Heads turned as President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka glided down the marble steps of the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday, where she took in oral arguments with her daughter Arabella.

Trump visited the high court at the invitation of Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom she met at a luncheon shortly after her father’s inauguration. She was seated in a front row section reserved for guests of the justices, where she watched an hour long argument about the Federal Arbitration Act and state contract laws.

After her visit to the Court, she posted a short message on Twitter.

In addition to Wednesday’s arguments, the Court released opinions in three cases, including one case involving racist testimony in the sentencing of a black death row inmate. A summary of each decision was presented before arguments began.

President Trump has not yet visited the Supreme Court. Customarily, the incoming-president will visit the justices on the morning of the inauguration. An unspecified scheduling conflict kept Trump away from the high court, which he hopes to visit soon.
