    Step aside, Jennifer Lopez. Another pretty face has taken over the planet.

    Beyoncé has just been chosen by People as the World's Most Beautiful Woman, a year after the American Idol judge received the very same honor.

    And the new mom is more than happy to give much of the credit for looking so good to her and hubby Jay-Z's baby girl, Blue Ivy.

    "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," the pop star tells the magazine. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."

    The Grammy winner added that since the arrival of her little bundle of joy, "the word love means something completely different now."
