Becoming the must-have footwear brand of the past decade, it's probably easier to count the celebrities who haven't been seen sporting a red sole on the red carpet as opposed to those who have - with faithful fans including Victoria Beckham, Blake Lively and Rihanna.
Naturally, such a milestone wasn't going to go uncelebrated, with a glossy coffee table book being released to coincide with the big birthday: a pink leather-bound bible jam-packed with gorgeous imagery of covetable shoes - we'd imagine it's currently sat at the top of many a fashionista's Christmas wish list.
Including a forword by John Malkovich, modelling from Dita Von Teese and Kristin Scott Thomas, and photography from Philippe Garcia, the book really is a work of art within itself - detailing the history of Louboutin's life's work, and the inspirations behind his creativity.

And that's not all. There's also set to be a one-off retrospective exhibition at The Design Museum early next year, meaning you can pop along and see a selection of the most celebrated shoes from the book with your very own eyes.
The Christian Louboutin exhibition will run from 28 March to 1 July 2012, with tickets priced at £10 for adults, £9 for concessions and £6 for students.
