Esquire Magazine names Pope Francis 'Best Dressed Man of 2013'

According to CNN on Dec. 28, Esquire Magazine has named Pope Francis as its ''Best Dressed Man of 2013.''

This seems like an unconventional choice for Pope Francis to receive that honor.

One would think the best dressed honor would have gone to a celebrity such as Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, George Clooney or some of the other well-known men.

So how did Esquire officials explain their choice?

What caught the officials' attention is the pontiff's fashion choice to refrain from wearing flashy garments like those who held the office before him such as Pope Benedict who wore elaborate robe and red shoes.

Pope Francis shows humility in what he does and in the way he dresses.

Although the men's magazine acknowledged the choice as “unconventional,” the editors said it was an easy choice upon closer examination. The Pope's modest attire, his new take on Catholicism and approachable attitude helped him score the win.

Pope Francis has been honored in numerous ways this year. He was elected the first pope from South America nine months ago. Six months later, the Argentine-born pontiff was named the “Internet's Top Name” by the Global Language Monitor. Earlier this month, Time Magazine named him "Person of the Year."

Pope Francis is indeed a popular pontiff. He has over 3 million followers on Twitter and has an 88% approval rating.

Take a look at Pope Benedict – the elaborate robes, the golden cross; Esquire says this look is so last season.
