I love the column of type hugs the image. The sharp edges mirror the triangular images on the left side. Although there is alot of type here, I think it is contrasted nicely with the image of the woman. The yellow also brings interest to the spread.
The way they formatted the words around the image (which is graphics vs. actual picture) and the font they used for the text is just so different from what you normally see sitting on the magazine rack.
