Beyonce says Naomi Campbell, Halle Berry and Kim Kardashian make it look effortless when it comes to their looks, and she adds, "You can be beautiful but if you’re not secure in yourself, you don’t come across as sexy.” True that! But didn't Kim recently reveal that it took her three hours to get ready for an event? Effortless for her perhaps, but certainly not her hair and makeup team! Beyonce says she allows herself to indulge every now and then, telling the mag, “I love my butter pecan ice cream, but I also love to work out. We all have our issues. Mine is arms and legs, keeping them tight and toned. It takes work, believe me.”

So will she start a family any time soon? “Yes, I do want to embrace what happens next and family," she says. "It’s funny how your outlook changes as you get older, how you look at life – at other women – in a different way. I have so much admiration for women who are mothers, who balance family and work.”
