Elizabeth Olsen Is a Golden Girl at Gotham Film Awards (PHOTOS)

Elizabeth Olsen in NYC
Rising star celebrates Missoni
Elizabeth Olsen looked absolutely stunning as she hit the red carpet at IFP’s 21st annual Gotham Independent Film awards on Monday evening. Arriving at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, Mary-Kate and Ashley’s little sister dazzled in a gold Valentino dress paired with Kwiat jewels.

The 22-year-old actress was nominated that evening for Best Breakthrough Actor for her role in Martha Marcy May Marlene but lost to Like Crazy’s Felicity Jones.

Although she’s finally stepping out of her sisters’ shadows, Lizzie recently explained that it was difficult defining herself when all eyes were on them.

“My whole life they’ve been like women, while I’ve been trying to be a woman but still a kid,” she confessed in the December issue of Marie Claire. “I’ve always had a complex about being taken seriously. I never wanted anyone to think that I would use my family name to get me anywhere.”

Well, Martha Marcy is sure to rocket Olsen to the top of every director and studio’s wish-list. Elizabeth’s performance in the intense film is phenomenal and already creating a lot of award show buzz!
