Tyler Perry's ladylove, Gelila Bekele showed off her upscale street fashion sense as she gave fans a sneak peek of her lookbook on social media. Her casual glam came complete with the COVID-19 safety measures.


Tyler Perry's girlfriend, Gelila Bekele, a seasoned model, showed off a classy street style as she rocked a casual bad chic outfit in her latest Instagram update.

While Bekele was photographed strutting down the street, she flaunted her style and made sure to chip in a piece of safety item to keep her glam flawless.

The one-photo post showed the model casually strolling down a walkway while tall buildings and parked cars were her backdrops. Bekele rocked an African-print top with green and red embroidery around its neckline, front, and pocket edge. She captioned:

"African Girl Shiro in her bag… #Africanprint #madeinafrica…"

The Ethiopia-born model donned a ripped mini skirt while her feet were clad in brown slippers as she sported a silver anklet. The other jewelry on Bekele was a necklace. She completed her soft glam with tight black curls, a white tote bag, and a face mask.



Bekele's followers were in love with her styling as they trooped to the comments with their lovely thoughts. One fan shared: "Always representing." Another gushed: "Beautiful as always."

Getting on an eye-to-eye level with Amar, Tyler asked him to apologize after throwing a fit.

A psyched fan chipped in: "Looove thus outfit." One admirer addressed Bekele by writing, "I like your top!! Gorgeous!.." More followers approved of her ensemble as they praised her for showing her heritage.



The 33-year-old model got a big break in her modeling career after she signed with Ford Models. Bekele has walked the runway for big brands like Michael Kors and has modeled for others like Pantene and L'Oreal.

She doubles as a passionate humanitarian and filmmaker. She and Hollywood mogul, Perry were romantically linked in 2009 and they have been together since then.

In 2014, the duo welcomed their first child, Aman. Aman's godmothers are Oprah Winfrey and Cicely Tyson. Perry and Bekele mostly keep their son away from the public eye.



While Perry is acclaimed for his pseudo-role as Madea and being the first African American to own a studio, the dad-of-one mentioned to People that his most significant role was being a dad.

Perry shared the sweet moments he enjoys with his son and admitted that they could be exhausting sometimes. The doting dad also joked about his son's curious nature. He told the news site:

"This is the thing he does: 'Can a cheetah beat a rancher? Can a cheetah beat a car? [...] By the time we go through all... I'm beat."

Perry shared that his most challenging moment so far was when he had to discipline his son. Getting on an eye-to-eye level with Amar, he asked him to apologize after throwing a fit.
