She started out 2012 as the proud mama to adorable Blue Ivy Carter, but now Beyoncé’s got something else to be proud of: People Magazine has named her the Most Beautiful Woman of 2012, and we couldn’t agree more. Who else has looked so consistently amazing, whether she’s showing off her post-baby bod while stepping out with baby Blue or Tumblring vacation pics with hubby Jay-Z?
This is the second time in a row that People has named a sizzling-hot, curvy girl for their cover pick, with steamy J.Lo taking the top honors last year. This year's list is a well-picked mix of up-and-comers and industry vets in both film and TV, and among other beauties called out in are Sofia Vergara, Charlize Theron, and Christina Hendricks.
People editor Janet Mock also points out in the issue that Bey is the first black woman in nine years to hold the top spot in this list, making the songstress’ win even more meaningful. So, congrats to this
single lady and all the other gals on this list. It’s always inspiring to see celebs called out for their gorgeousness as well as their class, and all these lovely lasses have got both in spades.
