The Most Beautiful Girl In The World is a Prince (as ) video released for broadcast and to promote the single, at the time issued as an independent release from Warner Bros.

In December 1993 Prince (as ) had an ad placed in US, British, a Dutch and Spanish publication reading: “Eligible bachelor seeks the most beautiful girl in the world to spend the holidays with” and encouraged all interested to send videos and/or pictures to Paisley Park Studios. The material sent in response to the advertisement (reportedly, over 50,000 girls responded) was utilized for the video. Seven finalists were chosen to appear in the video while 30 semi-finalists were featured on the sleeve of the record. Marva Collins makes a cameo appearance in the video which was originally scheduled to be shot in Los Angeles City Hall on January 23rd, but was rescheduled to to place in Minneapolis 6 days later, due to an earthquake in California.

The video was included in The Beautiful Experience TV-special (with a scene in which Jan, Nona Gaye’s character, is elected as the 43rd US president). It was uploaded by The Prince Estate on Prince YouTube channel in 2017, and later deleted due to a legal dispute regarding the song that existed at the time. The video was re-uploaded in late February 2022.
