I love the use of technology on this image. The background is very plain and there's a clear lack of cover lines so the focus is on what is going on in the image. Although I think this would be very hard to re-create, it would look very artistic.
Two aspects of this magazine cover that are really impressive are the typographical relationships and the way the image covers the masthead. The typographical relationship is contrasting, with serif for the masthead and main cover line about Emma Watson, while the rest of the cover lines are sans-serif. This almost creates a hierarchy of sorts, showing that the text in serif is most important.
