Beyonce Named Most Beautiful Woman in the World!

by at . Comments

She's a 16-time Grammy Award winner, a beauty and style icon, a wife and a mother. Now Beyonce can add World's Most Beautiful Woman to her resume.

People bestowed that honor upon her in its new cover story.

"I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth," the megastar said ... of becoming a mother for the first time this winter.

All other accolades and achievements pale in comparison, she says, to the love she and husband Jay-Z feel for baby Blue Ivy Carter, born Jan. 7 in NYC.

"She's just the cutest thing," gushes Beyonce, 30, who croons to her little girl and even professes to "love" changing her diapers along with Jay, 42.

So who does her daughter most resemble? "She looks like Blue," says Bey, who's already back to pre-pregnancy weight. "She's her own person."

"The best thing about having a daughter is having a true and unique legacy," she adds. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."

That's probably the world's most beautiful sentiment, but what do you think of People's annual honor? Check out these Beyonce photos and vote below:
