kayoko stops her to ask her to help bring this party to it's next level. At first Hinaki is confused, but she quickly understands and runs behind stage to change. She puts on a coord and appears, performing to "Good Morning my dream".
After the performance, Akari and Sumire catch up to Hinaki. They are approached by Kayoko, who tells them she was inspired by her performance for a Premium Dress, so she tells her that she better be prepared for the Christmas Party since she wants her to wear it. The trio embrace while Hinaki voices her excitement for the Christmas Party.
