"Pope" Covers L’Uomo Vogue

2. According to the magazine, it’s a “self-portrait as Pope Innocent X (after Diego Velàzquez).”

So the inspiration is NOT Francis Bacon as you might have thought. Maybe he’s too lowbrow for the Vogue Italia family.

3. Don’t look so down, Pope Francis — your day will come.
