Gold will always be desirable, but I don’t think it’s ever looked quite as good as it does here. Camilla Nickerson styles a 24 carat bombshell suit from Marc Jacobs’ Fall/Winter 1996 collection in this stunning portrait taken from Michael’s ‘Gilt Trip’ editorial from US Vogue’s September 1996 issue, one of his earliest stories for the publication. This image was sourced from BWGreyscale via Archive.org.

A black and white close-up, taken from W’s December 1999 editorial ‘We Are The World’ here. Two young models show off Maison Martin Margiela’s Spring/Summer 2000 collection (as styled by Joe Zee) in this simple and nostalgic portrait. This image was scanned by/sourced from Autumne-Roi20's Live Journal account.

Dior’s Spring/Summer 2000 ready-to-wear collection by John Galliano is brought to life in this brilliantly eccentric portrait, taken from Michael and Joe Zee’s collections editorial ‘We Are The World’ from W December 1999. Lucie Wetzel is the model on the right, unfortunately I can’t ID the other guy and girl! This image was sourced from Autumne-Roi20's Live Journal account.

Caroline Ribeiro and a friend dress for the fast-paced life of urban environments better known as cities in Thompson’s blue-toned image, taken from Allure’s October 2000 editorial, ‘City Slickers’. This image was sourced from Leonardo at The Fashion Spot forums.

A gorgeous group shot of Noemie Lenoir, Danita Angell, Fernanda Tavares, Alek Wek and an unknown model by Michael, taken from an old Allure editorial. The black and white image of a diverse array of beauties in sleek evening wear certainly looks campaign worthy to my eye! A find that certainly made my day when I came across it on a-state-of-bliss’ Tumblr page.

An appropriately summery beauty shot of an unknown model (help would really be appreciated, been trying to work out who she is for a very long time!), wrapped up in a Marc Jacobs jacket and looking as fresh as the summer’s breeze. Taken from Allure’s June 2007 editorial, ‘Ocean Shades’. This image was sourced from Kokobombon’s Scans Blogspot.

A moody, but eye-catching portrait of an unknown model (mid 1990s, any help?). Michael Thompson’s early work tended to use this dark backdrop with eerie lighting mixture.

Taking inspiration from the iconic 1969 Sydney Pollack film ‘They Shoot Horses, Don’t They’, Jessica Miller and some other unknown models dance until their last breath in this dynamic shot taken from an editorial based all around Pollack’s film.

Enjoy a sultry moment on the beach, or rather in the shower with this close-up body shot of either Anne-Catherine Lacroix or Hannelore Knuts; can’t really work out which model it is based off of this shot alone obviously!

An eye-catching extreme beauty image here taken for an editorial entitled ‘Future Flash’ that Michael shot for Vogue Nippon’s May 2007 issue. I don’t have any information on the models or stylist (etc.), but I have to say that the whole story, like this bold, cutting-edge shot, is really compelling and memorable.
