Tiffany Trump applies a bindi while enjoying lunch in Miami

Life in the sunshine state appears to be agreeing with former First Daughter Tiffany Trump, who couldn’t have looked happier as she stepped out for a fun-filled lunch with fiance Michael Boulos and pals over the weekend. 

The 27-year-old daughter of former President Donald Trump was pictured putting on a very animated display while dining with her betrothed and several other companions at Prime Italian on Sunday, while modeling a pretty floral dress, chic sun hat and $450 studded leather sandals from Stuart Weitzman. 

Tiffany added an accessory to her ensemble mid-meal in the form of a red bindi, which she was seen applying to the center of her forehead during her lunch.  

Traditionally, bindi are worn by Hindu and Jain women, and in Hinduism, they serve as a symbol of love, honor, and prosperity. They are also believed to ensure an auspicious and prosperous marriage and are usually worn by brides during their wedding celebrations – which may be why Tiffany, who announced her engagement to Michael, 23, in January – decided to model one during her lunch.

The Georgetown Law School graduate looked as though she was having a ball during the meal and was pictured gesturing animatedly with her hands while enjoying a conversation with her pals – flashing her large 13-carat diamond engagement ring in the process.

While the impressive sparkler certainly stole the show, it was not the only accessory that Tiffany wore for her lunch date. As well as her ring, which is estimated to be worth a staggering $1.2 million, she also added several bangles to her look, including a $7,100 gold Cartier Juste un Clou bracelet.

Tiffany also donned a pair of moon-and-star-shaped gold earrings, and wore a dainty pearl chain around her neck. 

She wore her long blonde locks in loose waves that hung down below her shoulders and she kept her makeup to a minimum, opting for a subtle smokey eye and a pretty pink lipstick.  

Upon her arrival at the upscale eatery, Tiffany was seen modeling a wide-brimmed straw sun hat and large gold-rimmed sunglasses, both of which she removed after sitting down at the table. 

She also toted a khaki-green Balenciaga handbag with her. 

Although the identities of Tiffany and Michael’s dining companions are not known, it appears that the couple is very close with the duo.

The former First Daughter greeted both friends with a warm embrace, while Michael high-fived their male pal before they departed the restaurant.  

Throughout the meal, Tiffany was pictured chatting animatedly with her pals, and at one point she burst into a fit of laughter, throwing one arm up in the air as she chuckled at a funny comment.

It may well be that Tiffany and Michael were discussing their wedding plans during lunch and the latter was seen toting an Apple Macbook with him when he exited the restaurant at the end of the meal, as well as a brown paper bag that was likely filled with leftovers. 

According to the New York Post, the duo are in the midst of arranging the details of their ceremony, with a source telling the outlet that the couple may well end up hosting two weddings in order to accommodate any friends and family who live abroad and could be prevented from traveling to the US amid ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. 

‘Tiffany has been waiting to plan a very big wedding,’ the insider told the Post. ‘Her fiancé is from a very wealthy family, she is from a very wealthy family, and they want all their friends from around the world to be there.’ 

Michael, who is of Lebanese and French descent, and he was raised in Nigeria – where is family owns a billion-dollar empire, which he and his brother Fares are one day set to inherit. 

His family’s roots are based in the dusty hills of Northern Lebanon and spread across decades and continents to an opulent lifestyle in Nigeria and the US. 

He attended Regent’s University in London, where he lived for three years, taking up residence in a sprawling apartment near Regent’s Park.  

It is therefore expected that the couple will have a lengthy list of international invitees on their guest list – not to mention Tiffany’s family, which includes her mother Marla Maples, her father, former President Trump, sister Ivanka, and brothers Don Jr, Eric, and Barron.

Tiffany and Michael had been dating for two years when they announced their engagement on January 20 – the same day that her father left the White House after his single-term presidency. 

The couple seized the opportunity to pose for photos outside the West Wing, which they both shared on Instagram while revealing their happy news. 

In her post, Tiffany described the engagement as her most ‘special’ White House memory, while paying tribute to her ‘amazing fiancé’.

‘It has been an honor to celebrate many milestones, historic occasions and create memories with my family here at the White House, none more special than my engagement to my amazing fiancé Michael!’ she wrote. ‘Feeling blessed and excited for the next chapter!’

Just like Tiffany’s father, her sister Ivanka and brother Don Jr, the couple made the decision to move down to Florida after Trump’s exit from the White House, and they have since taken up residence in Miami, having begun their search for a home in the Sunshine State just weeks before announcing their engagement. 

‘She has been in Miami looking at properties,’ a source close to Tiffany told DailyMail.com in mid-January. ‘She was staying at the Setai Hotel while she was viewing different options.’

Tiffany, Trump’s only child with his second wife Marla, graduated from Georgetown Law School in May, but she has yet to take the bar exam, which she needs to pass to officially become a lawyer. 

‘She hasn’t decided on her next career move,’ a source told Page Six. ‘She truly thought her father would win a second term and she’d continue as part of the First Family. She became more involved with the family and politics during his last campaign.’  

Tiffany has lived in several different states over the past ten years, including California – where she was raised by her mother Marla – New York, where the mother and daughter duo also have a home, Pennsylvania, where she attended the UPenn, and Washington, D.C., where she attended Georgetown. 

However, the former First Daughter seems very much at home in Miami, where she was pictured spending a great deal of time towards the end of 2020. 

In October, Tiffany rang in her 27th birthday in Miami and visited Papi Steak in South Beach, where co-owner David Einhorn presented her with an enormous three-tiered cake decorated with nearly a dozen photos taken from her Instagram account.

The following night, Tiffany toasted her big day at Swan Miami, where she sipped on a green cocktail to match her dress and enjoyed a sweet dessert feast.

The couple has been living the high-life since moving to Miami at the start of the year; earlier this month, they enjoyed a night out at the highly-publicized boxing match between legend Floyd Mayweather and YouTuber Logan Paul at the Hard Rock Stadium.  

The couple, who attended a charity event just a few days before, sat in a private box with friends during the Showtime pay-per-view match, which went for eight rounds without a knockout.  

Both Tiffany and Michael shared footage from inside the stadium on their Instagram Stories, with the Georgetown Law graduate’s billionaire beau posting a video of them cuddled up in their seats. 

When the former first daughter rested her hand on her husband-to-be’s arm, she flashed her 13-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring, which is believed to be worth up to a staggering $1.2 million.

Tiffany also posed for a photo with friends, including marketing influencer Alan Lazar, fitness trainer Renata Beokovic, and Cardone Capital’s executive vice president Ryan Tseko.

The snapshot shows Tiffany with her hand on her hip as she smiles for the camera wearing a blue tweet blazer over a black sleeveless shirt, black skinny jeans, and black booties with brown straps.

To top off her fight-night look, she sported smokey eye makeup, lip gloss, and her long blond hair was styled around her shoulders. In addition to her engagement ring, she had on layered necklaces and chunky blue rhinestone-encrusted earrings.

Tiffany was the only one in the group who didn’t post the picture on social media. Some of the others also filmed videos inside the box, which show Tiffany and Michael on their phones in the front row and posing for a photo together.   

Having never lost a fight, Mayweather, 44, was expected to easily knock out Paul, 26, despite his opponent being six inches taller and nearly 35 pounds heavier — but it never happened. 

The exhibition match went on for a surprising eight rounds as Mayweather failed to take down his opponent. There was no winner called as there were no judges at the special event. 

Some furious fans took to social media to claim the Mayweather vs. Paul fight was fixed after the boxing legend appeared to stop the YouTube star from falling to the canvas, though there was no evidence to support the allegations.    

Before the fight, Tiffany shared a video of her rescue cat Petals perched on top of her tufted headboard.

‘What are you going to do? Are you gonna jump?’ she whispered, right before the feline leaped to the ground, prompting her to gasp in surprise.

Tiffany and Michael have kept a relatively low profile since they moved to Florida earlier this year, but that all changed this past week after they were spotted out on three different occasions. 

On Thursday evening, they hobnobbed with French soccer star Blaise Matuidi and his family at Haute Living’s charity event benefitting the athlete’s organization Tremplins Blaise Matuidi.  

The couple happily posed for pictures at the swanky party hosted at the Biltmore Hotel, with Tiffany showing off her legs in a teal cocktail dress that featured a thigh-high slit as well as her massive diamond engagement ring.

Her fingernail and toenail polish matched her dress, but only some of her fingers were painted, suggesting she may have suffered a beauty malfunction before the event. 

Tiffany was missing polish on three of her nails on her left hand and at least one on her left. The nail color may have been leftover from a previous manicure and just happened to match her dress for the night.

Her long-sleeve frock was cinched at the waist and had a wrap-around skirt with a slit. She topped off the look with a pair of cream strappy stilettos and a black clutch with gold-leaf detailing.

Meanwhile, Michael, 23, looked dapper in a dark suit and a light blue tie that complemented his bride-to-be’s dress, though it didn’t match it. 

The couple posed for photos together both outside the hotel and in front of the step and repeat, where they bonded with Blaise and his wife Isabella Matuidi. 

Isabella took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday night to share footage of Tiffany gushing over her daughter Myliane’s sunset-colored gown. 

The short video shows the law school graduate calling Myliane over to take pictures with them. Tiffany gave her a big hug and complimented her on her dress. 

‘Your dress, I love [it],’ she said. ‘I almost bought it.’  

Tiffany only shared one photo from the night on her own Instagram Stories: a picture herself posing with the mother and daughter, which she reposted from Isabella’s account.   

The couple may be a fan of Blaise, or at the very least Inter Miami CF. Just a few days before the party, they watched the soccer team take on D.C. United.  

The former president’s youngest daughter sat between Michael and a blonde female friend, just one row back from the pitch at the Fort Lauderdale stadium in Florida on Saturday, May 29.    

Dressed in a white sleeveless sundress, cradled her $2,000 velvet pink Gucci bag in her lap for much of the game. Tiffany cheered and shouted, though it wasn’t immediately clear which team she was supporting, given her ties to both cities. 

She relocated to Miami earlier this year with Michael — who proposed at the White House in January — after attending Georgetown Law School in D.C. while her father was president. 

Inter Miami CF ended up losing to D.C. United 3-0.
