Enter Your Likeness in Our Look-Alike Contest!

ModCloth buyer, Sari, styled as Zooey Deschanel

April 20th is National Look-Alike Day, and we’re celebrating with a Style Look-Alike Contest!

All you have to do to enter is duplicate these simple directions:

1. Use at least one ModCloth item to create a look inspired by your favorite celebrity or style icon. Don’t just copy their outfit piece for piece, though – we want to see your individual style shine through, too!

2. Submit a photo of your fashionable facsimile to ModCloth’s Flickr Style Exchange.

3. In the photo description, list:

  • Your style icon
  • The ModCloth items you’re wearing
  • Why your outfit is fitting for your chosen icon – and you!

Submissions will be accepted from April 19 – April 30.  Participants will be judged on overall style and general ModCloth spirit.

If your look really knocks us out, you could receive a double prize of Christian Dior’s The Little Dictionary of Fashion and a $100 ModCloth gift certificate!

For full contest rules, please check out our Contest and Comments Guidelines.

    Sadly my fashion icon is Zooey and I really can’t think of anything else but this, haha.

  4. Bri 04/19/2010 at 12:25 am #

    yea…I’m zooey as well. Well…Alison Sudol (of A Fine Frenzy) as well.
    let me see if i can work something up…;)

  5. Bri 04/19/2010 at 12:26 am #

    i said “as well” twice.

  6. Katie 04/19/2010 at 7:31 am #

    Haha! Mine is Zooey too… now what do we do?!?!

    @Meghan, @Bri, @Katie —
    Hey, no worries! You can all choose Zooey as your style inspiration too! We just picked her as an example (and because we love her)!

  8. Kristin 04/19/2010 at 12:18 pm #

    You ladies should research style icons that influence Zooey…

  9. Sara C. 04/19/2010 at 1:57 pm #

    Sari, you look adorable here! Too cute <3

  10. Michelle 04/19/2010 at 2:16 pm #

    1. Who is Sari?

    2. I would say I look most like Zooey as well. What a tizzy, huh? 🙂

  12. LN 04/19/2010 at 3:11 pm #

    Do you get extra points if you physically resemble zooey too? haha

  13. chann 04/19/2010 at 4:58 pm #

    wait i don’t understand. so you pick an outfit that would “look good” on a celebrity?

  14. chann 04/19/2010 at 4:59 pm #

    wait i get it. okay. hahaha. you guys’ll love me! i hope. hahah

  15. chann 04/19/2010 at 5:00 pm #

    WAIT! i’m sorry. i have a question. can you be 13 years old?

    As per our Contest and Comment Guidelines: “Any entrant who is under the age of 18 and/or a minor in his or her state of residence must have permission of parent or legal guardian to enter.”

  17. Meghan 04/19/2010 at 6:13 pm #

    Must everything in the outfit be from Modcloth?

  18. Becki 04/19/2010 at 9:00 pm #

    I’m confused. Are we to find stuff in our own wardrobe and take a pic of ourselves, as long as there is one ModCloth item? And do we just post in on the flickr style exchange anywhere, or somewhere specific?

  19. lindsay 04/22/2010 at 6:26 pm #

    can we do more than one person?

  20. eva 04/25/2010 at 3:49 am #

    i’d love to enter this, but my style icon is courtney love and i look absolutely nothing like her.

    Hi everyone! We’d like to clear up any confusion regarding this contest.

    You can use anything you’d like to create your Look-Alike outfit, just as long as your outfit contains at least one ModCloth item. When you’ve done that, just take a photo of yourself and post it anywhere on ModCloth’s Flickr Style Exchange (there is no designated area within the Exchange for these contest photos).

    You need not physically resemble your style icon; you simply need to create a look that resembles their style!

    And finally, please feel free to submit as many outfit photos as you like, as long as each one features a style based on a different icon!

  23. Kristen 04/27/2010 at 3:27 pm #

    Can it be a movie character rather than the celebrity that plays them? For example style an outfit as Carrie Bradshaw rather than Sarah Jessica Parker. Although their styles are pretty similar anyway 🙂

  24. Elise 04/28/2010 at 8:21 pm #

    Second Kristen’s question…

    Also, do I need to look anything like my style icon? I can’t think of any Asian-American celebs who share my fashion sense, sadly…

    I hope I win. I really have been jonesing for some boots on here. C:
