Using facial recognition tools to filter only skin tones, the firm analyzed 262 female models to find that majority of the black models featured also have lighter skin. Lupita Nyong'o was the darkest model on the covers while Anne Hathaway came out to be the lighest. The analysis also revealed a single person's colour could look different based on who shot the image and how it was edited. The best example being Rihanna who's skin tone spanned through 40% of the lightness range.
