Now, reports have been swooning about his fashion sense.
It’s not enough that he sits in the Holy See, Bishop of Rome, leader of the Roman Catholic Church, et cetera, et cetera. Now, the press has to poke at slick dancing shoes?
Well, here they are and the story from Variety, in their burnt erubescent glare (with leather insoles, no less).
Suspicions that Pope Benedict XVI might have become a fashionista were aroused when Esquire mag named him the man with the best accessories. But the Vatican’s official newspaper, The Roman Observer, snapped June 25 that “the Pope does not wear Prada but Christ.”
Wow. It’s not like we didn’t see that sound bite coming at us doing 75 mph in a school zone. Whoosh! Well, next time I’m in Vatican City, I got dibs on a dancing partner. Good times.
