Beyonce was named People's Most Beautiful Woman for 2012 in their special double issue.

The 30-year old singer was at the top of the list for People's "World's Most Beautiful" issue. 

The new mom commented on the honour, saying, "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."
