Sixteen-time Grammy Award winner Beyoncé was recently named People Magazine's World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2012. On People.com, the singer is quoted as 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."
The singer, who's known for hits like "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and "Irreplaceable," gave birth to baby Blue Ivy Carter on January 7. "The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," she told People. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."
Other stars on the magazine's list are Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara, Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. You can check out People's preview of their list online.
