C'est vs. Elle est

C'est vs. Elle est

In the last sentence, I used "Elle est" but was corrected to "C'est" and referred to the lesson for using c'est vs. elle/il est when saying "it is." I was confused by this, however, because I wasn't trying to say "it is" -- I was trying to say "she is," referring to Marc's daughter. What is the reason for the last sentence using "C'est"?

With sentences that have "she is a+noun" we use C'est.

 I agree, why not elle est instead of C'est.
