Diversity on Magazine Covers Widely Improved in 2016
Fashionista does a magazine cover diversity report every year. This year the online publication reviewed 147 covers from 10 leading U.S. fashion magazines.

In 2015, 27 of the 137 covers reviews featured non-white people while the year before 27 out of 136 did. It was an improvement but a small one going from 19.7% to 19.8%.
