Beyonce beats Kate Middleton to be named Most Beautiful Woman 2012

Beyonce is the World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2012, according to People Magazine.

The 30-year-old yummy-mummy has been featured in the glamorous list before, but this is the first year she has clinched the top spot.

She said: "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."

Beyonce, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, gave birth to a daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January.

She added: “The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy.

“The word 'love' means something completely different now.”

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara was second on the list, with Snow White and the Huntsman star Charlize Theron in third place.

Lily Collins also features, alongside Madeleine Stowe, Christina Hendricks, Michelle Williams, Paula Patton and country singer Miranda Lambert.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was tenth in the list. Oh to be beautiful...
