* A male variant: in ''Literature/{{Dodger}}''; when Dodger gets invited to a posh dinner party, Solomon insists he spends some of his reward money at a top Saville Row tailor. Since the reward isn't ''that'' much, they get a relatively cheap suit, which Solomon's friend Izzy explains was a bespoke suit for a top client, but the tailor got the measurements wrong. Naturally, said client is at the dinner, wearing the correctly measured version of the same suit, and turns out to be Sir UsefulNotes/RobertPeel. Dodger ''is'' embarassed about this, partly because it draws attention to the fact he got the suit cheap, and partly because it's never a good idea to attract a Peeler's attention, and Sir Robert is King of the Peelers.

* In one ''Literature/ElementalAssassin'' novel, Gin goes to a party at the local museum in a dress her foster brother got for her, only to find that her ex is there on the arm of a girl wearing the same dress. Oddly, it's the ''men'' in the story who get worked up over it, as it means that the store had sold two of an allegedly one of a kind designer dress. This inadvertently saves Gin's life - when thieves raid the museum, they make a point of assassinating Gin first so she can't go Die Hard on them, only they accidentally kill the other girl, who bore a superficial resemblance to Gin and was wearing an identical dress.

** Taken to the extreme in Season 8 during a Music/{{Madonna}}-themed runway, when '''FOUR''' queens out of eight decided to wear the kimono from "Nothing Really Matters". The psychology behind this is interesting since you could tell the queens were actively trying to avoid this trope. With the exception of Chi Chi [=DeVayne=] wearing the cone bra from the Blonde Ambition Tour, no one else did Madonna's most iconic outfits such as the wedding dress from "Like a Virgin" or the ballgown from "Vogue", probably because they though someone else would. Meanwhile, the kimono is one of Madonna's more obscure looks but also one of her most elegant, so the girls who picked it each thought they were being unique, and that backfired ''so'' hard.

* Subverted in the sixth of the ''ComicBook/AdventureTimeGraphicNovels'', ''Masqued Mayhem''. The usually bad-tempered and bitchy Lumpy Space Princess and her frenemy Melissa both wear SeashellBra mermaid costumes to LSP's fancy dress party, but they end up complimenting each other with apparent sincerity instead of fighting.
