** In Season 10, this fuels the rivalry between contestants Miz Cracker and Aquaria. As they are both thin, white, [[TheTwink twinkish]] queens from New York City with a similar aesthetic, they're often mistaken for each other, and Aquaria has long accused Cracker of copying her style.

* Played for laughs during the MTV Video Music Awards one year. Music/WhitneyHouston and Music/MariahCarey (who were believed to have disliked each other,) emerged from opposite sides of the stage to present an award together, in identical [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9iJco5PFEc brown silk gowns.]] There was an awkward silence as a cat fight was anticipated, until Mariah and Whiteny revealed it was all a gag, and each ripped their gowns (actually just removed the extra fabric) to make them different by altering the hemlines.

When someone is conscious about their appearance, buying clothes that look and fit ''juuuuust right'' can be a long and painstaking process. Seeing someone else in the same outfit is akin to an artist having their style copied. See MarsAndVenusGenderContrast, since two men in the same outfit are far more likely to laugh over it and move on (probably aided by the fact that men's fashion isn't nearly as varied; in most formal events, all men will be wearing identical tuxedos.) Contrast WholeCostumeReference (in that wearing the same outfit is considered a good thing). Contrast also with CoordinatedClothes where characters intentionally wear matching clothes to show that they belong together.

* "Paris Original" from the musical ''HowToSucceedInBusinessWithoutReallyTrying'' takes this to its logical extreme, as each secretary enters in succession, and reacts in horror as she sees every other one wearing the same dress: "Some irresponsible dress manufacturer just didn't play fair!"
