Poser, follower, a charlatan of sorts. One who copies or immitates all or most of the aspects dealing with their idol. They may wish to have certain clothing, skills, vocabulary, etc., of their idols instead of their own. Most likely a wannabe is lacking in self confidence and is looking for guidance.
Vanessa is a wannabe

People who "THINK" they are something that in reality they are NOT, however, they don't realize this, due to their lack of brains,therefor they imitate others personalities in order to feel good with themselves.
Usually teenagers that work in fast food restaurants who use their whole salary to fancy themselves as preps ALSO goth even if they can't tell the difference between punk-rock and pop-rock or between a public school and a Private Preparatory.
Andrea:I saw Jose Santiago yesterday at the mall his such a prep !!

Anthony:He was probably expending his whole bi-weekly salary & the money he borrowed from me on a pair of designer jeans.

Andrea:That's so STUPID why would you want to do that??

Anthony:Because he is a prep WANNABE!! He has yet to realize that we go to a public school & that he rides the bus.

Andrea:(sigh)No wonder he can't get his 87' BMW fixed he never has any money in the pocket. Poor loser, I MEAN wannabe !!

A person or a group of people who see a trend or fashion and try to become involved, only for the benifits of that particular fashion, but will move onto some thing else when the disadvantages out weigh the advantages:

Lacks the faith to lead their life and runs from their inner truth. Basically using arrogance to be defensive against other people: in essence reality.
That person is so arrogant, and believes too much that they are right, must be a wannabe.
