Kate MossKate Moss enjoyed a lucrative Christmas period after netting almost $10.5 million by winding up one of her private companies.

The British catwalk queen launched Skate Enterprises in 1993 to hold her huge modeling fees.

The beauty decided to shut the business in 2008 following tax changes for big earners in the U.K., but the closure of the 15-year-old company was only finalized just before the festive period.

Moss took away for each of her 100 shares, amounting to a $10.3 million payday, according to Britain's The Sun.

However, Moss won't be able to spend the entire sum - the company is yet to pay a $2.2 million tax bill.
