While ruffled dresses might have been the over-arching theme at last weekend's 2010 Golden Globes, it was beaded gowns that were turning heads on the red carpet at last night's 2010 SAG Awards.

We first spotted actress and face of Dior, Marion Cotillard in a short white number by Elie Saab Haute Couture which featured a heavily beaded one-shouldered bodice -- not unlike the single-strapped dress she wore to the Golden Globes -- with floral appliqué at the hem.

The French beauty paired her dress with sky high white platforms, also from Elie Saab, and again finished her look with Chopard jewelry: note the whopping 28 carat cushion cut emerald and diamond ring set in platinum.

Going in a darker direction, Cotillard's "Nine" co-star, best supporting actress nominee Penelope Cruz, dazzled in a curve-hugging black L'Wren Scott gown encrusted with so many jet-black beads that it must have weighed, like, 20lbs.

Cruz completed her look with peep-toe pumps by Casadei, and like Cotillard, rocked Chopard jewels -- namely, a 23 carat bracelet studded with radiant cut yellow and white diamonds.

While best leading actress winner Sandra Bullock donned a black form-fitting Alexander McQueen key-hole gown with cobalt blue beads in the shape of feathers decorating the neckline.

Perhaps all the ladies were paying homage to beaded-up "Golden Girls" actress Betty White, who celebrated her Life Achievement Award, presented by Sandra Bullock, in a turquoise -- 2010's color of the year -- dress with sheer, embellished sleeves.

And see which gem of a trend made a bold statement at the 2010 SAG Awards.
