Tiffany Trump shimmered in a gold strapless gown while attending a gala event in New York City on Thursday.

“It was an honor attending the 75th Anniversary of Battle of the Coral Sea with my family and Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Mrs. Turnbull,” she captioned an Instagram photo of her look, which received almost 12,000 likes in the space of an hour.

The 23-year-old hit the event at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum with her longtime boyfriend, Ross Mechanic, 22, the son of a New York City real estate lawyer.

First lady Melania Trump — who wore a yellow one-shoulder Christian Dior silk gown — along with Australia Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, his wife, Lucy, John Travolta, and media mogul Rupert Murdoch, were also among the 700 guests who gathered to acknowledge the 1942 air-sea battle between Japan and the United States and Australia.

It was the first time President Trump and Turnbull met in person. Their first phone call in February reportedly ended with the president hanging up on the prime minister after arguing about Australia’s refugee program (a report the president called “fake news” on Thursday).

Tiffany, who plans to attend law school in the fall at either Columbia, Harvard, or New York University, was photographed during the day on Thursday wearing skinny jeans and a leather jacket in New York City, accompanied by two Secret Service agents. And on Wednesday, Tiffany promoted big sister Ivanka Trump‘s new book, Women Who Work (released Tuesday), by posing on the balcony of Trump Tower in Manhattan. “I can’t wait to start reading it!” she wrote.

I'm so proud of my big sister @IvankaTrump on the launch of her #WomenWhoWorkBook! I can't wait to start reading it! ????
