The ageless and super successful Jennifer Lopez has been named People’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2011. The honor caps a career comeback fueled by her new job on the top-rated TV show American Idol. The 41-year-old New York City-born singer and actress joined former winners Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and Beyonce Knowles to top People’s annual list of the world’s most beautiful people. “It’s so crazy. Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored,” Jen told People of their accolade. I feel happy and proud. Proud that I’m not 25!”

The Wedding Planner actress, who is married to singer Marc Anthony and took time off to have twins in 2008, has enjoyed a revival in popularity since becoming a judge this year on talent show American Idol. Since signing up last year for Idol–the most-watched TV show in the US–she’s been named the celebrity face of products ranging from beauty firm L’Oreal, to Venus razors and the Gucci children’s clothes collection. Her new single, the dance pop hit, “On The Floor,” has been topping charts around the world, giving Jen her first Top 10 Billboard single since 2003. She drops her first studio album in four years this May, called “Love?”. She also told People mag she feels better now than she did in her 20s. “In my 20s, I just wasn’t there in my mind and my soul and my spirit. It’s just great to be in the position I’m in now and be able to share that with the world.” Known for her glowing skin and curvy figure, she attributes her flawless looks to her personal life. “I think it’s because I have a lot of love in my life. I feel lucky to be an attractive person, but I’ve always felt that real beauty always comes from your heart.” She proves her new title in no uncertain terms looking gorgeous as usual in these glam Chloe sunglasses, which come in three chic frame colors. –rpuccia
