Naya Rivera said yes to altering her dress! The Glee actress attended last night’s SAG Awards wearing a beaded spring 2012 Naeem Khan gown with a sexy tweak—no sleeves! “While I am loving long sleeves these days, I felt that Naya should show a bit of skin,” the designer told InStyle.com. “She is young so I didn’t want her to be too covered up.” Rivera couldn’t be happier with the look. “I really loved the color. I’ve never worn baby blue before and I like the silhouette,” she told us on the red carpet. So, what do you think of the alteration?

It’s a Far East movement on the runways with designers showing China-inspired collections at New York and London Fashion Weeks. Ralph Lauren showed a red blazer with dragon embroidery; London designer Mary Katrantzou’s lineup included dresses with Chinese nautical prints; Naeem Khan said the book The Silk Road inspired the use of laser-cut red leather (China’s color) on black dresses; and Oscar de la Renta’s coats featured Chinese silk ornate prints. “It was religions of the Silk Road, how business and religion met together, and the East and the West,” Khan told InStyle of his inspiration backstage at his fashion show. “I wondered what I can take from the East, and how I live here.” Perhaps this means we’ll start to see lots more red on the red carpet…
