It’s almost the weekend, and you’ve done a great job at work all week and looked really cute doing it. Congratulations! Let’s celebrate with some stunning black-and-white photos of your favorite stars posing in some Old Hollywood-esque ads for IWC’s “Portofino” watch collection, shall we?

First up is Emily Blunt, who puts her experience looking super-glam in The Devil Wears Prada to good use (maybe she picked up some tips from co-star Gisele Bündchen?) to good use in a dreamy black-and-white shot over coffee along the Italian coastline. “To work together with Peter Lindbergh in Portofino was an experience I will not forget,” Blunt says. “because his magnificent sense of beauty and attention to detail allowed us as cast members to truly transcend in time and space.”

Cate Blanchett also suited up (appropriately for a watch collection that’s IWC’s first offering for men and women) to pose with Christoph Waltz on a breezy boat ride. ““This year’s Portofino shoot was a pleasure. It is always an enjoyable experience working with Peter — and wearing a tuxedo changes the way one faces the world,” Blanchett says. “Although I loved portraying the dolce vita of the 1950s and 1960s during the Portofino photo shoot in 2010, I think this year’s experience with Peter Lindbergh was filled with more chic, more intensity and more passion.”

And of course, no stunning Italian shoot would be complete without a couple supermodels. Adriana Lima and Karolina Kurkova were snapped driving a convertible in a very To Catch a Thief manner — scarves, sunglasses and all. “My most memorable moment was simply being in the very unique and magical place of Portofino. I felt like I was transformed back in time — like a Hollywood movie star being shot by a director who wasn’t only shooting fashion, but timeless, raw photos,” says Kurkova.

Watch the stunning shoot in action, below, and tell us Which shot is your favorite? How badly do you want to join them in Italy right now?
