As private as Beyonce is, she’s letting her fans in more and more since the somewhat glamorous birth of Blue Ivy Carter. The World’s Most Beautiful Woman took cameras behind-the-scenes of her PEOPLE photo shoot, and the results are both moving and hilarious.

The video opens with a helicopter landing. Beyonce, clad in black from the floppy hat on her head to the shoes on her toes, steps out of the copter and does a silly dance on the grass. So cute!

Beyonce enters the estate where the shoot took place, and we see the ‘End of Time’ singer in various states of dolled up and in different outfits.

“Being named the world’s most beautiful woman is really hard to say,” Bey says smiling once she’s all done up and glammed out. “It’s overwhelming — it makes me feel very crunchy,” she laughed, “and that means ‘embarrassed.’”

Beyonce revealed that she has another idea of who the most beautiful woman in the world is. “My mother is absolutely the most beautiful woman in the world,” Bey says humbly. “I’ve had an incredible example. I know that women are like fine wine and we get better with age. She’s just such a glamorous, sophisticated, classy, gentle, beautiful woman.”

When does Bey feel the most beautiful? Considering she’s stunning all the time, it’s got to be tough to narrow down, but she managed. “When I feel loved. When I feel secure. When I feel confident,” she said. “It’s really about who you are, the human being, that makes you beautiful.” Of course, flawless skin and a bangin’ bod don’t hurt either, right?

Blue Ivy contributed to Bey’s confidence — and to her new mama glow. “I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth, and I have never felt so connected and I never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth, and never so proud of myself,” Beyonce gushed. “It means more to me that I was named this after I became a mother.”

Stay tuned to the end of the video, where the viewer is treated to rare outtakes of Bey. She may be the world’s most beautiful woman, but that doesn’t mean she — nor her film takes — are perfect!
