Plot

Set in the fictional city of Stilesville, the show revolves around four adolescents (Cloe, Jade, Sasha, Yasmin) running their own teen magazine, titled "Bratz", while juggling school life at Stiles High School. Their rival magazine is "Your Thing", owned and run by the proud and demanding self-proclaimed "Reigning Queen of Fashion" Burdine Maxwell, and her mean identical twin interns Kirstee and Kaycee, known infamously as "the Tweevils". Accompanied by their friends Dylan, Cameron, and Ethan, the girls' adventures are exploited throughout the series, both in and outside of Stylesville.
