Repeat Offender: How Bartender-Turned-Model Mark Wystrach Ended Up in Los Angeles Magazine. Again.


After wrapping the photo shoot for our “The Land of Ahhs” fashion feature, we discovered that the male model who plays the part of “Lion” in the Wizard of Oz-inspired spread had graced the pages of Los Angeles magazine once before. You have to look for him, but Mark Wystrach is the bartender in the cover image from our February 2011 issue (above left). He no longer tends bar, however. Now he runs a shoe company that uses recycled materials like plastic bags to make its products. In fact we’re featuring a pair in our upcoming April issue. That’s what I call a triple threat.
