Anything worth knowing in the aesthetics of fashion, art, sex and travel — Live Fast magazine editrix, Vivianne Lapointe has been there, done that. A free dive down the rabbit hole of Live Fast’s NSFW sensually steamy photographs, mind-blowing art, lust-worthy fashion and insightful interviews, it’s clear as Lucite to see Vivianne’s pure love for the creative process in all forms.

Adventure, creativity, intimacy and feminine power are some of the main facets of the brand. While our content isn’t gender tailored, it is curated by a fantastic team of intelligent women with the goal of empowering young creative,” Vivianne says.
Live FAST is about fashion, art, sex and travel. What inspired you to start Live FAST and when did you first launch it?
I started Live FAST in 2010 a few months after moving to LA from New York City. My life is in constant movement and in order to find some kind of balance and a state of happiness I’ve had to learn over the years to focus on the things that make me lose track of time and actually live in the present. At one point I narrowed it down to the word FAST, an acronym for Fashion, Art, Sex and Travel i.e. what really gets me off. That’s really the inspiration behind the mag, although it’s grown a lot from there.
What were you up to prior to launching Live FAST?
Freelance writing for everyone and their mothers :)
How would you describe yourself and your contribution to social media and your online community of followers?
