Beyonce named 'World’s Most Beautiful Woman'

People magazine has named Beyonce as this year's most beautiful woman - and she's sharing the spotlight with her infant daughter, Blue Ivy.

"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," the 16-time Grammy winner and new mom told the magazine.

The superstar singer and her husband Jay-Z welcomed their daughter in January, and Beyonce said she's "never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth... She's just the cutest thing.”

The 30-year-old also revealed that she sings unique lullabies to little Blue, and claimed to actually “love" changing diapers.

And as for which parent Blue most resembles, Bey would only say that "she looks like Blue. She's her own person."

"The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," she continued about her bundle of joy. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."

    Personally the most beautiful woman in the world is Katie Mcgrath. She is talented, beautiful in everyway. Her emerald eyes are to die for just....everything about her is beautiful. Beyonce is pretty but I certainly wouldnt say the most beautiful but to be honest everyone has their different tastes. I think Katie Mcgrath is the most beautiful woman in the world but not everyone is going to agree on that, are they? So just stop arguing like immature children.

      Actually,black lady, Beyonce," looks like" a lovely young lady who married her husband YEARS before they conceived their first child. Beyonce has kept her morals. Beyonce has also never abused drugs nor alcohol, unlike the unfortunate Ms. Lohan. Beyonce gave much for Hurricane victims in Texas. Beyonce, at the time she won it, was the youngest person in HISTORY to win the Songwriter of the Year Award - voted on by other songwriters. Kelly, one of her Destiny's Child buddies, said she watched Beyonce write the huge # 1 hit song, INDEPENDENT WOMAN, in just a few minutes. Beyonce's friend, Gwynyth Paltrow, said that Beyonce is the most talented person on earth. Beyonce is beautiful, brilliant, humorous, and kind. Thank you, PEOPLE, for gracing your cover with a truly beautiful lady this year!

    well she must be doing something right because she got all this attention from all of you debating whether shes beautiful or not, whether you love her or hate her you pay attention tyo her n take time out of her day to respond one way or another.... @judge dredd black people actually can be born with straight hair and come in different shades unlike women without color who pay to go tanning and get ass and lip injections to look like you know who... so for each black women that wants to look white theirs also a white women struggling to look black

    It boils down to this… Beyoncé had a publicist that was willing to pay big $$$ to get this accolade. Plain and simple. She is NOT the most beautiful woman in the world and far from it. Nor does that statement have a single thing to do with race. It's all about staying relevant in the media. She gave birth- big deal. That happens every fricking day to woman everywhere in the world. It would be nice if People magazine would spotlight the real beautiful women who do this every day on income substantially far less than what Beyoncé makes in a week, juggle careers, relationships and other responsibilities without the aid of personal assistants and nannies. Puh-lease. Beyoncé, just go away. NEXT!

      Kristin, that is one of the dumbest things I've ever read on the internet. Did Jennifer (weird chin) Aniston "pay" to be named world's most beatiful woman? Did Angelina Jolie "Pay" to be named world's most beautiful woman? Beyonce Knowles is beautiful inside and out. Beyonce's childhood minister and his wife said that Beyonce is still the same kind, thoughtful, good person she was as a child. Beyonce has given much for Hurricane victims. Moreover Beyonce is brilliant. At the time she won it, Beyonce was the youngest person in HISTORY to win the Songwriter of the Year Award. Kelly, her Destiny's Child friend and bandmate said that she watched Beyonce write the huge # 1 hit INDEPENDENT WOMAN in just a few minutes. Beyonce's friend, Academy Award Winning Gwyneth Paltrow, said that Beyonce is the most talented person on earth. Beyonce doesn't have to "pay" anyone to called beautiful. Anyone one with eyes, ears, and a heart already knows that she is!

    I love all the people calling everyone racist or saying that black women are beautiful. If black women are so beautiful then why do they try to look like white women? Look at her hair, that is not naturally a black girl's hair that is what you would see on a white girl's hair. Bwahahhaah Black girls trying to look white yet they hate white people. Beyonce is fake indeed, she didn't have that baby.

    Jennifer Hudson anywhere near this number 1 spot? Hel l no! Because Jennifer Hudson, she BLACK.

    Beyonce won this contest for the same reason white slave owners paid good money for light skinned mulatto, quadroon, or octoroon women–because she looks light enough to be exotic and still look semi-white, without REALLY looking black. Someone paid TOP dollar for a white woman with 1/16 black blood in her one time, blond hair, blue eyes- got taken to court and she LOST.

    Sad state of affairs.

    Oh, and by the way, CNN, this is not news. See my previous post.

    Wow. I love how CNN has so little actual "news" to report that they end up reporting another magazine's front cover headline as news. I guess this one's for all those folks who sit in front of their PC all day and NEVER go to the grocery store, or their local CVS.

    I'm noticing a lot more of these types of articles- an entire article devoted to what happened on Dancing With the Stars last night (for all those who didn't WATCH it)- what a sad state of affairs when not only can we WATCH television, but we can read about what we could have watched on CNN, purportedly as News!!!

    Or how about the 2, count 'em TWO simultaneous articles the other day about the Rancic's are having a baby??

    How much more fatuous can you get. Next it will be "news" that Obama took a dump today. How sad.

    I just wish there were another place to get my news online, which published frequently, locally, and of broad interests. NPR isn't frequent enough, BBC isn't local enough, and AlJazeera isn't...well...BBC isn't local enough!

      I definitely agree with you Sky. But unfortunately, Hollywood is not like the back of a high school yearbook where the: "most likely to succeed, the kindest/best personality, the brightest, the most comical, the most athletic" apply. Hollywood is all about image. And who ever doesn't fit into their little mold in terms of appearance, is talked about. I truly wish it wasn't about image at all because you have young people who kill themselves (not literally) to look like a celebrity, instead of striving to get good grades in school or becoming a positive and active member of society.

      Although, it seems now a days, it doesn't matter what you do, you still get talked about. So I guess as long as the person is happy with their self, then that's all that matters. You can't please everyone.

    Wow! There are some hateful @ss people out there. The ones who made those negative comments must be booga-wolfs (urban term for an ugly person). I have to agree that I don't believe Beyonce is the most beautiful woman in the world. But she certainly is beautiful. Not to mention talented; along with other women. You individuals act like she was number 1 most beautiful for 10 years in a row! It’s for the year! Many celebrity women make the cover. And the same old people have to find something negative to say!

    Who cares if you don't think her music is R&B and more along the lines of Pop, or that her hair is dyed and extensions are added (that wouldn't be an issue if she was a "Becky" (term used to describe a white girl)) and who cares about People magazine's opinion. Both People magazine and Beyonce make more money than any of us commenting on this article right now. So get over it and find something else to be angry about. Or better yet, work towards making your outer beauty worth looking at, since that seems to be the topic here.

    Some of these comments are absolutely ridiculous! Beyonce IS the most beautiful in Hollywood, hands down! All those performances are NOT photoshopped and she is GORGEOUS on all those LIVE TV programs.....aint nothing fake about her appearance as a beautiful woman. Sofia Vergara,seen her in person,looks NOTHING like her image. Beyonce.....? I have seen her in person and she is STUNNING!! Beyonce should have BEEN won this award over other women who got it like Drew Barrymore,Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts....not even close to Beyonce's beauty but Julia has won 4 times!

    And every woman who has had this honor HAS worn extra hair so what? Everyone of them has had dyed hair....or a tan or some other cosmetic enhancement. And Beyonce has always been lightskinned but has tanned a lot,esp when she lived in Houston. She lives in New York and is lighter now cause of that. She got a tan her last vacation,the pics show that. She aint bleaching a thing.

    And that awesome figure is HERS....had it when she was a teenager in Destiny's child. And now that she had Blue Ivy,her breasts are even MORE ideal....it is what it is....She IS the most beautiful and People magazine got it right! Too bad for idiots denying it...!

      You may not be old enough but when the Afro hairstyle was popular with blacks, many whites had their hair permed to get that look. When we copy white, people like you always turn it negative or deragatory, but when you get your lips puffed and you ass padded, we comment, but never to demean you. I am proud to be black and would not want to be anything else. I am different but not better. You are a sad excuse for a being. Learn to be human. Oh, I still wear a Afro proudly

People magazine shows , that the rich ugly fellows nominated each other, just as in the Oscars, where they nominated movies and actors who are the worse of the worse.

    In the world, there are plainty of Asian, Latinas, African, women, naturally beautiful than this ugly Beyonce and the rest . They do not have fake boobs, Botox injected in their faces, color their hair to look like a white woman, they are naturally beautiful, so to all the old and young ugly women who were named People's 2012, they maybe, they are the most Botox, artificially enhanced women in the world, but not beautiful.

      The pop culture idea of beauty is depresingly enhanced mediocracy. There are beautiful woman all over the place who are natural and who are even ,wow,interesting and inspiring and who will never be on a rags cover. This is not jealousy. It is frustration with how dumbed down and fake and soul deadening these plastic values are. Whatever happened to the idea of real prettiness and real beauty/ A true eye for beautiful would call her "hot",like plastic deadface Kardashian...not beautiful. These are ugly robot faces.

      A bit rough but the point is spot on. Naming one person "most beautiful" is completely a joke. Most beautiful by what standard? And by who's? And besides, she is a very ugly person on the inside, so she could have all the outer beauty she can get but an ugly personality makes an ugly person. She is greedy, selfish and it has been shown on camera about her overall meanness. Definitely NOT the world's most beautiful.

I didn't like or dislike Bey, but when I heard about her outlandish hospital stay, not allowing people to visit their loved ones who had a baby...just completely selfish and arrogant, I find her to be an ugly person.

I would not ever want to be voted "World's Most Beautiful Woman". It seems like a joke. You know no matter how beautiful you think you are, there is always someone more beutiful.

    No one can claim to be the most anything in the world. The single notion of being the most beautiful is ludicrous, was there a contest that all women in the world entered?. She is beautiful, no doubt about that, natural beauty? welll that's a different thing all together. To be singled out as the most beautiful is pompous and arrogant. To be told that you are beautiful is great, to be told that you are the most beautiful in the world is sometimes putting a spotlight on you that you might not want.

    Beyonce is beautiful and black is beautiful. Just because you dont think so doesnt mean others agree with you. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone is beautiful. God made all of us and doesnt make mistakes. Those of you who say one (ethnic backround which is the correct term than race cause we are all human) is superior than another obviously have a superiority complex or hate what you see by putting others down to make you feel better. In the eyes of the beholder there are pleasing and not so pleasing in every ethinc backround. Those of you that are proud of your ethnicity that is great but dont put down another cause we are all brothers and sisters and this needs to stop period!!! the real beauty is what's inside and if you are not beautiful inside you are not gonna be put up with for very long. I see beauty in all ethnic groups not just in the african american group. Mostly in america does ignorance keep being taught about ethnic differences. Have a good day and again everyone is beautiful

    White women have been voted Most Beautiful for many years and no one thought twice about it because it's just so typical. I believe it has more to do with the fact that she handled her pregnancy well despite all the negative press saying she wasn't pregnant, etc.; she didn't allow herself to blow up like a whale during her pregnancy and how she has regained her body since having her child that allows her to be considered the Most Beautiful woman. JLO was voted such last year and as a non-white woman no one had anything to say but NEXT. Congrats to Bey, but NEXT.

    What criteria are used to judge who is beautiful or not? I have travelled a lot and seen many women all over the wolrd who I will consider beautiful and they were 'natural' and diid not need the help of make-up artists and photo touch-ups. My own wife has Sri Lnakn, German, Dutch, French, Belgian and English ancestry and I think she is beautiful but her true beauty is not just physical, but also the inner qualities she posseses.

Yes, we can go natural, braid or weave, however, we don't try to change our skin color (get darker), develope a dialect that is fake (white girls going black) or pretend to know what struggle is (we've done it all out lives).

Also, it's easier to change colors. But I don't believe that there's not such thing as the world's most beautiful man or woman. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so everyone doesn't find the same people attractive all the time.

      I-know-everything's comment belies his ignorance. Time constraints prevent addressing his stupidity.

      I've seen Sofia in person, and I don't think so. Don't get me wrong, she is a very attractive woman, but lights, cameras, makeup, and photo touchups make all the difference in the world. When I saw her, I didn't even know who she was. Saw Beyonce at a Lakers game, and she is indeed beautiful. I was surprised.

      Raven doesn't look better than her in my opinion in many other opinions but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But Christina Milian in my opinion looks better than Beyonce. Beyonce is pretty, body is the bomb & she has a very nice personality.

    Big fat as s and fake blond hair. That's the best you can up with People magazine? 3 billion women on the planet and you pick her?

    She isn't even the prettiest woman in show business, let alone prettiest woman in the world.

      Not everyone believes that women in the process of starvation are beautiful.

      Clearly you don't understand teh distinction between what is considered beauty as to what is considered pretty. Just think about it for a minute...before you decide not to agree...just ponder what the difference is between these two descriptive words.
