Models Oliwia and Maca don the iconic cheerleader uniform for 'Cheergirls,' an exclusive editorial for C-Heads photographed by Giovanni Lipari.

The cheerleader occupies a unique space in the realm of pop culture and teen cinema. Seemingly existing in the crux of the Madonna/Whore complex, the cheerleader appears innocent, virginal and wholesome, and at the same time, she arouses lust and desire.

The contradictory elements of the cheerleader trope are further explored in this editorial. From the cheerleader outfits which are emblazoned with the word 'bad' across the chest, to the girls erotic posturing and nudity, the editorial explores our fascination with innocence, sexuality and our desire to see the two reconciled into a single human being.
