New York - People magazine is naming Beyoncé as the World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2012.
The 30-year-old singer tops the magazine's annual list of the "World's Most Beautiful" in a special double issue. The announcement was made on Wednesday.
Beyoncé tells the magazine: "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."
