Now in its 21th year, the Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance has been listed by Frommer's as "300 Unmissable Events in the World."

On what is often said to be the world's most fashionable avenue, this year's event celebrated two centenaries, 100 years of the city of Beverly Hills and the 100th birthday of Maserati, the event's 2014 honored marque. In addition to an extensive display of the current Maserati range, including the recently announced GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition, there were three significant, classic postwar Maseratis on display on Rodeo Drive.

In celebrating 100 years of horse power, this year's concours showcased cars owned by celebrity residents such as Fred Astaire, Jean Harlow, Tom Mix, Elvis and Howard Hughes were on display joined by cars owned by fashion legends such as Coco Chanel, Fred Hayman and Bijan. Other cars were featured in An American in Paris, The Beverly Hillbillies and HBO's Entourage.

Held every Father's Day, the Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance is totally free for spectators and is unique in all the world.
