If I see it correctly, in the second picture you aimed lower. So more of the black dress and the black bike was in the middle of the sensor. Depending on your metering mode this can have a dramatic effect, worst with being on spot metering.

Generally black and white clothings fools the light meter, as does back-lighting. Therefore always activate the histogram in playback (shows you the brightness-distribution).

And a general advise: Try to avoid to place your subject in the middle of the frame. -> Rule of thirds.
