Moss' million deal
13:30 17 July 2006
Kate Moss has signed a £1 million advertising deal with clothing company Belstaff.
The lucrative deal is the fifth major contract the supermodel has secured since pictures of her snorting cocaine were published last year.
Moss will appear in a black-and-white print campaign to advertise the firm's designer leather motorbike jackets.
Belstaff, famed for its classic biking leathers, was once a British-based company but has now relocated to Italy.
A source said: "We couldn't have asked for a better celebrity."
The new deal will push the 32-year-old catwalk queen's earnings up to around £12 million.
Since her cocaine scandal last September, Moss' earnings have soared.
In the wake of the exposé the British model was dropped by a number of top fashion houses including H+M and Roberto Cavalli.
But now the mother-of-one is back in favour with the fashion industry and has signed new deals with Burberry, Calvin, Klein and Virgin Mobile - contracts that are believed to worth around £11 million.
The astonishing figure is over five times Kate's earnings back in 2005 when profits for her company, Skate Enterprises, were just £1.3 million.
