Miley Cyrus has ditched those hideous sweatpant jeans -- we tried to forget 'em, but we'll drudge them up for the sake of this discussion-- for priceless couture in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, and you cannot argue with the results.

While she still has her famed punk pixie -- which she got a year ago -- she exhibits a level of taste, maturity and class in these gowns and pieces that we've not yet seen from her. More of this, please! Although we must admit we'd love to see her twerk in one of the short dresses she dons in this spread.

Cyrus' blush and ruffled Armani Prive confection looks like something we saw on Penelope Cruz at the Oscars one year. But this ultra femme gown suits Miss Miley perfectly.

We see London, we see France, we see Miley's underpants in this sheer and see-through Valentino column dress. A black slip underneath would have been a better choice, but...

Cyrus is sitting pretty in this Chanel Haute Couture outfit. Perfect for a night of twerking, no?
