While it is, again, quite common for young teenagers especially to be self-conscious and sensitive to what their peers say, think and do, it is worrisome if it is causing so much distress that your daughter feels she needs to take some action to reduce the stress. That strong desire to be the same as their peers tends to diminish over time and their greater independence, of you, and of being a slave to trends, tends to grow. Similarly, if her worries about how others think of her prevent her from doing certain activities or going to certain places, then it too could be problematic.
