People magazine has just put released it’s choices for the world’s most beautiful women for 2012 and topping the list this year is new mother Beyoncé Knowles.
Though Beyoncé has always been considered a gorgeous style and beauty icon, she told the magazine she feels more comfortable than ever with who she is now, after having Blue Ivy.
“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 sense of purpose on this earth.”
Another one of our favorite ladies, Paula Patton, also made the cut this year, and her pic in the magazine’s upcoming issue shows us exactly why we love this natural beauty. The mother who gave birth to her first son in April 2010 told People since becoming a mom, “I wear less makeup and am less fussy. I accept myself more because I have less time to be down about myself!” There’s something else singer Robin Thicke’s wife also figured out about beauty a while back.
“I realized a long time ago I’m not going to be a size 0. For me, life is about drinking wine and having bread and cheese – just not every day!”
Moderation definitely looks good on her and Bey and they clearly prove becoming a mother doesn’t mean losing your sexy. Congrats to these beautiful mommies for making the list!
