A Teenage Dream, indeed.
So for the cover of her third studio album, Teenage Dream, the betrothed pop princess went ahead and had fun with her naughty-angel reputation, stretching out on a strategically placed cloud and leaving all clothing and accessories—including her halo—behind.

Live the dream starting Aug. 24, but take our poll first:
