"Gemini? Ah, the twins. So you're really two different people. Which one am I talking to right now? Knock knock, CAN JIMMY COME OUT AND PLAY??"
But let's consider my current object of fascination, the late event designer Robert Isabell, who created lush, feminine partyscapes for the likes of Ian Schrager, the Miller sisters and the Met's Costume Institute:

And lived in a Brutalist fever dream:

In a town house and carriage house he joined together, essentially both a solarium and a dungeon, that not even his closest of friends got to see. Dude collected Paul Evans pieces (some from the estate of Shari Lewis!) a decade before they blew up the market. Sotheby's will auction off Isabell's impressive stash, including works by Charlotte Perriand, Jean Prouvé, and Harry Bertoia, on December 17th.
Oh, and his birthday? June 2, 1952. GEMINI.
I rest my case.
Other famous Gems include Prince (), assless pants aficionado and Jehovah's Witness; Angelina Jolie, bisexual blood-wearer and irritating Earth Mother; Eliot Spitzer, Wall Street enforcer and fan of the Red Light Special; and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (actual twins, no relation), founders of a Wal-Mart tween empire and icons of edgy fashion ... well, at least where MK is concerned.
Isn't this fun?! (Don't answer.)
