Supermodel Kate Moss has signed a GBP500,000 (US$875,000) deal to model for designer label Calvin Klein just months after her career hung in the balance because of drug abuse allegations.

The deal signals Moss's return to the label that helped her rise to the top of the modelling league in the 1990s.

Leading fashion companies including Chanel, H&M and Burberry axed deals with the model after a UK newspaper printed pictures apparently showing her snorting cocaine.

The latest word on the ensuing legal probe is that there is insufficient evidence to enable police to make a charge.
