The first promo poster for Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette has finally been revealed by ABC. Lindsay looks phenomenal in her gown (which is obviously the color of rose petals and true love), but there is a notable lack of any clever tagline for the season.

It will be hard for me, personally, to forget the dumbest advertisement ever released, second only to the one where Kendall Jenner solves police brutality with a can of soda, but Nivea certainly hopes I will.
I may never drink Pepsi again.
