While it's a well-known fact that Pope Benedict XVI wears bright red Prada slip-on shoes beneath his vestments, checkout who’s been throwing on Armani. Monsignor Mogavero, the Bishop of Mazara del Vallo near Palermo on the Italian island of Sicily has £2,000 robes made by Armani.

A Daily Mail report says Monsignor Mogavero was given the white robes free of charge by Armani in return for saying mass at the church which is on a tiny Italian island where the designer has a holiday home.

Apparently the vestments are hand-made and embroidered with depictions of the island and the Mediterranean Sea. So, while the Pope wears Prada, there’s no doubt that his bishop prefers Armani.
