2) Do you think they do more harm or good when it comes to style, confidence, and expectations (not body wise but clothing wise)?

I don't know about question 1.
2) The myth that scrawny is the ideal of beauty is perpetuated by fashion magazines who deserve blame for all the anorexic and bulimic girls out there. when you look at men's magazines though the ideal of female beauty is usually more curvy and busty not scrawny. so they're giving women a lot of misinformation.
the thigh gap, that guys like perfume or give a shit about jewelery are other dumb myths they perpetuate.

1. Yes and no, some fashion magazines want you to think that whatever they market out is in fashion.. If you see a model wear a minion toy on her head "considered to be fashionable" would it be fashionable? Do you think women will buy it?
2. I reckon it does more harm.. Some people can't afford the clothes in fashion magazines, making there confidence low (because the people who can afford them) are looked up upon. Magazines are there to make us consumers think that we need what they have in their magazine.. Or there is something wrong with us.. Its how they earn and make profit
