this is a photo from Knit 'n Style magazine, the model is wearing a top with an interesting finish on the neckline that I'd like to do if someone can help me figure out how to! thanks

A quick Google search for "twisted neckband tutorial" brought up quite a few hits, including this great discussion from another message board, featuring a tutorial from Marcy Tilton and a Silhouettes pattern (#175) with this very neckline! http://artisanssquare.com/sg/index.php?topic=7029.0

For the Marcy Tilton tutorial, I found it easier to Google that directly than to search through her tutorials manually, but Silhouettes 175 looks even closer to your inspiration piece.

I have a RTW knit top with a narrow twisted neck binding, and honestly, it doesn't look intentional. I think the effect is a lot more effective with a wider band, so it looks like you meant your binding to twist as you sewed it on. :)

Simplicity 2593 has a similar neckline. The roll on the neck is a softer twist.

The neckline is gathered at the center front. The neck roll is a long rectangle piece that is sewn into a long tube, leaving a couple inches at the ends unsewn. Tube is turned inside out and twisted. How much depends on the fabric and the look you want. Then the right sides of the ends are put together and sewn to make it a big loop. The gap in the tube is handsewn together. Then the whole neck roll thing is hand sewn onto the neck line. This pattern had more hand sewing than I would have liked but this is how this particular pattern is put together.

This is clearly an overlapping oval shape that is shaved/cut off. If I had to reproduce this neckline I would use an oval template and make a pattern the size I wanted (several of them) and overlap in muslin until I get the look/feel I think is closest to the picture in the link you provided. I would use a light-to-medium weight interfacing/backing to give the individual ovals body when sewing the actual garment. You'll have to test this with the actual fabric you'll be using of course. Hope this helps.
