Beyonce is world's most beautiful woman: People

The trials of motherhood has not taken its toll on Beyonce, it seems.

People magazine on Wednesday named Beyonce the World’s Most Beautiful Woman for 2012, describing her as a force of nature, style icon and proud mother.

The 30-year-old singer, a 16-time Grammy Award winner, told the big-selling magazine that her recently born daughter had given new meaning to her life.

“I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth,” Beyonce said. “I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.”

The “Crazy in Love,” singer, and her husband Jay-Z announced the birth of daughter Blue Ivy in January this year.

“She’s just the cutest thing,” Beyonce told People.

Other celebrities named on the magazine’s most beautiful list included Angelina Jolie, Elle MacPherson and Jennifer Lopez.

Lopez was named most beautiful last year, but was not in the top 10 this year.

Phil Collins' daughter, Lily Collins, 23, who plays Snow White in the recent adaption of the fairytale, made her maiden entrance on the top 10 list at number 5.
