Rena Forbes arrived in an E-Class Mercedez-Benz and the cake she had made depicted the plates.

For her 50th birthday, the Montego Bay businesswoman, who is managing director of Apex Car Rentals and Insurance, had her family and close friends in attendance at the party at Sea Gardens Hotel in the tourism capital.

Looking like a sibling of her children, Forbes, who is originally from Westmoreland, donned purple for the cake cutting and a fabulously hot and sexy red gown to top her evening of celebration. She made much more than a fashion statement, and this was evidenced by the welcoming red carpet at the entrance to the beachside venue, adorned by large standee banners depicting her beauty.

"For years, Rena has been a role model and a source of encouragement, particularly when I am going through my darkest moments," her friend and confidante, Maureen Reid, said. "She is a good soul, a sincere person, who is loved and respected by her peers."
