From ABC News today:
Pope to get image makeover from director
Posted December 16
Italian film and opera legend Franco Zeffirelli says he has agreed to become an image consultant to Pope Benedict XVI.
The pope does not have a "happy image", Zeffirelli tells Italian daily La Stampa in an interview published today.
"Coming after a Pope as telegenic as John Paul II is a difficult task," he said.
Zeffirelli says Pope Benedict, elected in 2005, "comes across coldly, which isn't suited to his surroundings" and added that his wardrobe "should be reviewed". * (Emphasis added, ed.)
