They are known for their trademark tans, and dressing up to the nines for nights out in their beloved Essex.
But the TOWIE stars were worlds away from their usual selves on Thursday, when they transformed into Shakespearean figures for the new show teaser.
Gemma - Collins - Elizabethan - Gown - James
Gemma Collins was typically glamorous in a beaded Elizabethan gown while James 'Arg' Argent channeled Henry VIII in his burgundy garb - but many series regulars were missing from the promo shots, after making a sudden departure last month.
Gemma still managed to look glamorous in her beaded beige gown and glittering headdress, as she posed beside her on/off beau Arg, dressed as her King.
Lauren - Pope - Set - Pulses - Gown
Lauren Pope set pulses racing in a busty black gown, complete with gold embellishments and fluffy sleeves, while Georgia Kousoulou followed suit in an eye-popping corset and large glittering crown.

Boyfriend - James - Lock - Velvet - Jacket
Her boyfriend James Lock slipped into an opulent velvet jacket and trousers, while Pete Wicks channeled his inner Romeo in a peasant's shirt, as he smouldered for the camera with a red rose in hand.
Bobby Norris then posed as Prince Hamlet with a skull held up in front of him - which was of course, covered with diamanté, in true TOWIE style.
Shoot - Tommy - Mallett - Camera - Figure
Rounding off the Tudor-themed shoot was Tommy Mallett, laughing for the camera as a jester-like figure, and Diags, looking similar to Shakespeare himself in a traditional ruff collar.
However, a number of familiar faces did not appear in the official portraits - after seven series regulars, including Amber Dowding and Chris Clark, were allegedly axed.
Pair - Show - Mike - Hassini - Jack
The pair - who recently moved in together - left the show alongside Mike Hassini, Jack Rigden, Jordan Brook, Maddie Hooper...
