    There are plenty of obvious things that all celebrities seem to have in common. Namely an enviable closet, a substantial paycheck, and — for several ladies on the list — a shared spotlight with Matthew McConaughey. But, it's actually a subtle detail that ties them all together — one that's as ubiquitous on the red carpet as Giuliana Rancic. We are of course referring to the bright red sole of a Christian Louboutin heel. It's the signature flash of color that lets you and everyone standing behind you know that your shoes are not only luxe, but made by someone who's as obsessed with sexy footwear as it gets. And, someone who's celebrating a birthday today.

    Mr. Louboutin has made headlines before for creating heels in every possible shade of nude, inspired by Disney villains, and some that are strictly for wearing on your fingers. But, by far his legacy is one that's been made on the red carpet. And, the 30 celebrities ahead can vouch for that.

    These are a mere fraction of the stars who swear by Louboutin's crimson trademark, and admittedly, an even smaller representation of the countless soles Christian has touched. (See what we did there?)
