ROME — Pope Francis has a new honor to add to his resume — Esquire Magazine has named him their Best Dressed Man of 2013.
Move over, Brad Pitt.
Step aside, George Clooney.
It looks like you have some very serious competition in the style department.
The magazine admits this is unconventional decision, but they point to Pope Francis' very simple style decisions as signaling new hope for the Catholic Church.
Pope Francis has been trying to focus the Catholic Church on helping the marginalized, the disenfranchised and the poor.
The elaborate robes and the golden cross that Pope Benedict wore are "so last season." Now it's all about Pope Francis with his very simple garments and his iron cross.
Esquire magazine writes, "This Holy Roman Emperor really does have new clothes." And they reflect the image of people's Pope.
