LIFE ON THE FLIP SIDE
WHEN Scott Disick dons a beige suit to mingle with potential buyers of his newly flipped Malibu property, the reality star trumpets the “return of the Lord.” For those unfamiliar with KeepingUpwiththeKardashians, this was the moniker Disick (pictured) gave himself to explain his outlandish fashion taste and regal behaviour. There is some truth to his boasting, because when he teams the suit with his hipster beard and chin-skimming man-bob, the look is indeed rather royal. RoyalTenenbaums, that is. Yes, somewhere along the way, Disick has started to morph into Luke Wilson’s eccentric character in the 2001 movie. The only thing missing from his look is the sweat band. When it comes to style, Disick marches to the same beat as his pseudo in-laws. He favours excess over simplicity. In the Kardashian’s world, bigger is almost always better (especially when it comes to bottoms, lips and pay cheques). So, it comes as no surprise that Disick would want to tear out a perfectly good pool to build himself a trendier one; or that he has a giant statue of David installed in his bachelor pad. The biggest surprise about this show is that Disick now seems hell-bent on trying to prove to the world that he does something beyond making nightclub appearances. I am just not sure that teaming up with a pop-singer-turned-interior-designer and two of his mates for this reno show is the best way to do it.
