OUT: LOVE LETTER EXCHANGES // IN: FLUID EXCHANGES

Poor Eleanor Roosevelt shot herself in the foot the day she hired Lucy Mercer, the secretary with whom she’d discover her man, FDR, penning sweet nothings back and forth with in a series of love letters. (Dude even had his daughter helping him rendezvous after he’d been caught in the act.) Seeing as we’re no longer living in the early 1900s, however, love notes have become kind of schmaltzy. Our country’s leading men have a new way of letting their side chicks know they care—letting it rip on their clothing. Monica Lewinsky’s liquid love-soaked Gap dress is one she’ll likely remember as long as she lives.
