Every year, People Magazine releases their “World’s Most Beautiful” list – a list that celebrates beauty inside and out. In the past, celebrities such as Lupita Nyong’o, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce have topped the list, and this year the honour went to Sandra Bullock!

In the acting world, Bullock is an Oscar winner and one of the highest paid actresses in the industry. In the business world, she runs a production company, owns a restaurant (Bess Bistro) and flower shop/boutique bakery (Walton’s Fancy and Staple). In the philanthropic world, she has been recognized for her charitable donations to organizations such as the Red Cross and Doctor’s without Borders. In her personal life, she is a single mother who shows nothing but love and support for her now 5-year-old adopted son. All of the aforementioned show us how business savvy, talented, charitable, loving and driven she is, and exactly why she was chosen as People’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2015. We couldn’t be more excited for her, especially after hearing her thoughts on what true beauty is:

“Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it’s just so hard not to say, ‘Oh, I need to look like that,’ ” she explains. “No, be a good person, be a good mom, do a good job with the lunch, let someone cut in front of you who looks like they’re in a bigger hurry. The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren’t trying.”

Other ladies that made the list include Canada’s Shay Mitchell, Orange is the New Black‘s Laverne Cox, singer Meghan Trainor, and model GiGi Hadid. You can read more about these ladies and the others that made the list on People.com.
