Hello Kitty: Love It or Hate It?

Posted on

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 or check out faux-vintage tees, from $33, on Tell us: Do you adore Hello Kitty? Or detest her? — Alison Singh Gee
