People magazine has named Beyoncé Knowles as the World's Most Beautiful Woman.
But the 30-year-old singer has plenty to offer other than her good looks — she's accumulated 16 Grammy awards throughout her career. And perhaps her greatest achievement of all occurred in January: welcoming daughter Blue Ivy Carter with husband Jay-Z.
"I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," she told People. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."
Jennifer Lopez is People's Most Beautiful Person
Knowles and the 42-year-old rapper have been married for four years. The couple is still overflowing with love for their baby, born Jan. 7 in New York City. "She's just the cutest thing," she said. "The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy... The word 'love' means something completely different now."
Aside from Beyoncé, the magazine's annual list of the World's Most Beautiful People includes Sofia Vergara
