Better than his previous Vanity Fair cover but this is still BAD. A great downfall compared to their March issue.

He has very feminine hands.
They're not the hands of a strong man and that's what makes that cover even more ridiculous.
Someone like Robert Pattinson probably screams and runs when he sees an alligator, I thoroughly doubt he would pick one up.
With Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Henry Cavill maybe even Garrett Hedlund this cover may work.
It would still be silly, but they have enough ruggedness to pull it off.
Pattinson does not.

There are a few connections. As made clear on the cover, he's trying to move out of the Twilight Zone, the "Twilight" highlight of his life that's pretty much the foundation of his career. Robert Pattinson in a way has become the face of young hollywood. His name is emblematic of a teen blockbuster and that's a difficult image to come out of. How does he, if possible, make the transition from teen hearthrob to a bonafide moviestar? The spread, to me, is supposed to communicate how trying this state of transience can be for a young actor. It's random, but there's a little depth there.

It has the elements of a somewhat interesting story, but loses its merits because of the execution and silly antics (metaphorically linking this transition to wrestling an alligator?!). Notice I did not say poor execution- it should be very successful in what it wants to do essentially, and that is to sell. However, I find it pretty hard to believe that anyone would actually want to read about him. To tell the truth, I forgot who he was for a minute when I saw his name in the title.
