With the Sochi Olympics just days away, the world's top athletes are converging on the Russian seaside resort. Among them will be a Mexican skier, who's aiming to make a splash with style rather than sport.
55-year-old Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe has been skiing for Mexico in the Olympics since 1984. While he doesn't stand a chance against the world's best downhill racers, his custom-designed uniform is sure to make an impact. His quirky suit is inspired by Mexico's mariachis, well known bands of folk musicians. Max Foster asked him where his Olympic style inspiration came from.
"We thought we'll do this mariachi outfit which is a guy who likes to sing, who likes life and who likes to have a good time, but still is Mexican without a doubt," von Hohenlohe said. "Style will be remembered long after results are forgotten."
Max Foster speaks to fashion expert Henry Conway about why Pope Francis was put on Esquire's "Best Dressed" list.
