Who Wore It Best: Papal Edition

Moments after his election today, the newly named Pope Francis was dressed in the white vestments unique to the highest office in Catholicism.

The pope is allowed to decide just how decked out he wants to get - choosing from dozens of items, including shoes, hats, capes and even crowns.
