Maybe models should start auctioning off pictures of themselves for a living!!

The 2005 cocaine scandal had no affect on Kate Moss' modeling career.
In fact, it actually helped her career. Thanks to a great agent and loyal clients the still very much in demand supermodel's annual income doubled from $3.1 million to $6.3 million.
Mossy's agent Sarah Doukas told Radio 4 in a recent interview:

It's great that she managed to come out on top, but what kind of message is this sending to aspiring models???
