Prada Pope


The devil isn't the only one wearing Prada.

Pope Benedict XVI is generating a reputation as a man of the designer cloth - thanks to his penchant for wearing lipstick-red Prada shoes. According to the scuttlebutt from Rome, the new pope is also turning heads by wearing Gucci sunglasses.

Inside the Vatican, the heads of hard-core traditionalists are spinning over the Prada pope's decision to wear ceremonial robes designed by up-and-coming tailor Alessandro Cattaneo instead of those created by Annibale Gammarelli, the design house which has been responsible for papal attire since at least 1846.

We once lived on a military base and the base priest lived behind us. That man was the biggest buyer of high-end labels I've ever seen. What's up with that? Isn't there some "vow of poverty" clause?

Pope John Paull II also wore pretty stylish shoes. If you live in Italy, c'mon. I think you have to.

Not all priests take a vow of poverty. Usually the ones who do are in an order like the Jesuits or Franciscans...
