Hello Kitty: Love It or Hate It?

12/28/2006 at 11:00 AM ET

I’ve come to believe that the world in divided into two: those who adore Hello Kitty, and those who detest her. I am in the former group. In fact, when jewelry designer Tarina Tarantino made a high fashion Hello Kitty “pearl” necklace in 2003, I was first in line to buy one. . . well, make that second because I think Cameron Diaz got hers first. And the love continues — Jennifer Love Hewitt and Vanessa Minillo recently stocked up on Hello Kitty cashmere sweaters from Kitson. Knitted, this cat’s not cheap — Hello Kitty cashmere starts at $198 for a sweater and goes up, but you can get tons of things for under $10 at shop.sanrio.com or check out faux-vintage tees, from $33, on 80spurple.com. Tell us: Do you adore Hello Kitty? Or detest her? — Alison Singh Gee

You know who’s a big Hello Kitty fan and is pushing 40? Lisa Loeb!

hello kitty is adorable, but paris hilton should quit acting like a child. wearing hello kitty sweaters and proclaiming that you’ve sworn off sex don’t do anything for your “innocent image”…the one you’ve cultivated by hanging out pantiless with Britney, clubbing, drinking, and all that. it’s hypocritical.

Why does she always look strung out?

Get over it. Try a little class and style in your casual wear. My six YO neighbors are sooo over this along with Bratz and Barbie.

I will always hate hello kitty on adults! Those tops and accesories are made for little kids only!

Ok, first of all, Paris is a child so that is why she still feels fit to where child clothes. Have you seen some of the dresses and outfits she wears??? HELLO!!!! the girl has no fashion sense what-so-ever. I think anyone who even wears hello kitty is just a wanna be Paris the Slut Hilton….. if your self esteem is so low that you have to wear what u see slutty celebs wearing, then thats your problem….as for the real women out there, WE’RE BOSSY!!!


i adore hello kitty. shes so cute.

also, to the people who always diss paris hilton, they need to stop. paris is a role model. shes pretty funny smart and has ahmazing clothes! everyone is just jealous and they need to get over. LOVE PARISS!
