Beyonce named most beautiful woman

Beyonce has been named the most beautiful woman in the world by a US magazine.

The 30-year-old chart-topper - who is married to rapper Jay-Z - beat a host of stunning celebs to be crowned the World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2012 by People magazine.

Beyonce, who gave birth to a daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January, told the mag: "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this Earth."

"She's just the cutest thing," said the Grammy winner, who sings to her daughter and claims to love changing nappies.

Asked if Blue resembles her mum or dad, she said: "She looks like Blue. She's her own person."

"The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," added the star. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."

Other celebrities on this year's list include Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Jessica Pare of Mad Men.
