With the release of Emily Maynard’s official promo photo for The Bachelorette Season 8, we’ve gotten even more excited for the highly-anticipated May 14 premiere!

In the photo, the North Carolina cutie looks absolutely gorgeous sporting flirty makeup, flawless hair, and a feminine pastel blouse.

Of course, we couldn’t resist comparing the image to that of her predecessor, one Miss Ashley Hebert. Instead of the more traditional shots that we saw with Ali Fedotowsky and Jillian Harris, Ash played up her sassy side in a sequined zebra skirt and hot pink stiletto heels.

We loved the unexpected departure from the standard ABC shots, though at the time, you fans seemed a bit torn. Now that we’re back with Emily’s classic promo, we have to ask — who do you think makes the cuter Bachelorette?
