NEW YORK— We first came to know her as the “cutie with the booty” Fly Girl dancer on Keenan Ivory Wayan’s, “In Living Color,” then the world grew to love her as an actress, singer and her most recent gig, “American Idol” judge.

People magazine is naming Jennifer Lopez the World’s Most Beautiful Woman.

J-Lo tops the magazine’s annual list of “the World’s Most Beautiful” in a special double issue.  She joins the ranks of other “People” beauties, including Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and Houston’s own, Beyonce’ Knowles.

“Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored,” Lopez said in a People Magazine interview.

Long beyond her days of the turning heads in the “infamous green Versace dress,” the singer-actress has earned her status as a beauty and style icon, something she says that family – husband Marc Anthony and twins Emme and Max, 3 – has taught her. As for looking glam week in and week out on American Idol, Lopez says, “I don’t want anybody thinking it’s easy. It does take time and it’s hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody’s friend!”

Commenting on her “Most Beautiful” title, the 41-year-old said, “I feel happy and proud. Proud that I’m not 25!
