Kylie Minogue has triumphed on three counts having been voted both the sexiest and most beautiful woman in the world as well as top pop star of 2002.

The pop princess beat the likes of J-Lo and Holly Valance to be named Heat magazine's sexiest female star for the second year running.

The Aussie singer was voted the most beautiful woman and top pop star of 2002 in polls by London tourist attraction Madame Tussaud's.

Heat readers put Kylie ahead of TV presenter Cat Deeley, pop star Britney Spears and actresses Jennifer Aniston and Catherine Zeta Jones.
