Hendrik van de Wetering (1850 - 1929)

He was archbishop of Utrecht in the Netherlands from 1895 to 1929. He certainly knew how to attract attention by placing the biretta on his head in a somewhat "frivolous" (as a Dutch author put it) kind of way. Add to that biretta-style a cappa that is all over the place, and the first picture kind of looks like "Did anyone get the license plate of the party that hit me yesterday night?"
