Ashley C. Richardson (born June 27, 1965) is an American former model. She has appeared on the cover of Elle a total of seven times. Her photo has also been on the cover of Cosmopolitan twice. She has made six appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1995). In the wave of publicity surrounding her being chosen to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 1991, it was erroneously reported that she was the wife of the NFL San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana, when in reality she was married to the Miami nightclub owner Paul Montana (no relation), and Joe Montana was married to a different woman. Their marriage ended in divorce a few years later, and Richardson went back to using her complete maiden name.
Richardson later had a brief relationship with model Brian Buzzini, resulting in a child, Daisy. She lost all of her pregnancy weight and later appeared in the 1995 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
During the height of her career, she visited US military installations in a morale-boosting effort to support the American troops, including the San Diego Naval Submarine Base in 1991, when she visited the USS Haddock.
