The "retro vixen" is a look that's been referenced time and time again; however, photographer Shaira Luna mixed things up for this exclusive C-Heads editorial.

Luna's subject, Genie from Elite Models, is more than just a vixen; she is a complex, multifaceted woman whose identity is not clear nor linear. Genie can behave as a vixen one day, and a playful schoolgirl the next; she has no limits.

By adding more layers to the "vixen" trope, Luna complicates it. She looks for the human woman underneath the title, and therefore confronts the singular conception of female sexuality that is often thrust upon by the male gaze. In this editorial by Shaira Luna, viewers are able to indulge their nostalgia in a way that is versatile and well-rounded.
