In preparation for the "Bad Girls Club Miami" reunion special, the company styled four different Bad Girls with different custom looks based on their characters. While watching the reunion episode, fans can visit the Bad Girls Club Facebook page to purchase the apparel, footwear, and beauty products they are seeing on-air. A branded Facebook store, "Shop the Look: BGC Boutique," within the "Bad Girls Club" Facebook page will go live simultaneously on Tuesday, November 16, with the airing of part one of the reunion special. Additionally, fans will get bonus material including instructional and how-to video vignettes showcasing the styling sessions along with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the show.
