Beyoncé has been crowned the World's Most Beautiful Woman in a list compiled by People magazine.
The former Destiny's Child star fought off some tough competition from the likes of Kate Middleton, Michelle Williams and Charlize Theron to land the title.
Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, Sofia Vergara and Mirror Mirror actress Lily Collins also featured in the list.
Speaking to the publication about the accolade, Queen B stated: "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth,"
The Love On Top singer continued: "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."
When quizzed about her daughter Blue Ivy, Bey gushed: "She's just the cutest thing."
She was then asked if baby Blue looks more like herself or father Jay-Z, to which the Single Ladies hitmaker replied: "She looks like Blue. She's her own person.
"The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The word 'love' means something completely different now."
