The verdict wasn't obtained from your conventional beauty pageant(s). 30-year-old award-winning singer, Beyonce has emerged World's Most Beautiful on the 2012 edition of the People magazine.

Reflecting on her motherhood experience so far 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."

Describing her 3months old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter whom she loves singing to she claimed "She's just the cutest thing."

Does she resemble the most vibrant member of the Destiny Child group or famed rapper Jay Z?

"She looks like Blue, She's her own person. The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy," she adds. "The word 'love' means something completely different now."
