Engaged: Michelle Kwan, 32, and Lt. Clay Pell, 30, reports People. She’s the legendary figure skating champion who has made Washington her home since getting her master’s in foreign policy last year; he’s a Coast Guard lawyer currently working at the White House’s National Security Council — and yes, a grandson of the late Sen. Claiborne Pell (D-R.I.). Dating since April 2011, they got engaged on Block Island over Labor Day. Since starting her new life in D.C., Kwan has mostly been visible in her unpaid work as a State Department public-diplomacy envoy and as a member of its council to promote women’s sports worldwide — though we do catch her now and then out at cool restaurants, stepping out in high society, or rocking an amazing gold bandage dress at a state dinner.
