Richardson was popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s when full "hourglass" figures became popular. She had memorable ad campaigns for Flex Shampoo and Revlon Cosmetics. Richardson also was the focus of John Mellencamp's video for the song "Let It All Hang Out," with as much as 90% of the video being footage of her dancing scantily-clad.
