New mom Beyonce has reason for jubilation – the singer has been named the World’s Most Beautiful Woman 2012 by People’s Magazine which described her as a force of nature, style icon & a proud mother.
This marks the ninth time Beyonce has made the mag’s coveted list. Bey joined in the 23rd annual issue to fellow ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ Hall of Famers Julia Roberts (13 times), Nicole Kidman (10 times) and Mad Men‘s actress Jessica Pare – a first timer on the mag’s list.
Here’s a summary of her best style moments. Whether she rocked the red carpet or stunned in a video, these are Beyonce’s 5 Best Style Moments.
2007 Grammys After-Party: Beyonce rocked this extreme backless black sequined Roberto Cavalli gown to the 2007 Grammys After Party. This was the year that Beyonce performed her Dreamgirls hit song “Listen.” But the real showstopper was this va-va-voom dress.
2007 Golden Globes: Blink once and I can’t tell if this is J.Lo or Beyonce. Beyonce wore this shimmery gold Elie Saab gown to the 2007 Golden Globes where she was nominated for her role in “Dreamgirls.” She didn’t go home with the award, but it doesn’t matter because she already looked like the golden statue.
2009 BET Awards: You’re either gonna LOVE or HATE this dress, but I’m obsessed with it. Beyonce rocked this tiny sequined minidress that sparkled every color of the rainbow. This dress made perfect sense for the 2009 BET Awards.
“Best Thing I Never Had” Video: We got a glimpse of Beyonce’s actual wedding dress in her video for “I Was Here” but if you blink, you’ll miss it, so I prefer her fake wedding dress in her video for “Best Thing I Never Had.” That dress was huge!
2011 MTV VMA’s: The best dress Beyonce ever wore was the orange Lanvin one shouldered gown she debuted her baby bump in. Beyonce wears motherhood so well.
